Thanksgiving Bonanza!

Check out this handsome brigade: (L to R) Konrad, Shaun, Denzil, and my brother Tarek. It's not creepy that I said my brother's handsome, it's vain because we look alike.

Squash croquettes. "You could drop those on the floor and I'd still eat them." "They're kinda lopsided. Nice ball handling skills, boys." I love working with a bunch of guys.

The giant pork roast, filled with sweet Mediterranean stuffing. "Is it done yet?" "I don't know." "That's blood!" "No it's not!"

 After cooking shenanigans, getting to hang out with friends and family, and enjoying all the food we worked so hard on, the next best thing about Thanksgiving was getting to make the high-pitched "ahhhhhhhhh!" angel noise when Tarek opened the fridge to check out the well-organized leftovers (thanks Mom!).

It was a great day of cooking with fun people, and then getting to chow down on everything we made. Really, I couldn’t ask for more. It was such a good time that I’m already starting to plan recipes for Christmas…

A few more veggie recipes to come soon.

Eat well!
