Thanksgiving at the LC Home


This year the Lawyer and I decided to have an intimate Thanksgiving dinner at home.  No running around, no multiple trips anywhere, just good food and chill at home.

Many thanks to my talented wife for her fantastic tablescape and decorations.  She put a lot of time and thought into it and knocked it out of the park.

Many thanks to my Mother-in-Law, who is an accomplished baker.  She took care of the dessert portion of the meal by making two wonderful pies.

All in all, a great quiet evening at home, enjoying some good grub.







Roasted corn & bacon "creamed" with an acorn squash puree.

Yukon gold puree.  Turkey gravy with wild chanterelle mushroom & thyme.

"Special Stuffing" 

Black truffled turkey breast, barded with bacon.

Sweet Potato Pie

Pumpkin Pie


That's it for now...till we exchange a few words again...Peace!

  4. Everything looks good and I sort of envy the smaller get together. I had to travel an hour with turkey, mashed, salad and pie. And no one was ready to eat, so my food was getting dried out. Your wife did a beautiful job setting a nice table. And, the turkey breast looks amazing.

  10. Each dish looks just as good as the other. Creamed corn - and that turkey! I should show the shot to French hubby since he refuses to eat turkey or any traditional trimmings at Xmas - so this will surely inspire him to change his mind in time for our Xmas celebrations. What a fabulous team - a lot to be said of being quiet and chilling out, especially when you're working so hard! Cheers and thanks for sharing the beautiful table with us. Wish I could draw up a chair :-)

  15. What a beautiful table, Laz! It's clear how much work you put into presentation when I see how beautiful your dishes and your table are (although it looks effortless). I'm not a huge fan of turkey, but your black-truffled turkey breast with bacon - oh, my. Your MIL's pies are gorgeous - I love what she did with the crust. (Almost) too beautiful to eat!

    I'm gad you had a great Thanksgiving! Happy holidays, Laz!
