Table set up

This year we have Hoa's siblings and nieces from France and Boston coming to stay with us before attending Kevin & Kristie's wedding.

Thanksgiving dinner is an American tradition and this will be the first for them to experience what is a Thanksgiving dinner.

We are also are having Alice and Mark together with Cheryl and Cubbie that drove all the way from Los Angeles to jopin us for dinner.

This cupboard is located in the hallway just at the entrance of our house and I always decorated according to each season and event.

Here is the decorated cupboard with the fall theme.


Colorful pumpkins are brought out for the occasion

Buffet Set up

Setting up the the Buffet station for all the side dishes. 


It is set up and now all I need to do is to reheat all the dishes and fill up the serving plates.


While waiting for our guests we are taking a group picture.

Starter and Soup

Starter: on the left is a crab salad on Endive, and a truffle oil infused egg custard.

This not a traditional Thanksgiving dinner but I wanted something light and yummy to start our meal.


Next is a butternut squash soup with crouton and whipped cream.


This is a very flavorful soup and everyone seems to enjoy it.
