Thanksgiving Week in Photos

This is a recipe-free post (except for a few links to recipes) filled with pictures of my Thanksgiving weekend in Iowa. The first few photos are from Thanksgiving day, and the rest are from a few days hanging out on our farm. Cooking posts should be up shortly. Enjoy!


As my cousin Nora so eloquently put it, Happy (belated) Thanksgiving, Buttheads.


Liz & Kyle.


The upright bonfire.


Here are a few gravy-making women I may resemble, a.k.a. my aunts.


Caryn and Mom.


Dad and me.


Grandparents.


DINNER. I highly recommend the Brussels Sprout Slaw in the foreground and the Savory Bread Pudding just above and to the right of the slaw.


Post feasting we headed back to the farm and did a lot of walking around. Lest you get the wrong impression, Caryn does not typically dress in all purple, nor does she wear giant BHS tennis sweatshirts.


A walk in the woods. Just like the book. No bears, though.


Oops. I spoke too soon. There was a bear in the woods, and Caryn kissed it.


Bobby unintentionally blending into the background.


Holy tree roots!


B & K from above.


Moi.



Bobby in the cougar den.


Brothers & me.


Mouse friend who narrowly escaped capture.


Dad and brothers.


I thought my dad was taking a picture of me eating the moon. I was wrong.


Family shot on hike #2.


Tall prairie grass.


Kyle and Squinty.
