We all have a lot to be thankful for. Today I'm focusing on food. There is beauty in everything.

This year we went with the stereotypical Thanskgiving Dinner. Turkey and pumpking pie!
Here's two turkey breasts. I don't like to do the whole turkey thing. This goes way faster.
Instead of mashed potatoes, we made a velvety butternut squash dish. As it says in the cook book, it's silky and sublime. I've made it twice so far, and will make it again and again, in the future. So good! The recipe for this dish is in the book "Well Fed" by Melissa Joulwan.
We also had some green asparagus.
We made this huge dinner on purpose, so we could freeze some portions of everything for later.
I screwed up the pie. I've only made it once before. I forgot to add the maple syrup in the pumpkin mixture. The crust is gluten free, made with almond flour.
It was a real mess getting it out of the glass pan. Since there was no surgar in it, we just poured some maple syrup on top of it. Let me tell you, it looks awful on the plate, but it tasted so unbelievable good. I'd like to have another piece of it right now, or ten. But it's all gone. :o(
I hope all my Canadian friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving too!
