|A quiet moment while dinner cooks|
Last Year my leg was in a cast and I was on crutches, so cooking was out of the question for me. We went to the local diner and had a free dinner that the owners do for the local community as a thank-you to the local community.
So for beginners, I am grateful to be standing on both lgs.
Thanksgiving finds me living a very different life than I had planned. There are blessings in all kind of circumstances but sometimes it is necessary for us to really LOOK.
What a challenge it is to cook a Thanksgiving feast for one vegetarian, another who is lactose intolerant and another who follows a low fat and low sugar diet. I did lots of searching for receipes to accommodate everyone's needs.
I had a great time shopping for Thanksgiving dinner at Trader Joe's. I love that place. My latest find is multi-colored carrots and they are a rainbow of yellow, orange and red. I have named them little jewels. They are very sweet and colorful. I have already returned and bought 2 more bags. One of the pleasures and downsides of shopping at Trader Joe's is the constantly changing inventory. It is fun to try new additions but at TJ's you never know how long it will be available so you buy multiples of things you like.
|Oops, no room for fruit salad!|
Yep, I ate it all!!
The next day while suffering from Carb overload I was laying on the couch and watching a circus of squirrels playing in the tree outside of my window.
The sun had just come up and provided a wonderful glow on the tree. Without leaves in the tree their nest is fully visable and they were darting in and jumping out, leaping from limb to limb.
I took pictures from inside, and outside...
and even had company while taking pictures from my perch on the bench beside the garbage can.
