Thanksgiving / Christmas Dinner

Before you read this post, you might want to read the post entry below this one first, Then come back here *grin*.

The following pictures are the foods we cooked on Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner at my friend home. Aren't they delicious?! When I told my friend that I'm going to take pictures, she gave me a weird look. Not until I explained to her that I'm going to blog about it, she understood. One thing though, I wish I've pictures of everyone there. My only reason I didn't was because I was too busy with helping out with cooking the foods that I didn't think to take pictures --- just only that "I must take pictures of the foods for my blog", so I thought LOL!
