What was on your Thanksgiving table?
A great pleasure in my life is serving food from the garden to friends and family. On this year's Thanksgiving table were my home grown:
lettuce and arugula
Swiss chard and kale
Tomatoes-fresh (still ripening up) and dried-in the salad
Pumpkin-in pie, bread
Herbs (bay, basil, sage, chives)
Raspberries (frozen) in pie
Figs - in pumpkin bread
Pickled beets, pickles
We had too much food, so I have not yet made the Paw Paw cream pie (wild-gathered by a kind friend, not home grown). I will save that experiment for the Christmas holiday!
I did not have enough white potatoes, apples, or peaches to make deserts, so will have to plan accordingly next year!
