thanksgiving.

We did Thanksgiving as low-key as possible this year; one trip to the grocery store, one dessert made the day before, and a couple hours of preparation the day of. There were only six of us, and we vowed to keep it as simple as possible.

My family has never done traditional Thanksgiving food; there aren't any casseroles and this year, not even a pie. We try to use the same vegetables and colors, but do it our own way.

A few of my favorites were the sage dressing, garlic and rosemary mashed potatoes (the way I learned at The Mill), and spaghetti squash gratin. The tart cranberry sauce goes without saying - I make it consistently throughout cranberry season.

Though I honestly think with the background of the water and the gentle sea breeze blowing in the screened door, anything would taste good.
