An Adams Family Thanksgiving

Today, Brian and I celebrated our first Thanksgiving as a married couple in New York, and the easiest way to describe it is to say that it was distinctly us, from our early morning trek into Manhattan to watch the Macy's Day parade to the simple meal we prepared together in our junior one bedroom apartment in Brooklyn. After a day in the rainy city, it was heartening to return to our home and prepare a comforting repast of maple-dijon glazed cornish game hens stuffed with root vegetables and stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes with pepper gravy, cranberry raspberry sauce and vegan pumpkin pie. And, of course, we washed it all down with our favorite beer, Piraat, while doing the day's New York Times crossword. Will Shortz, welcome to our holiday.
Our first solo Thanksgiving as the Adams was lovely, and although we missed all of our friends and family, we are thankful to have so many wonderful people to miss. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
