To my readers in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving! Today is a day of reflection for most. A time to appreciate all that we have, to help those in need and to remember how our country first began. Every day, I recognize how truly blessed I am for my husband and children, and the laughter, joy and love they bring to my life. I didn’t realize how empty my life was, until they all entered in.
I am also thankful for the wonderful foodie friends I have met through blogging. One of them is Stephanie from Life Tastes Like Food. She is hosting The Holiday Project on her blog, and invited me and other bloggers, and non-bloggers alike, to share stories about the holidays or food or both.
Today, she is featuring me and my recipe for Whole Wheat Pomegranate Scones. Check out her blog, her gorgeous pictures and her delicious recipes. Her Crab and Cream Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers are my personal favorite and taste super amazing!
Stop by her blog, check out my post and say hi, won’t ya?
For a Thanksgiving tribute, I asked each kid two questions this morning:
What does Thanksgiving mean to you?
What are you thankful for?
These are their answers:
The Professor: “Thanksgiving means taking off from school and being thankful for what you have. I am thankful to be able to go on great vacations! And did I mention the food?”
Middle-Child: “Thanksgiving means being thankful for what you got. I am thankful for my playstation!”
The Princess: “Thanksgiving means being with your family.” When I asked her what she was thankful for, she flashed that smile that makes me melt and jumped in my arms and gave me her bestest hug.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
