I hope everyone celebrating Thanksgiving today had a wonderful day filled with food and happiness. If today isn’t your Thanksgiving, then I hope you had an excellent Thursday. :)
I’m thankful for so many things this year: family, friends, health, prosperity, and so much more. I’m thankful for all of you who have read TQG or are waiting for PR to come out. I’m thankful that I get to do a job I love. I’m thankful that I have an awesome agent who always has my back. Really, I am very blessed, both personally and professionally.
I’m also fortunate to have a dear best friend who invites us to spend Thanksgiving with her and her family every year. We spent the day cooking and drinking mimosas, which, let’s be honest, is a fabulous way to spend a day. It was a small group this year, just five of us. But because we do Thanksgiving right, we had three pies—pecan, pumpkin, and apple.
I made my grandmother’s pecan pie and it turned out delicious if not beautiful (the story of my pie making).
We also had enough food that everyone took home leftovers for Thanksgiving 2 tomorrow. The menu consisted of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potato casserole, bread, fruit salad, ambrosia salad, amaretto green beans, and cranberry salad.
Pretty much the entirety of my favorite Thanksgiving foods were represented here. I did miss my mom’s baked beans, but I think I’m the only person in the group who likes beans. And we already had enough food to feed an army.
Now we’re going to hunker down and hide from the Black Friday crowds. :)
How was your day?
