It's a special day



Happy Thanksgiving my dear Friends




My friends have accused me of celebrating my birthday a month before and still a month after my birthday.  

A few (not my friends) have asked if my birthday always falls on 
Thanksgiving Day.  No, Thanksgiving is always on a Thursday. 






I'm fixing our favorite Thanksgiving Day Meal 

Duck a L'Orange. 


Served with mashed potatoes and gravy, sage dressing, cranberry sauce, caramelized sweet potatoes,   and "cabbages in disguise" also known as Brussels sprouts. 



And for dessert? Home made Pear Pie.


Happy Thanksgiving,
dear Friends. 
Wishing you a most special day. 

Gina

    1. Dear Rosemary, The Duck was delicious. I wonder if our ducks, that live on our pond, realize how lucky they are.

  3. Dear Gina,
    your delicious meal has everything I enjoy on my plate as well. We used to prepare a duck rather than a turkey for Thanksgiving, but at our friend's home, where we have spent the holiday in the last couple of years, a huge turkey makes for a traditional table and is also tasty. I hope you had a wonderful day celebrating your special B-day with a glass of Champagne. I certainly had one...........
    Very best wishes and hugs from Texas, Sieglinde

    1. Dear Sieglinde,
      Yes, I celebrated my Birthday in style. I drank the entire bottle of champagne all by myself. It was a beautiful day, inside and out. The rooms were filled with delicate white roses and the fires were blazing in every fireplaces. We talked of Christmas plans and plans already made for a trip to Portugal in the Spring. And, we had leftovers. More delicious than the day before.
