Thanksgiving Dinner

I was making plans to celebrate Thanksgiving Dinner for about two weeks. I must have wasted at least a notepad writing the menu and tearing it off. I planned to prepare so many items for Diwali, but I couldn't do any big way because of my neck pain. So Diwali plan ended with an ultra low profile climax. So I wanted to make the Thanksgiving Dinner a success. I was crazily shopping wherever I go, from Mexican to Indian without knowing what Cuisine I would Choose. Finally, I fixed myself on preparing Italian. Wondering the quantity of my shopping, my friend asked me about the number of people I had invited. She could not resist laughing when I replied her that it was just for my family.

Our Thanksgiving menu is without the traditional Turkey. Two weeks back MR.B told me that he left eating Non-Veg . I was surprised because he likes to eat non-veg whenever we go to restaurants/Friend's place as we don't cook at home. I am not sure what made him to decide. But I am proud of him as he did that for a good cause. If you have some time, Please read the post and see the video in the following link.

My menu was as follows

Apple pie and Garlic Bread were readymade and they needed just baking. Thanks to my sister who helped me in chores and Mr.B who took care of my kids. Here are some of the pictures I took that day.
