Thanksgiving Brunch At Per Se

Many people have been wondering how I spent my Thanksgiving and what foods I prepared and I am slightly embarrassed to admit that I cooked nothing at all.  Instead, I decided to spend the day in New York City with my daughter, Alexis and Kevin Sharkey and we had so much fun.  We started our feasting at Thomas Keller's wonderful restaurant, Per Se located at Columbus Circle on the fourth floor of the Time Warner Center.  We dined with Nikki Elkins from the TV studio kitchen and her husband Kent Motland.  Also joining us was writer, Michael Rips, his wife Sheila, and lovely daughter Nikki.

Per Se was so crowded with many families enjoying an elegant Thanksgiving brunch.  Several food stations had been set up serving wonderful pancakes, waffles, scrambled eggs, fried soft boiled eggs, ham and biscuits, tenderloin, smoked fish, and caviar.  There were also many kinds of cakes and other sweets to indulge in.  We were happy that it wasn't raining and that Central Park was nearby because a walk in the park was in order after that amazing meal!
