This year's intimate gathering around the kitchen table for seven of us was yet another special and memorable Thanksgiving holiday. The turkey breast was exceptionally tender but everything on our high-piled plates was darned tasty. Good food, good friends, laughter, and the dreadfully unexpected appearance of a sad pancake...but we feasted well and finished glad that it's only a month until the Christmas Eve Eve repeat of this fine meal.
