I meant to do another Elle Decor's 2011 A List post...really, I did...but the holiday prep, day and aftermath got the best of me. I'll have to double up on posts next week to catch up. In fact - I should probably do that anyway since it will be a little odd to write about a "2011" list in 2012...
In the meantime - I also completely failed at taking warm family photos of our Thanksgiving dinner. This may have a lot to do with the fact that our children are still pretty young and were barely at the table (and only my daughter put any thought into her holiday attire - the boys were still in the logo tee shirts that they put on that morning).
Earlier in the day, when I assumed that family photos were going to happen, I snapped some pictures of all my simple rose centerpiece and pretty china waiting to be set on the table.
I also took a picture of the killer dessert I made.
Okay, so the picture isn't great (there is a reason that I don't bother with shots of food on the table - foodie photography is not my forte). BUT the dessert, an eggnog cake was divine. I highly recommend the recipe.
Sending you belated holiday wishes! And if you're not in the U.S. - I hope that Thursday treated you well.
