Once Upon a Time I invited Jim Dietz for Thanksgiving 

Thanksgiving 2009

I had a yearning to cook Thanksgiving at home this year. For years, we've been someone's guest or eaten out. Last year, we had Thanksgiving with Mike and Toni, and another time with Alan Bow and Margaret Windus. Some years, we've dined at restaurants like the Morrison-Clark Inn and the Red Sage. But I just had a desire to cook this year.

In the photo below is Jim Dietz, a colleague at the NSF and my fellow traveler to the Patagonia a few years ago.
