November’s blog circle theme was Scenes From the Kitchen, which is very timely for my family with a few birthdays as well as Thanksgiving.
My oldest daughter baked her brother’s birthday cake early in the month.
The next photo doesn’t look very kitchen-y but we are in the kitchen and it’s one of my favorite photos from November. Caroline hasn’t wanted me to photograph her lately, so this is a good compromise, especially since it shows an awesome new book we just got.
One cold morning the steam from Robert’s bowl of scrambled eggs caught my eye. It’s hard to capture steam with the camera! I brought two versions of this photo into Photoshop and merged them together so I’d have more steam in the picture!
In addition to making my husband breakfast, I also make him lunches like this one, which had a particularly yummy chicken salad sandwich. So yummy, it had to be photographed!
I make our Thanksgiving feast following mostly the same plans I have used for 5 years now. One of my favorite appetizers is Eggplant Caviar. Not really caviar, it’s a dip that I’ve also used in lasagna. See Caroline’s Lasagna.
Here’s the finished Eggplant Caviar cooling.
I just love garlic.
And Three Bean Salad. Mmmmm . . .
Last but not least (I took fewer photos as I got further into cooking the Thanksgiving feast), here is my beautiful homemade cranberry sauce.
Thanks for looking at my pictures. Now continue on the blog circle to see scenes from Nadeen’s kitchen.
