It Was A Feast

Non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We decided to do it different this year. And though I did miss all of the pleasant scents of the traditional holiday dinner wafting throughout the house, I truly enjoyed what we had. Marinated chicken and beef kabobs, and an amazingly tasty ground beef mix kabob done to perfection by my sister.

Grilled Asian eggplant, poblano peppers and vine tomatoes. So amazingly tasty.

Savory turnovers made with puff pastry filled with a delicious spinach and feta cheese combo.

The green onions (for grilling) and fresh herbs. Feta cheese. I didn't get pictures of everything. Or any pictures of dessert. Anyway, it was great and we had a lot of fun. Another dysfunctional Thanksgiving under our belts.

On the knitting front, so much going on. But first a pic of my niece wearing my Arboreal Cowl knit in Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. What a great pattern and nice cuddly warm cowl.

I knit my Lady Emily Fingerless Mitts from Off The Cuff in STR Korppi lightweight.

Oh, I've also sewn a few needle rolls, or as they've come to be known in Ravelry, Nano-Rolls. More on these later.

The Lady Emily's are so pretty. I may just have to knit a pair. Your Kabobs look yummy.

OOhhhh the kebobs are a good idea for sure! Might use it for Christmas dinner :-))
