Thanksgiving in Photos


On Wednesday afternoon, I headed up to Central Park to see the Macy's parade balloons getting inflated. I've never been motivated enough to brave the crowds on Thanksgiving Day, but this was a fun, if not strange, way to see some of the action. I can't get that face-planted Pillsbury Doughboy out of my head.

Thursday was happily spent in the kitchen. The fruits of my labor included a roasted 12-pound turkey, my favorite tacky but tasty Thanksgiving side, enough other sides to crowd a plate, and a new delicious pumpkin pie recipe courtesy of City Bakery. What were the highlights of your holiday?

  2. That sweet potato souffle looks dangerously good! And I have yet to go see the parade in person, but I've heard going to see the balloons be inflated is such a fun experience. Maybe next year!

  4. I never saw the balloons get blown up but I did try to attend the parade one year and it was a disaster, just way too many people. Its much nicer to watch it on tv

  5. The Macy's parade was something that always fascinated me when I was young. I don't think I've ever seen a parade of such magnitude anywhere else. It's cool that you got to see the balloons being blown up! (And glad your laptop is all fixed up! Happy Thanksgiving)

  6. A New York Thanksgiving... there is simply nothing like it! We enjoyed celebrating a Saints victory and our first holiday in our new home.

  9. I think seeing the balloons inflate would be much better than waiting in the cold for a super long parade.
