It requires hard work and sacrifice to make a delicious meal. When you gather around the table to share with family and friends there are always a range of personalities, beliefs, and opinions. There’s something about sharing that brings out our similarities more than our differences and that is a beautiful thing.
We loved hosting thanksgiving last year, but since my sister is about to have a baby any day we headed out to spend time with her and the rest of my family. This year we ate in courses – and I didn’t take a picture of dessert, but it was delicious. We started with curried carrot soup, then spinach + arugula salad with candied almonds and cranberries, and then the main course contained all of the classics. It’s always nice to have the classics – with a new twist – and yes, that is china, silver and cloth napkins thanks for asking! Are we the only ones that set our table like that – who else is out there?
Besides eating, the rest of the time spent with family is usually talking, playing lots of games, and playing with Julia – my two year old niece – who is a constant source of entertainment. Julia and Lexi are still best friends even when Lexi tries to steal Bunny.
I hope you have had some time to relax and see some people you love! I’ll be back to my regular blogging next week and enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.
