Thanksgiving, 2006On Saturday we hosted the first Thanksgiving dinner at Chez Darlington. Due to the size of our kitchen this became a bit of a logistical nightmare but we persevered.

Well, I say “we” but pretty much all the cooking was down to B with me in more of a motivational role, insisting that the spinach and cheese casserole smelled really good and that the turkey looked great. I got the easy job as it was true!

Our guests helped with the rest of the food, with MC bringing the snacks, AP concocting a butternut squash and tomato side, PG and IY providing the drinks and EL baked banana and pumpkin bread.

I think it’s fair to say that we all left thankful to have such great friends and completely pogged from all the food.
