Our Culinary Thanksgiving

A kitchen blackboard shows our daily menus.  I like to add a quote at the bottom of the board.

To say that our family loves food would be an understatement. So when a special occasion like Thanksgiving comes around it is a major project of entertainment and culinary delight for all. It all begins with the menu selection. Then come days of what I like to call hunting and gathering, a.k.a. food shopping. And finally the fun begins with the preparation. Both my husband and I enjoy cooking so we make an excellent team in the kitchen. Our children also participate in the cooking.

And after a full day of culinary orchestration comes the moment when all of the dishes are completed and arranged for serving. We gather around with anticipation and excitement waiting to serve and savor our delicious Thanksgiving meal.

I hope you and your families enjoyed your Thanksgiving traditions and celebrations as much as we enjoyed ours. And of course, what makes these celebrations special is being able to share them with our loved ones. “Happy Thanksgiving”

I found a wonderful Oprah Winfrey quote that I would like to share with you:

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.

Then after all the fun comes even more fun, the cleanup!
