motley crew thanksgiving

i could have never imagined a turkey dinner would stir such intense and equally felt enthusiasm amongst such a motley crew! but, the smell of turkey sparks memories and feelings a foreigner could easily forget they had. it was definitely a pavlov's response kind of evening - all of us salivating and exuberantly expressing our excitement! when we had dished up our plates and were eating together in katie's livingroom, you could have heard a pin drop! then the "ooohhhh-ing" and "aaaahhhhh-ing" started! we kept going back for more....turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, homemade mac 'n cheese, spinach salad with mandarin oranges, fruit cocktail salad with whipped cream, kale with cranberries and pinenuts, craig's pumpkin curry from scratch....amazing....amazing....amazing. and cheesecake for dessert. i will have dreams about that meal for weeks to come.
