This is probably the best photo I’ve ever taken. Last year we invited over for Thanksgiving dinner some of the friends we’ve made through our English as a Second Language class. Joanna and I provided the turkey, mashed potatoes, corn bread, butter beans, and a couple bottles of wine; they brought the dumplings, seaweed wraps, ceviche, and shrimp fried rice. I love that this photo managed to capture all fourteen of our guests (plus the top of Jo’s head at the bottom of the frame), and I still enjoy looking at the expressions on their faces.
We’re still not sure exactly how many we’ll have tomorrow. At least thirteen, maybe as many as seventeen. The pumpkin pies (my first) just came out of the oven and look and smell like they’re supposed to. Awesome.
