Thanksgiving 2016 - Our Way

Anna and I started early - oysters and wine on Tuesday eve at Squid's in Chapel Hill, NC.

On Thanksgiving we shared non-traditional Rock Cornish hens and many side dishes with Oma and Opa and Chris and Prem.  Then Anna and I had our second desserts with our next door neighbors and their family.

On Friday, we left to drive to our beach house on the Outer Banks.  The ocean was calm.

Of course, we had to go to Fishheads - the bar on the fishing pier.  This was their last weekend in operation before closing for the season.  It was packed and VERY happy!

After staining the deck, this is how we relaxed in the evening.

Cooking Class Adventure

Anna got an anniversary present from Myron - a couples' cooking class at Sur La Table. Fourteen couples had a date night learning to cook an Italian meal: gorgonzola-stuffed dates wrapped in prosciutto, pork tenderloin, risotto, and budino (an Italian crème brûlée of maple syrup, brown sugar and egg yolks).  The class was two hours long and the results were delicious!
