November 25 - December 6, 2010: North Dakota

Click on the thumbnail for a map during this time period


Thanksgiving was an extended-family affair this year.  Some of the cooking took place at Zona's, and the rest took place at Cathy and Jon's, who hosted the feast.   One of the chefs at Cathy's was Erik, who braved the cold to cook a beef tenderloin on the backyard gas barbeque.  There were three tables providing places for folks to sit and eat -- the food was served buffet style.   Yummmm.
