Gobble, Gobble: Happy Thanksgiving Day!
Happy Thanksgiving! I was somewhat of a picky eater as a kid, and I always loved Thanksgiving because it was one of the few meals where I absolutely loved the entire menu!! (Luckily, I discovered when I left my small country town that I am not really a picky eater! I eat Indian, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, Greek, Lebanese, Italian, French, German, Caribbean, etc. And I am pretty much open to trying any type of food. It turns out that I just don't like Southern food!) But Thanksgiving is still a favorite menu for me. Different people have different ideas of the perfect Thanksgiving meal. Some do lasagna, some do steak. Ours is the traditional: turkey, ham, dressing, sweet potato casserole, ambrosia, cranberry sauce, green beans and then pecan pie for dessert-- yummy! And who wouldn't love a holiday that encourages everyone to take an inventory, think about their blessings, and be thankful? And it doesn't require you to buy anyone any gifts! Sweet! So wherever you are today, and whatever menu you choose to eat, I hope you are happy and surrounded with love. I hope you have many things in life that you are thankful for. As for me, I am blessed beyond measure. I am thankful for my amazing husband, my awesome son, and my incredible family and friends. I am thankful for this fantastic new career adventure, and I am thankful for each and every one of you reading this and supporting my efforts. Happy Thanksgiving!
