Gratitude Challenge: November 23


Today, today... today I am thankful for having food to cook for a sumptuous dinner tomorrow.  I am thankful for leftovers... as I think for a change we might actually have some.

I have a HUGE turkey.  Huge.  I have bags of potatoes, so we will have mashed potatoes a-plenty.  I have the makings for piles of stuffing.  We have corn, corn and more corn.  We have cranberries, fresh ones even.  We have sweet potatoes in abundance.  I may make squash, haven't decided yet.  If I get myself moving, we can have plenty of dinner rolls...

And a fresh apple pie.  The one thing that won't be left-over. 

In short, while I thought we would be having a lean Thanksgiving, we actually have MORE than plenty.  And we are going to prepare it, and feast.

Amen! I'm thankful for that too. We're going to have more than I thought and the leftovers are a blessing. After the 2nd day I like to turn a more leftovers into new meals to change things up a bit.
