Thanksgiving Feast

The Beanpole and I spent a lovely Thanksgiving holiday here in the city. We'd been planning to for months and were looking quite forward to a relaxing day of football, food, and friends. And oh, was there food. I can't take credit for the majority of the dishes, but will be posting some recipes soon in the next ingredient challenge post. It's never just a party with this crowd and as expected there was plenty of food to feed the six of us and even enough to make leftover care packages!

Hors d'Ouevres
Cherry Tomatoes on Crackers with goat cheese
Stuffed Olives
Bread with herbed olive oil for dipping
Prosciutto wrapped pears with boursin and arugula
Barbecue Ribs (regular and baby-back)
Deep-fried turkey
Sweet Potato Bake
Apple Stuffing
Green Bean Casserole with plain fried onions
Green Bean Casserole with cheddar fried onions
Butternut Squash Cranberry Bake with Almonds
Cranberry Relish
Apple Cookies
Roasted pears in Marsala
Apple Pie Empanadas
Pear and Cranberry Empanadas
Copious amounts of wine, including several reds, a sparkling white, and a pumpkin wine that shall never be spoken of again.
