Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Our Thanksgiving Orphan's event is over once again for this year; I realized yesterday that I can't remember how many years we've been doing it. Lots. We did all the furniture rearranging, cooking, cleaning, some of the preparatory dishwashing, all with the help of Cliff who stayed with us, and then folks started arriving. In the end, twenty people sat at the tables. I made two dishes, my spiced pecans, and the curried fruit. forestcats made far more, including two turkeys, two bison tritips, oyster pie, a vegan stuffing and an Andouille sausage one, vegan mashed potatoes, her double-baked potatoes with bacon, steamed green beans, vegan fried gyoza, several of her cheeses including a gouda and a blue, and on and on and on. Folks hung around for a good long time after the meal, and among other things took down the dead tree in the backyard. We loved having you all here; thank you for joining us!

Next event: the cookie exchange!
