November 24, 2011

Today is November 24, 2011, or better know to us Americans as Thanksgiving.  Families across the country will gather together and express their thankfulness over traditional (and not so traditional) foods.  Which brings me to the title of this, my first blog entry:


Eating, or food is a big part of my life (I’m sure you will soon see if you continue to read this blog).  There is something about food that brings people together and allows them to share and experience new things.  While I’m usually all for trying new and even exotic foods, today it’s all about comfort and tradition.  For my family that means:

Thanksgiving plate 2011


oyster dressing

mac and cheese

green beans

mashed potatoes with gravy and…

Peach Cobbler

peach cobbler!

In addition I tried something new;

pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting

I got the recipe from one of my favorite food sites Smitten Kitchen.

Hope everyone gets to eat something delicious today and share it with loved ones.  Happy Thanksgiving!
