As I posted in my last couple of blogs, I have had a difficult time blogging lately. So I decided to take the plunge and join the crowd at http://www.blogher.com/ and I will be blogging once a day for the month of November.
It is now November 1st and as far as I am concerned fall is about over. Peak colours are through and leaves are falling everywhere. I love the change and the colours and I absolutely love the thought of Thanksgiving. It’s the time of year when whatever family is available to gather we do. And we eat. And as we are eating we begin discussing what we will prepare next year. I know, that sounds crazy. But I have birthed sons who love to cook and create flavours. We have turkey prepared a different way each year. I make the yeast rolls and the pies. This year I am adding a duck into the mix as appetizer. Oh! And the Pineapple Wassail! Yum. I can’t wait.
What are your traditions? Please comment ideas and recipes and the things you like and don’t like.
I know Thanksgiving can be hard if you have difficult family situations. Let’s help each other. Start new traditions of your own. Family goes farther than just blood relations. I look forward to hearing from you. Find hope and love during this season – it is a necessary ingredient in life.
