Happy Thanksgiving!

 We celebrated Thanksgiving a bit early on Wednesday this year. And because I love Christmas so much, we made it an early Christmas dinner as well and invited our friend over to celebrate with us since he won't be in Melbourne for the holidays. Here are a few pics from our yummy feast!

Our table all set up and looking pretty!

One of our first courses: roasted pears stuffed with goats cheese, wrapped in prosciutto and served with a rocket and toasted walnut salad with a lemon honey dressing

We don't have turkeys out in the supermarkets yet here in Oz, so we settled on a 2.2 kilo free range chicken instead! Stuffed with lemon, thyme and rosemary.. yum!

And for dessert: a platter with sea salt caramels, my Nana's Christmas honey cakes, and chocolate chip cookies. All washed down with some homemade boozy eggnog! (recipe posted in the coming days).

I'm thankful for my wonderful husband and for my family and friends near and far. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it!), and don't go too crazy with those Black Friday deals ;)
