Last year at this time, Gregg and I were saying that it would be the last Thanksgiving we would be apart. And here we are this year, apart, determined that this will be the last one. God has been gracious and an amazing provider in this time of economic hardship on our country, and we are thankful for the job he has, for the income that he has, and for the continued contracts that come his way while there is nothing much out there otherwise. So while a part of me wants to feel down in the dumps for missing him, I try very hard to stay thankful. Ephesians 5:20 says: Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of November 22nd. As far as desserts go, we are traveling this week, so I will be washing the cookie jar in that last load of dishes and putting the cake plate away. We’ll come back next week with 4 weeks of Christmas Baking – so don’t miss that!
When my mom makes turkey gravy, she always makes giblet gravy (recipe to follow). It took me many years to learn how to make any other kind of gravy. Now that I make this recipe, it would be hard for me to say whether I prefer giblet gravy over this traditional gravy or not! It is really flavorful and the perfect compliment to the rest of your Thanksgiving feast.Pin It

When I first read this recipe, I didn’t understand what the instructions meant. Once I started performing the actions, they made perfect sense. I’m glad I take pictures, because I’d probably explain the process to you in circles! These rolls were light and wonderful – a perfect compliment to our Thanksgiving feast – or any feast for that matter!Pin It
Scott calls these “salads” and will eat them raw if I let him. I love them – boiled, steamed, roasted – it doesn’t matter to me. I’ve tried different seasonings, spices, and methods, and it all comes back to just simple salt and pepper and a roasting in olive oil – that makes the best way to serve them for me.Pin It
