It’s tradition at ThanksGavin (the 4 day feasting our family engages in each November) for one of my cousins to host the Friday Night dinner, which is like thanksgiving night all over again (but with different food). This year, Matt and his wife Andrea handled BOTH nights!
2015 Jacques Perritaz Cidrerie du Vulcain Apple Transparente.
Colorful peppers being prepped.
Appetizers of muhamara, tapenade, olives.
Cousin Matt ordered these incredible tomahawk steaks over the internet!
Matt is on the left seasoning them.
And close up of before going on the grill.
Matt somehow got these tomahawk steaks perfectly cooked first try.
Because it was a steak, he made an awesome wedge to go with it — and with the romaine scare it was actually hard to find even iceberg lettuce.
The ice berg lettuce.
A fully prepped (minus tomato) wedge salad. Amazing rich blu cheese dressing.
Salmon for those who don’t eat meat.
Amarone goes great with meat.
Here are the steaks being sliced.
And what was left about 10 minutes later.
For dessert, we begin with my mom’s rustic cranberry tart. Looks perfect doesn’t it?
Pumpkin — oops butternut squash — pie.
Grandma’s brownies and blondies.
Apple pie from the previous night.
Ice cream for ala mode.
