Happy (very) belated Thanksgiving. I knew it was likely I would neglect this blog, which makes me sad because I enjoy writing so so much, and I even more enjoy sharing my writing with those who are willing to read it. That’s besides the point, that today I’m going to briefly share my thanksgiving with you, not only in words but in pictures as well.
It all started when I woke at 6am up to the sound of my alarm, usually this sound is the worst a human could ever hear, but today was thanksgiving so the sound of the alarm was somewhat pleasant. My reasoning for waking up early on a holiday (which is rare in my case) was pie. Yes, P I E. It was my job this year to bake the pies, and the turkey needed to be in the oven by 10am (which didn’t happen by the way) so I needed to get them prepped and in the oven early. I baked two apple crumble pies as well as two pumpkin pies.
Lets fast forward to when the pies were out of the oven, the turkey was in and I was cooking several other dishes, such as, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes. I enjoy cooking so this wasn’t a hassle at all! There isn’t much to say about this part of the day considering I was just simply in the kitchen hard at work.
Dinner time, ah yes the best time of the day. On the table? Turkey, brussels sprouts, cranberry sauce, stuffing, mashed potatoes,the best gravy you will ever taste, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, and of course the pies, but that comes later.
Food was great, and it was even greater that the night was finished off with Apples to Apples and trying to explain homeschooling to my aunt. When it all comes down to it, I am beyond thankful for every little thing I have. Not just on Thanksgiving, but also on every other day of the year. I could go on and on about how thankful I am for everything the Lord has blessed me with, but thats for another blog post.
Thats whats in my cup of tea
