Let the Festivities Begin

The first non-work holiday event kicked off today and, if this is the trend, I am going to have to shed quite a few pounds in the new year.

A complete old-fashioned turkey feast with mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, carrots/yams and salad. 

But the most interesting accompaniment was the carrots/yams. This was a delicious combo of cooked carrots and yams, green onions added to the mix before mashing, then mashed with milk and butter just like you would for mashed potatoes. The combination of flavours was amazing. I will sure try this before the end of the year.

And as if two servings of turkey and all was not enough, a dessert spread showed up at the end of the nigh including:

- mocha mousse cake

- chocolate lemon cake
- home made date squares
- and an Anita cranberry, chocolate and walnuts cake.

Thank you Alice and Laura!
