a very happy thanksgiving!

we had so much to be thankful for this year! we had our very first feast in l.a. and our families came up! my mom showed me some of her magic cooking and was such a sport in my tiny 1930's kitchen.

cinthie worked it out on guitar hero!

some of mamma's delights!

we tried to learn some of her ways in the kitchen.

i did catch eye of a turkey giblet or goiter or bone. i don't know what it was, but it was foul! (and i don't mean in the bird sense.) i don't eat meat anyway and when i saw that, it was done.

other than that, everything was so appetizing! we had so much fun eating on our assortment of chairs in our little living room. we were so grateful that our friends mary and jake spent the holiday with us!

in fact, we ate so much we were sick! the girls decided to do an exercise video after. we were too full to move gracefully, or really at all. but, we laughed so hard we had to have burned some calories!

Mrs. C.,
Please send the portion of meat you don't consume every meal of everyday to my Secretary, Frita. I will pay the postage.
Thank you.
