Thanksgiving dinner (Better late than never!)

We had our first snowstorm even before I got around to posting about my Thanksgiving dinner! Not fair, I say :(

Since Thanksgiving and fall flavors are a thing of the past, and it's on to winter and Christmas now, I'm just going to post the pictures of my meal.

Our first course was acorn squash "boats" filled with lentils and topped with goat cheese, served with a fennel and baby spinach salad with parmesan shavings. The main course was a mixed mushroom lasagne with a side of lemon-pine nut broccoli saute. For dessert, we had David Lebovitz's pear frangipane tart (warm!) with vanilla ice-cream. All of the above were enjoyed with a 2007 Nederburg (Edelrood), a fruity Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot blend. Delicious!
