Happy Thanksgiving!
Friday, November 26, 2010

We hosted our first Thanksgiving feast in our new home yesterday, and it was such a treat! Eric served up his famous grilled turkey while I whipped up a few masterpieces of my own. And Avery and I teamed up to bake the most scrumptious mini-tartlets known to man. And Wyatt? Well, he was just happy to serve as the official taste-tester. It's a pretty tough job, but I guess someone has to do it.

Avery has turned into quite the little baker this holiday season, so much that the step stool has nearly become a permanent fixture in our kitchen. Now, if I could just get her to actually sample some of her culinary masterpieces, I'd be in hog heaven.

We're gearing up for Round 2 with my family this afternoon and really wishing I hadn't donated my fat pants to charity.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
