Some Thanksgiving hi lites and my Christmas blog also updated.

Had a wonderful meal at my brother and sister in laws home.  It was also a celebration of my grand nieces b'day and my moms b'day.
Moms day was the 23rd , we took her out to lunch but had some gifts and a cake for both.
I made potato salad and a wheat, gluten , egg and milk free cake for my niece ,  it was four layers.  I used rice milk and crisco and vegetable margarine.  In place of eggs, I used apple sauce and mixed with it cornstarch and a little tapioca starch, it turns the color of egg and holds the cakes together just fine.

On left is redskin potatoes, I mixed in vinegar, olives onion , celery and hummus.  Tasted pretty good and for someone who cannot have the mayonaise, this worked out just fine.
My secret ingredient for the mayo potato salad is horseradish- I love that stuff and besides the vinegae, it gives the salad pizazz

 Below is the new little baby Eli,  he slept the whole time and my grande grande nephew, whew - I feel old.

Nice Thanksgiving.
I did miss being with my daughter Annette and speaking with her and my grandson Seth
She is in Tenn.  and I am sure busy with her husbands family and friends, hopefully next year.
My son also couldn't make it.  He had other plans with his fiance.
