Jeff and I spent a quiet Thanksgiving in San Francisco. It was a BEAUTIFUL day in SF...mid 70s...sunny...perfect. Jeff went out in the garden and created an amazing centerpiece for the table. The meal was wonderful, with an herb-filled turkey (rosemary from the garden), Jeff's own stuffing creation (the best item on the table!), must-have green bean casserole, garlic mashed potatoes, and a scrumptious hearty mushroom gravy. Jeff made a pumpkin cheesecake for dessert...and we have a pumpkin pie if that runs low :)
Of course...stories from our families did make us a bit homesick. Big piles of leaves in Virginia, which nephew Benjamin seems to LOVE playing in. A big family gathering in Michigan with the first snow of the season for decoration. We miss everyone, and send out big hugs.
At dusk, we worked off the meal with a walk along the Bay in the brilliant light of the Golden Gate Bridge. The perfect end to the day.
Happy Thanksgiving :)
