Thanksgiving Prime Rib

Hope all of you had a fantastic Thanksgiving with the people you love. Richie and I stayed here in DC rather than fight with the travelling masses to get to either of our home states. This is the second year in a row that we've done that, so I guess we've established it as our tradition. Another tradition of two years and counting... instead of turkey, we had prime rib. Sorry, I didn't take a picture, but I can assure you it tasted even better than it looked!

Next weekend we are having a holiday cocktail party (you are all virtually invited - I wish you could come in reality too!). I'm feeling really out of practice in the party hosting arena and kind of struggling to come up with foods that are fairly easy to prepare and will appeal to a broad spectrum of people, yet have that "dinner club" quality too. Any suggestions?

So happy that this is back up and running. Any interesting plans for Thanksgiving? Great pics Nick and Jess.

Fabulous pictures... indeed, how do the Orums stay so thin?

When and where is the next reunion? I don't want to have to get married again just to see y'all!
