Thanksgiving

Wednesday night we hosted 14 singles for dinner, mostly from our church.  The Mayflower place cards were inspired by Martha. During the meal, everyone took turns asking questions (that I had prepared on the table).  Afterwards, Hubby directed everyone to switch tables so they could get to know others during dessert.   Despite my yawing at 8 o'clock, everyone had a grand time.

Yesterday was a rather lazy day for us, since our family is 2,000 miles away.  Throughout the day Hubby read aloud portions of Thanksgiving: a Time to Remember.  We ate leftovers for dinner - from the feast I'd made the day before.

This morning, I redeemed myself and made bagels.  We ate two a piece. They were oh-so-yummy - despite the expression on Mr. Intensity's face in the picture.  
And, if you're interested in reading our monthly newsletter, Hubby posted it on his blog.

I made bagels once....though they didn't look quite as nice as yours-may try the recipe you posted, because they were really yummy!

wow, I am inspired to make bagels... haven't had one in a long time. There is one place here that sells them almost like in America, but a main bridge is closed down and we cannot get there easily by public now... so I don't go.

Sounds like a fun but tiring Thanksgiving! I am confident those singles appreciated the invite and all the yummy food.
