(image mine: burlington vermont)

i am laying low, moving slow, having a few family members & friends for thanksgiving dinner and planning on sipping wine, engaging in relaxing conversation surrounded by football sounds.

and i went off the grid a bit this year , creating classic dishes with an innovative edge, this friendsgiving post prompted me to want to get just a little bit more creative this thanksgiving... i'm making the twice baked root vegetable mash, let you know how it comes out!

hey! enjoy your day friends!
