In the spirit of the season, I'm so grateful for my family. I love Thanksgiving. To me it's the best holiday...no presents or religion (no offense intended to anyone) just sit around a table, enjoy each other, laugh and express gratitude.
The feeling extends for a few days because I open my refrigerator and I see remnants (you might call them leftovers) of the day and it brings back those great feelings.
• Aunt Mara's pumpkin and apple pie complete with homemade schlag (whipped cream)
• Amy's fresh salad
• My Sister-in-law Susan's squash gratin
• And off course, the fried turkey and smoked/grilled duck I cooked
I hope you have remnants of the day in your refrigerator that bring you joy :)
