Thanksgiving 2011: Sam’s First Thanksgiving

It was a quiet night at Sour Cherry Farm. We roasted a turkey, made some mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce and ate a simple dinner in front of the television. Sam had milk and rested in her bassinet.

Earlier in the afternoon, Grammy and Leighlo stopped by on their way to Les Gilberts:

We also had a nice visit to Rockland Lake. All the day’s festivities, after the jump.

We started with a nice brisk walk around the lake. Sam’s first time!

She was bundled up nice and warm.

When we got home, we started the turkey brining. It was a lovely 9-pounder from Stone Barns. A Bourbon Red.

After Grammy and Leighlo left, we put the turkey in the oven:

Less than two hours later, voila:

Meantime, Sam tried out her swing:

And mashed potatoes:


And the sweet potato casserole I made a little at at time over a few days:

We are very thankful.
