This week was a whirlwind. I spent last weekend in Santa Monica at the International Food Blogger Conference with 200 other amazing bloggers listening and learning, talking, tweeting and typing. It was great to see some friends from Camp Blogaway and meet so many amazing new people.

My Adorable Baby Niece (who recently turned 4) and her family arrive today and I’m so excited for their first visit to San Diego! My niece was disappointed that they didn’t get beet greens in their CSA this week and asked if I would cook some for her this weekend. Who could turn down that request?

We didn’t get beet greens this week, either, but we’re making an extra market run tomorrow where I know we’ll find some nice fresh ones. Our share is decidedly in the Thanksgiving spirit!

The pumpkin is a pie pumpkin. Red frill is a type of mustard green.

We’re hosting Thanksgiving this year – my first time as host, our first year in our house – and my mom and 4 friends are coming, too. My sister-in-law has a dairy allergy, I’m a vegetarian, and the boys want some kind of meat. We’re still in negotiations, but my menu ideas include:

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? Do you have a traditional menu or not?

Having overdosed on turkey leftovers early in our marriage, what with always getting the huge carcass after both Thanksgiving and Christmas eve dinners, and then having to eat them until at least JUNE!!!, I was so happy when my mother-in-law told me she didn’t want turkey anymore!! That was when we switched to leg of lamb, or salmon, depending on who was coming for dinner. My favorite part to EAT, other than the rum pumpkin pie ( no evaporated milk, just regular) has to be the fresh cranberry orange relish. Yum. But the best part is the company.
