Dad in Florida (alas, Grandpa is ailing, but that will no doubt be another post, all too soon) & Mom is... well... Should I get into this? Her world has become narrow and circumscribed. She wanted to have us over, but only to go out to eat at a restaurant. I have reservations about making people serve me on a family holiday, but I have even stronger reservations about not having a family meal on a family holiday. So we passed. We counteroffered making dinner at our place. They passed. We doublecounteroffered bringing fixings and making dinner at their place. They passed. Allrighty then.

Fortunately jason_brez sent out the call, and so we had a fantastic Thanksgiving meal with him and his parents at their awesome Dana Point place. We brought wine and some cauliflower to fry up with tahini sauce, an idea started by our fond remembrance of the cauliflower at Bucato. They gave us everything from turkey to pork terrine, homemade rye to fresh rolls, pickles to sweet potatoes, and pumpkin pie for afters. The conversation was just as fantastic as always. And I scored the loan of some of [livejournal.com profile] nihilistic_kid's work, which I have strangely avoided, because he's just that dude who's a friend of friends. But of course my friends are awesome, so he's probably awesome, too.
