30 Days of Thanksgiving: Day Twenty-Four, a Family That Loves to Cook

I'm wiped out tonight after work. I'm glad my coworker took her vacation on a short work week! Tomorrow's my last day of work for the week. I think I can make it. :-) Jenn told me that she has enjoyed this month of Thanksgiving & asked what I had planned next month. Last year (or was it the year before?) I hosted a virtual cookie exchange. I was thinking about doing that again next week. So, this is your warning. Get ready to bake some cookies -- or just find photos of cookies that you've baked in the past -- and share your photos & recipes with us next week. I'll have more info later.


This brings me to what I'm thankful for today: the family I grew up in was filled with good cooks. Glenn's family was filled with restaurant owners/managers/chefs. I think my sister & sister-in-law have turned out to be excellent cooks. And even my daughters can cook. Food is a great part of the holiday tradition around here. And the cooking starts around here tomorrow morning. Glenn's going in to work late so he can get his pumpkin pie done. He'll work late tomorrow -- we have a Thanksgiving Eve service. I've already made my cornbread for the dressing. When I get home tomorrow I'm making cranberry sauce. Mmmmmmmmmmm........

To God who gives our daily bread,
A thankful song we raise,
And pray that He who sends us food
May fill our hearts with praise.

I've been working on my Thanksgiving stuff today. One year I got up at 3am I think it was and chopped and cooked until I was exhausted and it was time to eat. So, I'm trying to spread things out. Just hope my choices for spreading it out are correct. We'll see come Thursday. Hmm. Virtual cookie exchange huh? Virtual calories? OKAY!!! Looking forward to Thanksgiving day and finishing the 30 days out. And then ... :) Jenn

Wishing you and yours the most blessed of days as we break bread with friends and family or spend our time as a volunteer with any one of the numerous charities in need of our time and talents.

Peace, plenty, prosperity - my wish for the United States of America.
