This week’s Photo Challenge is Thankful.

A Thanksgiving meal to be thankful for, especially as Sandy reminded us that it could have been otherwise—

  1. Great photos, really enjoyed the colours – especially those purple vegetables – what kind are they exactly?!

    • Johna Till Johnson

      Hee hee! They are cabbage, and—get this—Okinawan sweet potatoes! They are naturally purple, and taste pretty much like regular sweet potatoes. I fell in love with them while shopping because of the color… and when we were preparing dinner, by chance the sweet potatoes ended up next to the cabbage and brussels sprouts… an explosion of green and purple!

  2. The turkey looks really good. Here in Germany there is not the Thanksgiving feast in the way in America. We traditionally eat a Christmas goose.

    • Johna Till Johnson

      Vlad is Czech, so we have been doing the Christmas goose as well (plus, the goose fat is SO good for cabbage!) We are looking forward to the Christmas goose this year…

  3. That surely was one yummy colorful feast – everything looks so perfect, all caramelized and brown.

  4. You’re making me feel hungry!

  5. wonderful pictures, I too would like to know which vegetables are those. Bests!

  6. thankful you are both safe for this special time – Yup that turkey looks about ready to serve

  7. Yes, we all have a great lot to be thankful for, thanks to the two of you for sharing. I feel a bit hungry looking at that gorgeous turkey…
    Have a lovely weekend

  8. I just had dinner but I’m now feeling hungry ;)

  9. Colorful photos. Love all the small details here!
    Very nice post!

    • Johna Till Johnson

      Thank you! I thought Vlad was nuts when he kept interrupting the cooking to take pictures… now I see why….

  10. I have to start cooking…lovely vegetables! It’s true that you eat just as much with the eye…

    • Johna Till Johnson

      Oh yes, you should start cooking! It took me so many years to finally enjoy it–but it’s worth the effort. And there are so many wonderful Scandianvian dishes–I’m planning to prepare fishballs for our friend Runar’s lutefisk party this winter!

  13. Sandy really put things in a different perspective. When we can have a roof over our head and food on the table – those are enough for us to be thankful. As usual, beautiful pictures.

  18. That looks SO good! (And isn’t it odd that Thanksgiving dinner has the reputation of being full of unhealthy stuff, when what it comes down to is roast poultry and lots and lots of vegetables??)

  19. What a colorful Thanksgiving you had!
    The colors are really absolutely gorgeous, especially those purples and yellows and reds. I expect the food was as complementary as the colors.
    (I wouldn’t turn my nose up at the brussels sprouts either.)

    • The Brussels sprouts were the best! It’s quite a revelation what happens to vegetables such as Brussels sprouts, broccoli, etc., when they are roasted at high heat with just a bit of garlic, olive oil, and salt…

  20. Looks like you had a great meal. I love Brussel sprouts!

  21. Yummy! I have a award over at my place for you Enjoy It
