Our Guests brought some delicious homemade additions to the menu: Adele's Chocolate Pizza, Dorthea's Sweet Potato Pie, Victoria's Pumpkin Mochi, Cristela's Roasted Squash & cranberry chutney with bacon.
At the end of the night I always wish I had taken more pictures, but this year I at least took a good number while preparing the meal in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. Click through to the photo album for more details of the fun and delicious evening.
