Thanksgiving on the Deck

Yesterday was Thanksgiving at our house. Our Chinese daughter-in-law had requested a traditional American home cooked dinner for her family who had never had one before. She requested Thanksgiving. And so it was. 

Turkey gets moved from the smoker to the grill for its final roasting.

Lookin' good.

And good it was, bringing smiles to our new friends' faces.
They even returned for seconds on turkey (which they don't have in China).
Dean and I loved being able to have Thanksgiving dinner on the deck.
November temperatures will not allow that indulgence.

It was traditional: turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes and roasted veggies. 
I didn't take a picture of the pecan pie but on my own behalf, let me say, I nailed it. 
The entire meal was a worthy representation of American home cooking.
On her behalf, daughter-in-law prepared two amazing Chinese home cooked meals
for us on Saturday. We ate internationally and really well!
