Thanksgiving Weekend with a Little Bit of Everything
We celebrated our Thanksgiving weekend with a little bit of everything including a little bit of good company.
A little bit of apple drying.
A little bit of sewing and a little bit of knitting (more on the knitting later).
A bit of hiking. Started the next section of the High Rim Trail, it is cold enough this high up now that the creek was still frozen during the middle part of the day and we were glad we had brought mitts along.
A little bit of archery practice.
This little duck had no idea why S bought him from the thrift store. He probably was quite happy to be chosen from amongst all the other bits and bobs in the thrift store and was expecting to be going to a good home. Not so.
It didn't even matter that I was singing Burl Ives' There's a Little White Duck.
The poor thing was doomed.
There was a Lot! of eating. The homemade giant perogies were a big hit.
My boys really admire Jamie Oliver and, after seeing a few of his DVDs and learning more about how he supports fresh, local food, I really liked him too but now, after trying this recipe...I luv him! These roasted veg were delicious! Seriously the best ever veg. Four helpings later I decided this would be a regular meal in our home. Yum. The only thing we did differently was to sub thyme for rosemary because we prefer thyme. We ate ours too quickly to take a photo but check out the photo from the above recipe link, you can tell they are delicious just from the picture.
So much to give thanks for - just within the simple things of our everyday lives - we feel very blessed.
