This year has really flown by and although it was full of many exciting things, I can’t believe that it is nearly gone – swish! – and the Christmas lights are coming on all around the neighborhood.
Still, I am all about being thankful for everything that has come to pass and what is still being planned, for another four seasons of health, friends, and family.
And there is no better way to celebrate that than with food and drink around a big table. Everyone has their favorite dishes to contribute and while I would advise against cooking anything that you’ve never really made before, if you are well-prepared and have done all of your planning in advance, you’ll enjoy a stress-free meal.
(as you can see, I’ve been busy planning the table settings!)
Here are some ideas:
In the middle:
Apricot almond tart (* you can substitute plums this season, which also bake into soft and pillowy filling)
I am still making my shopping list and triple-checking it before I head to Stone Barns on Tuesday to pick up our turkey!
