Friends Thanksgiving Year 20

We gather on the Saturday before Thanksgiving and recall the many years we've spent together as friends. We feast on mostly vegetarian fare in honor of those among us who don't eat turkey, and every year the wine gets a little better, the roaring fire a little more comforting, and our bonds a little stronger. Every year I am more and more grateful for those bonds of friendship.

This year our menu was slightly eclectic. My contribution was the wild rice blini (see photo). Get the recipe here.
