With Thanksgiving almost upon us, we spent much of yesterday preparing. Pies were made, husbands were dispatched to the store, etc.
Jess and I pulled some beets out of the garden for dinner. I'm pretty sure we ended up with four types.
There are three red (including a cylindrical) as well as a lovely set of golden beets. These join carrots and potatoes from the yard on the table.
Our neighbours recently pulled down two huge fir trees that have overshadowed the fireplace we have in the back. We've never use this for fear of burning the neighbourhood down but with the trees gone, we fired it up.
Overall, a wonderful way to spend a crisp autumn evening.
Now to fetch the inlaws!
