Happy Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is the appointed time
for focusing on the good in our lives.
In each of our days,
we can find small blessings,
but too often we overlook them,
choosing instead to spend our time
paying attention to problems.
We give our energy
to those who cause us trouble
instead of those who bring peace.
Starting now,
let’s be on the lookout
for the bits of pleasure in each hour,
and appreciate the people who
bring love and light to everyone
who is blessed to know them.
You are one of those people.
On Thanksgiving,
I’m thankful for you.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Writing Prompt: What’s the most elaborate, complicated meal you’ve ever cooked? Was it a triumph for the ages, or a colossal fiasco? Give us the behind-the-scenes story

So every year typically around Thanksgiving my mother will con me into making something we’ve never had before at Christmas time, and 97% of the time it’s a dessert. Now I love to cook, there is something about following a recipe and making something with your hands, I guess it’s another for of creativity. Now I’m always think it’s gonna be a colossal fiasco, I’m gonna forget to add something or add too much salt, but so far that have fared fairly well… well someone did tell me what my pecan pie was too sweet, and I simply looked at her and asked was that even possible, the peach cobbler that I made last year was gone within hours… so I guess I can pat myself on the back.

This year I won’t be making a dessert for Christmas, I’ll be making breakfast… and it has to fall into the “something new” category… and I’m nervous…. REALLY nervous, I have decided between either make  a quiche or a strata (if you have recipes… submit in the comments… SERIOUSLY)… Now this has a higher rate of failure…. than most of the things I make… keep your fingers crossed that it’s gonna be a triumph of the ages.


Until Next Time….
