Mashed potatoes with butter
Green bean casserole
Cheesy broccoli casserole
Corn with dill
Pumpkin pie with whipped cream
MMMMMMMM….It was SUCH a good meal. I get a huge smile on my face just thinking about everything I ate all over again! Thank goodness for leftovers!
People always ask me…don’t you miss the turkey?
Honestly–NO. It was NEVER my favorite part of the meal. I love the sides so much more! So being a vegetarian on Thanksgiving is NOT a hardship and never will be. I was STUFFED leaving the table 🙂
Every year on thanksgiving I reflect on all I am thankful for. It makes me realize just how blessed I am. I give thanks for…
…my sweetie!–a hug from her can always brighten my day and I’m grateful for her in my life every single day–I’m glad we share our day-to-day life
…a home over my head…a home that last year at this time was only a dream…a home that we have put our sweat and love into and that really feels like HOME
…always having enough food to eat…never wondering where my next meal is coming from
… my family–although they are far away, I think of them all the time and love them tremendously
…my adopted family here in MA…Kimm’s family has always made me feel welcome
…a job in this uncertain economy…one that allows me to have all of my needs met and many of my wants as well
…my health…as much as I may complain about my aching back or my sore feet, I really am EXTREMELY healthy and wouldn’t trade that in for the world
…my pets, Madeline, Charlie, and Izzy…who give me such joy every day…and LOTS of laughs as well!
…my friends..near and far I’m always amazed that so many people consider me to be important in their lives
…the blog world…where I am continually inspired every day
I hope everyone has had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Bring on the Christmas music baby!
