Thanksgivings

I am thankful for so many people who love me. I am thankful for so many people to love.

This will be my mantra for the next week.

Thanksgiving starts Saturday for us with a daytime meal with Alex's parents, brother, and brother's fiancee and family.  We are bringing cranberry bread, roasted brussel sprouts with almonds, and buffie wellies, Alex's buffalo wellington creation (recipe coming soon).

I am thankful for so many people who love me. I am thankful for so many people to love.

Thursday noontime will find us at my great aunt's house for the lovingly named the 'short lady lunch', after my grandfather's nine vertically challenged sisters.  This gathering will have fifty or more people sharing a meal on my great aunt's pig farm.  I will proudly bring our home-pressed cider, replacing the cider that used to be provided by my apple farmer uncle Gene who died a few years ago.

I am thankful for so many people who love me. I am thankful for so many people to love.

On Thursday evening we will travel to Napoleon to eat a soup dinner with my mother's family.  We will bring a soup Lil likes and a loaf of homemade bread.  We'll stay the night with my aunt, two of my sisters, parents, cousins, and several dogs.

I am thankful for so many people who love me. I am thankful for so many people to love.

Finally, on Sunday evening, my sisters, Alex, Lil and I will gather at my parents house for a final family meal.

We are not cooking the turkey for any of these thanksgivings but those of you who are cooking might be interested in turkey the hound way.

I am thankful for so many people who love me.
