Pretty much every Jewish household of a certain vintage has a bottle of Sabra. We probably one or two in our pantry.

Mrs. P made crispy deep fried soft shell crabs and a sweet potato casserole with fried sage, pecans, and marshmallows. We added crumbled gingersnaps (not pictured) from World Market for a little crunch and more flavor. It all went great with our favorite red blend.

it was really sweet and the orange came through loud and clear. i could barely handle the small amount shown in the shot glass (see pic above).

by then i needed to take a long nap.

I was supposed to bring local California cheeses to the Thanksgiving fest in Pennsylvania, but I left them in our fridge and thus had to buy all the cheeses at Wegman's (rather than just the washed-rind ones that would have stunk up my suitcase).  Only the Humboldt Fog was from CA, but everyone seemed to like the selection.

Menu for 13 adults and 1 child

Appetizers
--Said cheeses, plus crackers
--Avocado deviled eggs
--Salami with mustard dip
--Spicy-sweet caramelized pecans
--Various beers

Dinner
--Turkey and gravy
--Sausage and bread stuffing
--Mashed potatoes
--Cranberry-orange relish
--Roasted beets
--Green beans with garlic & Parmesan
--Sweet potato casserole with a brown sugar-pecan topping (I had seconds as part of my dessert)
--Various wines; I sampled the Malbec

Dessert
--Pumpkin cheesecake
--Cranberry-curd tart with whipped cream
--Cranberry-apple upside-down cake
--Chocolate-chocolate chip cookies
--Cowboy cookies
--See's dark chocolate assortment
--Various teas
