Giving Thanks Menu

Instead of posting another recipe, I'm going to give you a roundup of some of my Thanksgiving fave's from ABK .
And tell you this. If you've been with me for a while you know this is my all time favorite holiday. This year, double bonus. It's my bd and my fave holiday. All on one day. People ask, do you cook on Thanksgiving when it falls on your birthday?? YES. And I love it. Food, family, friends. A pause from everyday rush-rush to eat and give thanks.
I'm thankful for: (the short list)
My family. I am blessed to be a daughter, wife, mom, sister and aunt. Know what I aspired to be when I was young? A mother. I know it sounds trite, but I love being a mom and wife.
Grant. 28 years and counting. We are truly blessed.
My friends. I have been blessed with the best girlfriends. Ever.
Good Health.
Freedom. The opportunity to live in the land of the free and home of the brave. So thankful to Service men and women who are giving up being with their own families to protect mine.
Happy Thanksgiving.
