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!

We chatted and agreed to meet at Tinto one year ago to ...

Nesting Urges
I don't know what has gotten into me lately but I have this inexplicable lust for more space, a new bed, big windows, fresh flowers in every room, white washed kitchens, wood furniture with chipped paint, gauzy curtains, and lots of sunshine. My trip to Ikea yesterday probably didn't help matters. And I love Pottery Barn but I really wish they wouldn't cram so much stuff into their pictures.I'll order all of the following, please:My kitchens (that's right, I'll have several)Bedrooms(Note the canopy bed. I saw this pic in the book The Comforts of Home by Atlanta Bartlett and I've been obsessed with this bedroom ever since! The bed, white w ...
