A Thanksgiving Feast

To help set the mood, this is what greeted our guests at the front door. But no, we didn't make our guests dress up as pilgrims:

I enjoy entertaining as it is an opportunity to use these beautiful pottery plates that David bought from a vendor at the Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival back in the early 80s:

He purchased a setting for eight people but there have been a few breakages along the way which is why there are no plates laid out in advance at David's and my seats (note to self, must buy sympathetic supplementary plates before my family descends at Christmas):

Let the feasting begin:

Pumpkin pie and Texas Corn Bread recipes can be found on Our Family Favourites.

What is that dish on the bottom of the last people page - looks like a vanilla pudding with apples... (Probably a baked custard of some sort...)

The dish that Calico Cat is referring to is an ambrosia/jello salad. The bottom layer is raspberry jello with pitted cherries. The top layer includes pineapple, marshmallows, cream cheese, mayonnaise, lemon jello and pecans. It's not exactly traditional Thanksgiving fare but reminds me of the pot luck meals that I attended as an exchange student in Washington State in 1983.
