Thanksgiving in February? Last November our plans to have a big family Thanksgiving dinner were disrupted by two cases of covid. (Luckily, Len and I hadn’t seen the victims for several weeks, so no exposure to worry about.)
Saturday night was therefore Thanksgiving! Carol was very happy that the turkey that had been waiting for this rescheduled occasion could leave her freezer. She roasted it with stuffing along with a side of roast vegetables like beets, carrots, rutabaga, and sweet potato, and the rest of us brought green salad, quinoa/kale salad, cranberry chutney, and wine.
Specifically, Len and I chose a wine produced by Michael David Winery called “Earthquake” which has a seismic graph stencilled on the bottle. A kind of reminder of current events. It was actually quite a good zinfandel, and went well with the turkey and Thanksgiving-style sides.

Hi Mae, I have been following your blog since I discovered it several months ago. I am a retired social worker and live in Pittsfield Township - Saline schools and have an Ann Arbor mailing address. I don't often comment on blogs. I would be interested to learn what is in the roasted vegetable dish on the Thanksgiving meal you featured. Thank you.
PS I don't have a blog, I am not a AI or machine. Please don't publish my e-mail address.
To MLBOWDEN: I do not have your email address, so no worries about publishing. I think that our host simply oven-roasted a number of different vegetables.
Everything looks so delicious!! The spinach artichoke dip has me drooling.
Better late than never, looks like a delicious Thanksgiving dinner!
Have a great new week!
What a gorgeous feast! Looks like you have some amazing cooks in your family. And that wine looks interesting, too.
How fun to celebrate. It doesn't really matter whether you hit the date or not, as long as you can get together with family and/or friends, does it? And your meal looks yummy. I also like the dishes and how there are 2 opposites. Have a great T day Mae. hugs-Erika
Oh, you made me hungry for Thanksgiving dinner. Looks scrumptious. I am glad you were finally able to get together for Thanksgiving. Happy T Day.
it sounds spooky when you talk about covid and victims. I ended up thinking of vampires for some weird reason :=))
How nice you could finally have your missed Thanksgiving meal. It all looks so delicious and the veggies really caught my eye. The dip looks wonderful, too, as does the tart. You are really making me hungry.
The Earthquake wine is appropriate given what has happened in Syria and Turkey, with another aftershock just yesterday. Thanks so much for sharing your wine (and delicious food) with us for T this Tuesday, dear Mae.
What fun to have Thanksgiving in February. Why not? We really should be thankful all through the year and the date one celebrates that with family and friends doesn't really matter.
The food looks absolutely delicious.
Christmas in July, Thanksgiving in February, why not! Sounds like you had a good evening. Thanks for your comment about His Dark Materials, you're right in that it got worse as it progressed. Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xx
Being flexible is a key to happiness. Happy T Tuesday!
Wonderful meal! Happy T day, Valerie
Fabulous, those Thanksgiving treats look so yummy 😊. Happy T Day wishes! Hugs, Jo x
I love the idea of Thanksgiving in February. It's a real break in the action. February can seem like such a long month -- a warm, lovely dinner like this? The perfect antidote!
We can be Thankful all year round so that is a great excuse to have Thanksgiving in February. Your meal looks delicious and such a pretty tart.
Happy Tea Day,
It all looks delicious- great that you got together at last. We are planning our family Christmas get together for this weekend. Just an informal party with a buffet and games. Belated Happy T Day, hugs, Chrisx
What a fun thing to do and WOW does that dip and that tart look delicious!!!
