It's always hard to be apart from family during significant celebrations. This time last year we were with Jane's family for Thanksgiving, but this year we were home in Ireland. Although Thanksgiving Day was on Thursday we waited until Friday to celebrate - and Jane did an excellent job cooking up a delicious feast: a golden turkey, garlic butter green beans, caramelized carrots, sweet potato and pecan mash, homemade cranberry sauce, hot rolls fresh from the oven, and of course pumpkin pie.
I made the gravy.
Here's a photo of us getting ready to tuck in!
