Thanksgiving Dinner

So this is the other half of Thanksgiving Day. Ron and I went to Christina's for dinner. It had turkey on the menu, but, it's an Italian restaurant, so we opted for two of the chef's specials: I had ravioli stuffed with crab meat, and he had ravioli stuffed with butternut squash and goat cheese. Both were very good.

We had a delightful meal. Our wine was a Shiraz. He had a cup of minestrone soup, and I had cream of turkey with vegetables, then, the Caesar Salad. We finished off the meal with pumpkin pie, and I also had a cup of coffee.

The food was well prepared, and the service friendly and sincere. We enjoyed it from beginning to end. The meal had hints of traditional Thanksgiving (the turkey in the soup, the butternut squash, and the pumpkin pie), and some nice Italian preparation. We enjoyed a very different Thanksgiving Dinner.
