Thanksgiving Weekend!

Autumn is here.

The pumpkin will be kept in the house until Halloween.
Do you remember squirrels snacked last year?  (link is here) :D :D

During the past long weekend, our brodder helped mom

Guess what the unique ingredient was?
Tofu (bean curd)!!!

Mom bought a ready-made pie crust to 'save' time!

'Not bad, mommy~!'

The pie needed to cooled down.

All humans enjoyed preparing dinner together.
Hey, where are our aprons??  We can give you paws, too.

Still daddy is the chef! 

Our brodder was proud to help out daddy.

Then we got a chance to sample stuffing!


Here's the menu this year. 

Steamed squash & Brussel Sprouts,
Pumpkin Pie,
Very Garlicky Roasted Potatoes,
Lobster tails,
Crab meat stuffed Tilapias,
Leeks, Broccoli & Cauliflower Caserole, 
Lots of stuffing!
Home made cranberry sauce and fat-free gravy.

Our dinner was ready.

Gravy = yum!

And dessert time~!
