Happy Thanksgiving, eh?
No, I'm haven't been drinking. Those of you in the know will remember that the crazy Canucks actually celebrate Thanksgiving in October. We had our dinner yesterday.
I was just totally not into rustling up a whole turkey this year. Neither did I feel like slaughtering one of our pumpkins for pumpkin pie, so we ended up enjoying a very simple meal: roast turkey breast with a rosemary, garlic and honey-mustard glaze accompanied by a bunch of vegetables. Some of us are trying to lose a few pounds so leaving out the gravy and stuffing seemed like a good idea.
For dessert I tried out a new recipe. These cranberry custard tarts really hit the spot.
As we were sitting around the dinner table I thought to myself how grateful I was to have my little family there with me.
I'm so thankful for my two beautiful, healthy children and for a loving husband who puts up with my moods and brings me flowers when I least deserve them.
This week I'm going to try to concentrate on appreciating what I DO have, rather than what I don't have. Won't you join me?
