Thanksgiving. I find it challenging to write the word without giving some sort of gratitude. Each year, before we partake in our Thanksgiving feast, we go around the table and take the time to say a few words of gratitude, stating our thanks for things such a the food at the table, good friends and the roof over our head.
Thanksgiving and autumn in general seem to be such a good time to shed, simplify and return to basics. My favorite part of our Thanksgiving ritual each year is hearing what my boys have to say . My children ceaselessly remind me to be thankful for the most basic parts of my life and open my eyes to the wonders all around me.
With thanks given, I return to the topic of Newsletter #1: The Thanksgiving Menu. For those of you who are not signed up for my newsletter visit www.elanaspantry.com/2007/11/21/thanksgiving/ to see what I’ll be serving this year.
