On Thanksgiving

Can I be perfectly honest? This Thanksgiving was both weird and wonderful. Weird because I wasn't with family like I have been for every other Thanksgiving of my life (save one where I had mono in Boston), but wonderful because I was with two of the most wonderful people a person could ever possibly have in their life.

Additionally, the three of us managed to concoct such a beautiful meal. We spent all day from 10am - 6pm doing so, in Mary's comfy and aesthetically pleasing Charlottesville apartment. It was pretty much what I imagine an adult Thanksgiving to be. We lounged, we sipped scotch, we baked, we cooked, we talked and eventually we ate ourselves silly.

Here's a quick rundown of the menu:
Fiery Sweet Potatoes with curry and coconut milk
Quinoa salad with radishes, pumpkin seeds, dried blueberries and pear
Mashed Potatoes
Green Beans
Corn with mint
Lemon Meringue Pie
Blueberry/Blackberry pie

It was a feast! So much food is such a good reminder of the plenty that exists in my life. I am indeed thankful.

I mean, what more could I ask for? I'm the most thankful guy on the planet and I've got the pictures to prove it.
