before, during, after

This Thanksgiving was the first one that M. and I have shared together at our own home since we're usually on the road; (Friday we traveled to visit family). We used a toaster oven, a borrowed hotplate, and the grill to make mushroom risotto stuffed in delicata squash, fresh green beans, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin muffins. It all turned out quite tasty even without the egg that I somehow forgot to put into the muffin batter. Then for the table bouquet I gathered whatever could be found in the wintering garden and put them inside a Dad-made mug.

How was your Thanksgiving?
