I’m a little behind on our blog updates, mostly because I haven’t spent as much time in my office or at my home computer(s) as I used to. Of course, everyone knows the reason for that and I’m sure they’re just fine with it. 😉
So I’m trying to get back up to speed as quickly as possible and I’m starting with our Thanksgiving update.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and the 2008 edition absolutely did not disappoint! The festivities actually started quite a bit early as Chris decided it was time for a new tradition, the Thanksgiving Throwdown / Iron Chef (a tribute to Bobby Flay’s Food Network shows). This year, the target of the Throwdown / Iron Chef competition was… cranberries! So Chris and Mel set out to one up each other with cranberry recipes. Trash talking started early and never relented; the stage was set. In the end there could be only one victor and Chris won the day with his very impressive Cranberry Salsa.
After the judges rendered their decision and we ate all of the evidence, it was time to head to our second Thanksgiving stop of the day. As usual, our second stop turned out to be quite a bit more subdued than our first as we spent the rest of the day relaxing, talking and hanging out with family… while they all hung out with Bree. 😉
As always, all of the pictures in the gallery below are on our private Flickr feed. If you would like access to the pictures, with the ability to get them in digital or print format, check out my previous post with instructions on how to get access.
