Yay Thanksgiving dinner!

First plateful over at Stripey’s sister’s place — a big gathering, sixteen people all told counting the kids! A very nice mix of stuff — both sweet and regular mashed potatoes, stuffing, two kinds of gravy, an excellent broccoli salad, etc. My two contributions were the bread on the left there — a raisin cinnamon sesame bread from Avanti — and the cucumber salad, which is in between the bread I brought and the broccoli salad. I used this recipe and modified it slightly (no tahini available but I added sliced small sweet peppers), and I got a slew of compliments so hey! Mixing the dressing was key, aiming for a smaller amount overall with more emphasis on taste instead of oil. Worked wonders. Hope your day was equally good!
