No photos, alas.
Using a chainsaw is as close as we come to having a lightsaber in this life.

The full menu:

Carrot, sweet potato & ginger soup with ancho-sour-cream topping
Turkey
Cauliflower "cous cous" pilaf
Roasted veggies
NPR's recipe for Mama Stanberg's horseradish cranberry sauce

Dessert: Both plain and experimental pumpkin pie, brought by a guest. She asked if she could be creative, and in deference to my MIL I said "not too creative."

The experimental pie was a thick puree of pumpkin, cream cheese and spices, including chipotle. She cooked it on a waffle iron. Choice of toppings of mascarpone-whipped cream, graham cracker crumbs, and chopped pecans.

I don't much care for pumpkin pie, but this was amazing!

The entire menu sounds amazing!

The experimental pumpkin pie sounded so good I just googled for similar recipes.  Then ordered a Belgian waffle maker.  Yay, on-line Black Friday sales - and if your friend is willing to share her recipe or any tips, would love to have them!
