Giving Thanks

I have so much to be thankful for and am in a place where I'm able to gratefully appreciate it. This year has been a roller coaster, but that's what makes us able to really love the good times in life.

Yesterday we had my father-in-law over for a huge dinner - way too much food for three people. However, if there's ever a day to go overboard, that's the day, right? The menu included:
  • Vegetarian "Neatloaf" - Special K cereal, brown rice, tofu, ricotta cheese, herbs, etc.
  • Crispy Yummies - potato, cheese, and sour cream casserole
  • Green Bean Casserole - a delicious vegan version
  • Sweet Potato and Kale Bread Pudding - definitely not vegan, but equally delicious
  • Sally Lunn Herbed Rolls
  • Cranberry Horseradish Sauce
  • Chocolate Pecan Pie
...and a new dessert that I can't stop thinking about - Pear Upside Down Cake...

Hope you had a bountiful Thanksgiving with family and friends!
