Thanksgiving at Nash House

It’s been a while since I’ve posted to this blog; sorry to those who have been checking!

Our summer drought (only 0.12″ of rain between July 1 and October 12) came to an abrupt end, with nearly continuous rain since October 13.  We had nearly 5″ of rain from November 17-21, with 24 hours of high winds along the coast.  The highest reported gust was 114 mph up in Washington, with 97 mph at Marys Peak.  I drove up the mountain to experience 83 mph wind in driving rain and found it quite exhilarating!

Elizabeth’s parents John and Glena drove up for Thanksgiving.  Our dinner goal was to highlight as many garden foods as possible.  All of our veggies were home-grown.

  • Grilled salmon
  • Stuffing (with garden celery)
  • Garden beets
  • Roasted carrots and parsnips with coriander and marjoram
  • Roasted potatoes and garlic with rosemary, thyme, and oregano
  • Roasted onion and salsify with garden hot peppers
  • Roasted oca with butter-orange glaze
  • Kale with chanterelles and green beans
  • Frozen corn-on-the-cob
  • Quince pie
  • Acorn squash pie
  • Glena’s cookies
  • Mark’s Marionberry mead

Quite delicious!
