Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and ate far too much. . . I did. We went down to Dallas to see our good friends, the Pratts. They graciously hosted the largest Thanksgiving dinner I've ever seen. . . friends, family, cousins, neighbors, colleagues, probably 40 people or more! They've been renovating a beautiful, old, craft-style house and have done a magnificent job getting it ready for this weekend. I think they've been burning some midnight oil to get it done. After that big event, we were able to relax and visit and enjoy the holiday weekend. We even helped put up their 11 foot Christmas tree. . .


Saturday, Annie and I went and had pedicures, which is always a treat, and then stopped for chocolate here as an additional treat. . . talk about being pampered!

That night, we all went for dinner to Tillman's Roadhouse, an amazing restaurant with a hip take on traditional roadhouse fare. . .

And after a memorable and delicious meal (I had chicken fried hanger steak with buttermilk mashed potatoes and charred poblano gravy), we roasted home-made marshmallows on a little portable flame and ate them on home-made cinnamon graham crackers. These Table Side S'mores were To Die For and just eclipsed Chinook's Blackberry Cobbler as my favorite eating-out dessert in America. . .

Ummm - that sounds so good I may just have to take a trip to Texas. Sounds like a great trip. Did Lucy travel well?
