|Will you be home for the holiday?|
This year we are staying put
and won't be traveling to see family
in far away states, unfortunately.
It will just be the four of us, nice and quiet.
I am so thankful this year
for so many things.
But oddly enough,
we are trying something different this year.
We are not having
the traditional Thanksgiving feast
with the turkey, stuffing, potatoes,
cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie
that most of you will be sharing.
We decided to make this year's meal
a themed one....
and since none of us are
particularly fond of turkey.
We are having a
By that, I mean that I have agreed
to make (or buy) something
that each of us would LOVE to eat,
a dish that we love,
our ultimate favorites ---
food we are most
So here is our Thankful Menu:
(completely homemade from an local Italian Deli in town)
Mac and Cheese
Stuffed Green Peppers w/Mashed Potatoes
Pesto and Goat Cheese Pasta Shells
and Texas Hot Cocoa Cake
I know some of you
gasping right about now!
We will have lots of leftovers
and everyone is extremely happy about this plan,
and I am very, very thankful about that!
|So I will be busy at my not-so-easy bake oven all day today preparing things! |

Hope this finds you
enjoying your holiday preparations today,
and may your Thanksgiving feast
be a most enjoyable one tomorrow.
I am thankful that you are my friend
and that you came by today.
Warm wishes to you and yours~
P.S. Is there anything on your menu
that is not a traditional Thanksgiving dish?
