Let them eat pie!

We had a lovely Thanksgiving! We were lazy bums in the morning, starting on the cooking and playing with Noam. Avi and I ventured out to the gym, did some last minute grocery shopping, and we even played out on the grass with Noam for a bit.

As dinner crept closer, I pulled out the Turkey Day decorations and we set the table with the finest: china and silver and then, it was time to feast!
The Benjamin cousins popped in for a little visit and of course we seized the chance to get a Benjamin/O'Glasser family picture. Yona, Shoshana, and Aunt Lisa hadn't met Noam until this trip and are soaking up their time with the little goober.
After the family departed, it was really time to feast. And feast we did. We had such a lovely spread. vegetable stew with chickpeas, sweet potato fluff, bourbon maple sweet potatoes with mini-marshmallows, corn bread stuffing, balsamic mushrooms, and cranberry sauce. 
 Everything was just delicious and it was so fun to watch Noam digging in. Last Thanksgiving his menu consisted on a few ounces of milk, this year, he was keeping up with the rest of us! Of course, best laid plans to eat only a small amount were thrown out the window, but heck, it's a feast!
 But, of course, no matter how full you are, there is always room for pie! I used a new GF pie crust this year and it was so much better! I think it's the best pumpkin pie I've made, ever! The whipped cream, just added to it's yumminess!
Noam sure did love his pie! And Mr. Sophisticated ate it with a silver spoon! We actually think he had more pie than regular dinner! 
It really was a perfect Thanksgiving. A day full of family, relaxation, and super good food!

Wonderful ! I love it, when the family comes together and we have fun. But we have it in Christmas time in December.
Have a nice weekend.

Looks like a wonderful feast! Glad your pumpkin pie turned out. We actually overdid on our feast, and ate so late, that there wasn’t any room for the pecan or pumpkin pies we made. (I’m planning on eating some first today so I don’t miss out.) :-)

Ohmygoodness! I love that series of Noam and The Pie! I mean, it should be capitalized because it's a little story on it's own! :)
