We are taking a group of ten of us to a restaurant as well. Not up to doing it all here this year. One of favorite haunts is doing Thanksgiving for the first time this year at $15 per head. It is extra for drinks and though they don't have BYO they are getting a wine that we requested, not of their list. Hope it all works out.

Hope you all have a very nice day yourselves.

I'm spending the day and weekend at the Lake House in Northern California. I'm planning to cook a small turkey breast and make some of my mom's traditional sides. There are just 3 of us, and one is a vegetarian!! So we'll go mainly with veggies, potatoes, mushroom/wild rice dressing, cranberries w/apples/orange & walnuts, and pumpkin pie (from Trader Joes). Haven't selected the wines yet.

I hope you are all healthy and enjoying a happy Thanksgiving with family or friends.

Jackie

We took eleven family members including us to a local restaurant and enjoyed a fabulous meal of turkey and fixings. It was delicious. They charged $15 per plate and included non-alcoholic drinks and dessert. They did not have Red Zin on their wine list, but we asked them to get a couple of bottles as we couldn't bring our own. They came up with Gnarl Head Old Vine Zin for which they charged $19.95 per bottle. A check on the internet should a retail price of $12.95 so I think we go a pretty good price for a pretty good wine. Considering all the headache this saved us, I can't complain. A good time was had by all. Incidentally, we only had four wine drinkers!

I know this is late, but pulled a large traditional dinner together with a 22 pounder. Nicely done with just the small family and just woke up from food coma.

bottle of bollinger accompanied the evening.

Back and brought a few(?) extra pounds back with me. Gorgeous weather and the Sea of Cortez was stunning. Posted a few picture on my Facebook page . Saw the strangest bird I've ever laid an eye on. Was a juvenile but had BLUE(!) feet. Posted it also. Hope all had a great holiday. WW
