D. and two of his aunts recently took over the family restaurant, Grumpy’s, so it was decided we would make use of the space for our Thanksgiving dinner. On the menu? A bib lettuce salad with goat cheese, spiced nuts and a new and amazing dressing that Aunt Jennifer (the Grumpy’s chef) concocted. Along with that was turkey (of course!), scalloped potatoes, roasted root veggies with a beurre blanc, two stuffings (one sweet and one savory), along with ham, cranberry sauce, several pies, and everything else you would expect.


The space was perfect for preparing, cooking, and hosting this favorite holiday of mine. Family and friends all took part in one way or another… if only by bringing wine or hors d’oeuvres to share. I hope all of you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving!
