  9. Happy Thanksgiving Christine to you and your family. Your menu sounds divine!

  10. Hi Christine,
    I hope your day was as wonderful as your dinner sounded!

    Ours turned out very nicely. I cooked my best turkey yet! I never thought to cook rice, and we are huge rice eaters, maybe that's why?

    I have to work this morning! It ought to be interesting :).

  11. I didn't quite make it around to any blogs yesterday, so happy Thanksgiving today.

  12. How delicious!!! I hope you had a wonderful dinner and Holiday Christine =)

  13. I'm a day late, sorry. I hope you had a fabulous and Happy Thanksgiving! Your menu is glorious. I, too, am thankful for all the special friends I've made online over the past few years and am glad to add you!

  14. Thanks for all of your lovely Thanksgiving greetings! I hope all of you had a wonderful day, too. I had hopped to visit all of your blogs yesterday, but once I sat down at the end of the evening, I was too sleepy!

    We had a really nice day and a delicious meal. I ended up not making the Carmelized Pearl Onions because I ran out of time and they were a pain in the you-know-what to peel. I'll make them over the weekend and maybe serve them with steak and those brussels sprouts I still have. Everything else was homemade from scratch, except the Coconut Custard Pie that I bought at the last minute for my husband since he doesn't particularly care for pumpkin or apple pies. I had a lot of fun cooking all that food! Almost as much fun as eating it all! :)

    By the way, if you've got leftover turkey in your fridge and you're looking for a new way to serve it up, I just posted a recipe for Turkey Quesadillas with Brie and Cranberry Sauce. I had it for lunch today. Yum!
