Happy Thanksgiving from the Burchfield Penney!
Charles Burchfield, November [detail], 1956-61

 

 

Snow in the night and a quiet beautiful fall of snow this morning – all is white, and it seems truly like the old fashioned Thanksgiving Day…Our dinner served buffet style (this is B’s idea and it was fun). We spread all of the stuff out in the kitchen. M had brought frozen fruits for a fruit cup – (boysenberries, red raspberries, grapes, peach and cherries). A fine dinner – chicken, mushroom and giblet dressing, with cranberry sauce, baked ham & lime-apple, pan-browned potatoes, sweet potatoes, salad (lettuce, tomatoes, avocado & pine-apple cream-cheese dressing, olives, onions, celery) – and for desert choice of pumpkin pie, cherry pie & apple sauce cake – candy & nuts, dates & figs. A fine dinner and we enjoyed it to the full.
