Happy Thanksgiving!

This is the sweater that was handknit by someone several years ago. We all take turns wearing it for a short time on Thanksgiving day, just for fun. It started out quite by accident, but now it has become part of the day.

I hope you all are having a safe and happy holiday season. It is cold and blustery and possibly snowy out there, so drive with caution.

We will be having lamb instead of turkey this year, as well as the usual green beans, fresh cranberry relish, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie from fresh pumpkin, chocolate pie with dark cacao, and sugar cookies. I am sure I will be sorry later for indulging in so many gluten containing foods, but I am throwing gluten caution to the wind for a day!

Happy Holiday!

That is an amazing sweater! Your traditional food is interesting. This was not a usual Thanksgiving for my family as we visited my daughter who just bought her first house. We spent much time, cleaning, painting, tearing up carpet, chopping vines off trees. But we did have some of our favorite foods including "Thanksgiving Roast"--grains, lentils, nuts with a butter/chick pea gravy--mmmm.
