Weekend recap

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I had wonderful Thanksgiving because I have lot to thankful for, my family. My children visited from the east coast for Thanksgiving. We celebrated our Thanksgiving with forty of my family members and friends.

Thanksgiving dessert table: Along with my persimmon date coconut pudding (featured in my book, Entertaining From an Ethnic Indian Kitchen), pecan  pie, and pumpkin halwa, I made two of Martha Stewart's recipes, pumpkin mousse cheese cake and pumpkin pecan tart

After all the fuss of Thanksgiving baking, chopping, cooking,  cleaning and decorating, I got to lounge around the house with my kids and husband, eating leftovers for the next couple of days.

The day after Thanksgiving, my leftover roasted root vegetables turned into a delectable soup.

Leftover mashed potatoes transformed into potato tikkis 

Thanksgiving is officially over. Now it is time to organize for Christmas.
