Happy Thankgiving!

November 27, 2008

I wish you all a great Thanksgiving. We are heading out to our good friends’ farm later today for our Thanksgiving dinner. They are taking care of the turkey (local and free range heritage breed) and most vegetables, and I’m making the following:

  • Mashed potatoes
  • Dinner rolls
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Pumpkin pie (from scratch with pie pumpkins I roasted last night)
  • Coconut pumpkin flan (dairy and wheat free dessert)
  • Stuffing
  • Steamed beets in a vinaigrette

Our children will play, we will talk a lot about a variety of subjects, delicious (mostly) local food and spirits will be consumed and a good time will be had by all, I predict.

Though our country and world is experiencing many problems right now, I feel thankful for many things, but I’m only going to list a few right now.

  • I’m thankful for my family. I have a great husband and three smart, lively girls. They enrich my life in so many ways.
  • I’m thankful that we are all healthy. I’m serious about this one. After dealing with medical bills from an appendectomy and a drilled-through finger this year, it’s so important that we are healthy and don’t need to be on medications.
  • I’m thankful that our business has been steadily busy and we still have scheduled, future work.
  • I’m thankful that we have built a community of friends. This is especially important to me since we don’t have much family up here.

Be safe and well this Thanksgiving, friends.
