Today marks the close of Thanksgiving weekend and after we have had the big feast, eaten leftovers for several days, made stock with the turkey carcass, entertained family and friends, it is time to take a break and reflect on all that was good. I love this holiday as it centers around food, gratitude, sharing and no gift giving other than those tasty dishes made from the heart. I know our family has much to be grateful for and I pray for those who find themselves in want and in despair. When asked what I am I grateful for, this is my response:
For family/friends when others are lonely
For food while others go hungry
For hope when others feel hopeless
For health while others have pain
For freedom when others are oppressed
Here is a photo glimpse of some our weekend offerings.
I often want to deviate from the traditional, but am out-voted. We must have the turkey!
As you can see we celebrated family and friends with a huge bounty and lots of love. I want to express my gratitude for all of my readers and followers. I appreciate all of your comments and suggestions. Hopefully you had an opportunity to share the holiday with those you hold most dear. You know I love it when you spread the love, one dish at a time.
