Thanksgiving Abroad

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving. We had a great time and I have the pictures to prove it. We started our day by heading out to breakfast. Oh yes, you heard me right on that one. We just had to go out for some pancakes and eggs by the ocean. Oh I should mention we also had no power in the house and so we didn't want to open the fridge ir anything.

Well, we may have gotten carried away. Good news, I did not finish my food from either of my plates shown below. Ryan and I were at Make Me Nuts (like Dunkin's).

This donut was filled with apple and cinnamon and was delicious, but I only ate a couple bites.

Also ordered some pancakes and eggs, hold the side of meat!
This is what happens when you order sausage with yours. You get a hot dog!!!
Then we went to the furniture and electronics department store. I could not resist taking pictures of the awesome kitchen displays. I would die to have any one of these kitchens.











Then we went home and fired up our new gas heater. Finally some warmth.
Once we had the fire going it was time to get to the cooking for our dinner later on in the day.
That's right, we made devlied eggs. It was the first time for me and it was a lot easier than I expected.
We even got this cool syringe like device for filling our eggs.

YUM
Then it was on to the sweet potato casserole.
Mashed them all up...
Looks of good stuff...
Made the topping...
Time to bake it...
and then we were ready to go to the dinner.
Here are some pics of all of the food at the party we went to...



The dessert table...
My Thanksgiving meal...
and Ryan's...
The view from the house we were at and their vineyards...
After some time to digest my dinner I was ready for some dessert...
and mulled wine, AKA grog!
Well, that was it for our Thanksgiving. Believe or not we were there almost 8 hours and it was nearly midnight when we returned home. The guys played poker and the wives sat around and talked. I hope your day was as nice as ours was.

Oh my gosh, those kitchens are outstanding!!!! I want one, please. My kitchen is put to shame by those kitchens. Wow.

I love how you used a syringe for the deviled eggs, very clever! They look great, as does the sweet potato casserole, yum!

I'm glad you had a fantastic day, and meal. My favorite dish was actually random, it was my mom's cranberry horseradish dish! It sounds gross, but boy was it GOOD.

Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. That donut looks to die for!

I would have to say that my favorite food at thanksgiving was the stuffing and all the yummy pumpkin treats.

Although you weren't in Vegas this year, it seems like you had a great time!

The kitchens are AMAZING!!!

My favorite dish was mashed potatoes, stuffing, & gravy all mushed together on my plate. It wasn't pretty, but it was good! :) (And I felt like a little kid doing it...)
