:: Day 168 - Friendsgiving Dinner ::

Every thanksgiving, I bring together some old friends for a "friendsgiving" dinner. Last year I followed Rachel Ray's Thanksgiving in 60 recipes. This year, I pay homage to Heidi Swanson and Peter Berley and whipped up a 9-course (almost) vegetarian feast. Dyl contributed dish #10 which was a hearty spicy lentil stew!
