Happy Thanksgiving to one and all. It’s a time of year I love and today being a chilly high of 34 in Chicagoland will make for a lovely day to bake goodies for the big feast. I am thankful to all of those who sacrifice for us, especially to the military personnel who will not be at their Thanksgiving tables as they are instead stationed away from family and friends.
I am thankful for my mom who taught me how to cook so I can help make a fabulous feast for the family. I am thankful to my husband, John, who will make a delicious turkey and stuffing. I am thankful to my daughter, Meghan, who will challenge me to provide her a scrumptious vegetarian meal and will assist me in the traditional home-made danish preparations. I am thankful to Cole and Quinn who will assist in making the pumpkin and apple pies. I am also thankful for any and all time we have left with our dear dog, Snickers, who has a mass on her spleen. And lastly I am thankful for all our family and friends who make each day a joy.
Thanksgiving is a tradition celebrated in America and I do believe there is an alternative date where it’s celebrated in Canada but I do believe those are the only places. I a grateful to be able to cook, and feast with our family and enjoy some family time. I am hopeful that we will get to Skype the relatives as we are the only ones in Chicagoland. The benefit of making as much food as if you were having company means that you won’t have to cook for days after. So it all works out in the end.
So have a very Happy Thanksgiving and take a moment to share what you are thankful for. There are so many things.
