This time of year I start seeing ads for shopping and gift guides everywhere I turn. I want to hold on all of that and be thankful for you, for my husband, my family and friends and everything in my life. We all have it so good, even when it doesn't feel very good. And for that I'm thankful.
Tomorrow we'll spend the day in town with family. We're making a conscious effort to not go crazy with too much food, to be more aware of what we're eating and make sure it's really high quality. After having cooked a turkey, a naturally raised on a farm turkey, I can no longer do it. I can barely stomach it to be honest. I'll get down and granola about it, they're just really beautiful birds and I don't want to eat one. We're having pork loin instead I believe, but heavy on the yummy side dishes.
You guys I made this stuffing last year and it's the best. So. Good. I'm excited to make it again, I'm actually only excited about the stuffing and pumpkin pie, that may be all I eat. ;) The stuffing is really easy, please skip the boxed stuffing, it doesn't do bread justice. Click the picture for the recipe. Nommms.
I'm also doing a plethora of roasted veggies. We eat roasted veggies a lot. It's so easy it's turned into my go to I didn't plan anything for dinner meal. It was requested for Thanksgiving, so I will be roasting all of the veggies :) I even have lentils in the prettiest fall colors, I may sneak them in.
I'm excited and hopeful that I won't have to roll away from the table this year, still wearing a comfy but chic maxi skirt. ;)
Here's to you my sweet friends! I'm beyond thankful that I get to work out of my home studio daily because you trust me with your homes and businesses. You're the best people and I'm honored to call you JHD clients. Hug your families a little tighter tomorrow and remember to be thankful for all we have, rather than wishing for more things.
