Thankfulness Week - Day 5

Thanksgiving is the epitome of abundance, at least for those who have the means and I am painfully aware that not everyone in this world or this country have the means. My family is always aware of where we came from and that makes us appreciate every morsel we consume and sharing food has been the best way to show love. I love my family and grab any opportunity to show that in my food. Some people might think, why make a full meal for just two people? Well, we ate, tomorrow I will share with my parents and each of the leftovers made this week will be share on my daily vlogs. I already have an idea for Turkey and Wild Rice soup.

Sweet Potato Souffle with Crumble topping 

The 'Bird' about 13 lbs. 

Simple Cranberry and Mushroom stuffing, not from a bag but made with toasted homemade croutons and low sodium Manischewitz Chicken stock 

Beans with Onion Jam and blanched almonds 

And PIE - with the perfect whipped cream to pie ratio.

I hope that each and every one of you have had a chance to enjoy the day and take a moment to be thankful for what you have and maybe just a little less emphasis on what you don't have because that's just a self fulfilling prophecy and is not productive.
I am thankful for:
  • Each Morning
  • The love of my family - husband, parents, sister and extended loved ones
  • My animal friends - Chester, Samantha, Mushka, Moses, Ginger, Henrietta, Lucy, Ethel & Gladys
  • For being able to make a meal like this one
