Thanksgiving 2013

Dining date: 11/28/13

The Thanksgiving post has become a sort of tradition on my blog – this is the fifth annual post. As has been the case over the last few years, Thanksgiving is a tale of two meals. Lunch is a casual buffet-style affair at my aunt & uncle’s (mom’s side) while dinner is a sitdown meal at my grandmother’s (dad’s side).

Wines have always been plentiful, but I’ve led a push for more craft beers in recent years. It’s been met with mixed-to-negative reactions. I keep trying though.

With the conclusion of lunch, we cross the Bay Bridge to my grandmother’s.

A little bit of red wine to pair with the beef.

With that, another Thanksgiving is over. The food remains fairly consistent from year to year, something that’s become very comfortable and homey and what I look forward to when I come home each Thanksgiving.
