Thanksgiving at Hidden Villa Farm

Personal

I have no doubt that I was in good company yesterday: absolutely stuffed!

I went to Hidden Villa Farm with Coye and Julie to spend Thanksgiving with Andrew, Julia, Becca, and Lorena.

We had a fabulous evening of fantastic food, frisbeeing, farm animals, and conversation (sorry, just couldn’t keep the alliteration going).

Here’s a taste of yesterday!











With the amount of food we brought, you’d think we were feeding an army. I’ll just try to list the made-from-scratch dishes we had for seven people: brie/blue cheese and crackers, deviled eggs, spinach artichoke dip, turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, green beans with lemon vinaigrette and parmesan breadcrumbs, sweet potato shuffle, salted baked kale, sloppy janes, cauliflower with brown butter, pears, sage, and hazelnuts, and spiced apple cider. And that was only dinner. Somehow we managed to collect 5 different desserts: apple cranberry pie, chocolate chess pie, fudge covered brownies, butternut squash pie and some delicious pumpkin pie with ginger crust and a meringue topping (that took 9 eggs and almost ruined Thanksgiving).





Hope your Thanksgiving was as tasty and delicious as mine!

“Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.”

The summer? Bah! That was nothing compared to what’s coming this fall. Hold on to your hats because there is a world of Lindsay Docherty Photography coming at you over the next few months. My mind is spinning and it’s hardly begun yet. This is my last totally wedding/engagement session - free weekend til December (yes, December!) so I’m taking a wee trip. I’ll be incommunicado til Wednesday because I’ll be paddling down the Delaware River for the next few days. “My, Lindsay, I had no idea you kayaked,” you say. Well, that’s because I haven’t. It will certainly be an adventure and will likely hurt. But I’m one tough cookie. I am und ...
