Giving Thanks

Today I am thankful for my family and I'm thankful that they can flat COOK!  This is my plate today.  I've been absolutely miserable since about eight bites in. Probably won't eat again until Tuesday.

Yum yum!!  Turkey and ham, dressing, giblet gravy, sweet potato souffle, mac and cheese, broccoli casserole, parmesan potatoes, Brussels sprouts, green bean casserole, sweet potato stacks, peas and a roll.  I think that's it.  I'm pretty sure something else was hiding under there, though.


I'm also thankful to have been born into a hilarious family.  Not many there today even like blue cheese so my sweet potato stacks weren't much of a hit.  They were delicious, if you like blue cheese.  Mama said she didn't know what kind of cheese that was but it was r'urnt and Daddy said he didn't know if he liked blue cheese or not 'cause he's from the country. They crack me up.

I'm thankful for this sweet girl here.  It's so awesome to have a baby in the family again!

I'm thankful for my husband, who loves me with all his heart and tells me so.

I'm thankful most of all for my faith in the Lord's plan for my life, that even when I can't make sense of it, HE knows what's going on.

And I'm very, very thankful for my home, my warm bed and my yoga pants, all of which will be seeing a lot of me tomorrow as I am not doing the Black Friday thing.  I'm doing the Slack Friday thing.

Happy Thanksgiving! 


  1. We did have a wonderful day,a day to be thankful for our family and to enjoy all of you. Lizzie is such a wonderful addition to all of our lives and we are blessed to be able to watch her change and grow each time we see her. Love you

  2. What is that fried stuff on your plate? Is that balsamic vinegar on the potatoes? Mike would have loved them.

    1. It was my sister-in-law's sweet potato souffle. Brown sugar crust. YUMMMM. And, yes, that was a balsamic vinaigrette glaze drizzled over my sweet potato stacks. I can send you the recipe!
