My sympathy about the cherry pie, Mrrzy. Did ice cream redeem it any?

Our Thanksgiving was boring. Yesterday two friends who are very Covid-conscious came to dinner. We dined on the deck at tables 10 feet apart, and the DH grilled sausages on the outdoor grill. In addition we had my cole slaw, bowls of balls, and pecan pie. (the first pecan pie I ever made.)

Bowl of Balls is a dish I invented one day when I felt too tired to cut up salad. I got out a very pretty bowl and put cherry tomatoes, radishes and green olives in it. (I suppose black olives would be nice too.) That's it. You put the spherical food in the bowl and you put the bowl on the table.

It was cold, so we took turns standing in front of the grill, which was holding a nice wood fire. Later we put on masks, went inside and conversed in our new music room, where we can sit far apart. It was a lovely evening.
