Fine dining

Finally! Photos from Thanksgiving.

Unable to finesse turkey preparation for another year, I landed the job of cooking. Rada helped at several stages: folding napkins, setting the table, and preparing the meal cart in Ritz dining-room style.


Not sure where she picked this up (since my idea of haute cuisine is S&S deli) but she posed as elegant waiter, complete with white shirt and apron.

While waiting for the turkey to cook, we visited the park down the street. I furtively looked in direction of my house every ten minutes, convinced that an un-monitored turkey would surely erupt in flames (even though placed in deep dish in middle of oven).

An extended family was there trying to work off their earlier meal, and I was invited to a pick-up game of touch football with them. The grandmother sat by watching, and Rada played with the younger kids.

Its nice to think about that day during this snowy rainy slushy darkness of mid-December.

    I like Rada’s tie. It really completes the fancy waiter outfit.
