Thanksgiving went off without a hitch-- 12 of us.
I already mentioned what I made, but I think I was most proud of my smooth gravy!
Sunny California Thanksgiving.
I felt bad that everyone came out on one of the coldest weekends in SD in a long time! (But it was still 40-50 degrees warmer than Chicago, and sunny)
Thanksgiving was spent relaxing with family. We played games into the night, ate way to much and chatted--just what a holiday should be!
then it was off to the harbor!

Friday included Petersons Donuts, San Diego Zoo, and a sunset harbor cruise.
It was a beautiful day, and I felt like I discovered this city all over again through the eyes of my family.
For dinner, I made E's favorite--Pasta Carbonara (it's a crowd pleaser!), and all 8 of us crammed around our tiny table with a mish-mash of desk, table, & camp chairs.
