Thanksgiving 2007

The Greeks aren't huge Thanksgiving celebrators, but we always have someone throwing a nice dinner on that day. In this case, we ate really well at my parent's house. There was no turkey, but my mother made her mouthwatering prime rib roast. I don't know alot of people who would chose turkey over prime rib.

My mother's yemista are delicious stuffed zucchini, tomatoes, eggplants and peppers. They are juicy vessels of goodness that are covered with tasty crispy hats - my favorite!

These are the smoothest mashed potatoes in the world. Honest.

This plate of spanakopita was made using puff pastry - quite tasty, but lets be honest, nothing beats the kind with homemade philo...which I make!

Tiropites are tasty triangles filled with a feta cheese mixture. My mom's are great because they are generously stuffed and she does not go overboard on the butter!

The star of the show was the prime rib. This was melt in your mouth, fall off the bone perfection. I love a dinner table where people can have huge amounts of meat attached to a bone, Flintstones style. no shame in that!
