Happy Thanksgiving 2019!
Hey, before we get too busy with our family, friends, food, and football tomorrow, I just wanted to take a quick break from all this cooking & cleaning to say a couple quick things…
First, I APPRECIATE YOU!
As we give thanks for the many blessings we have in our lives for Thanksgiving, I want you to know that YOU (and all my students, both present and past) are HIGH on my list of the things & people I’m truly grateful to have in my life.
And not just for Thanksgiving, but for every day of the year.
So…what are you doing for Thanksgiving? Going anywhere? Hosting the party at your house? Who are you looking forward to seeing? Who do you wish would (or wouldn’t lol) come?
And do you have any special Thanksgiving or holiday recipes to share? Don’t be shy!
This year, we’re hosting a group of about 16-20 people (as usual), and they’re all my fiance’s family (as usual).
It seems like no matter HOW much food we get, they always manage to eat. Every. Bite.
It reminds me of that scene from “The Hobbit…”
In a minute, I’ve got to get back to making a few of my special dishes.
This year, I’m making my highly-requested ceviche, the salmon, and the potato salad, in addition to assisting with the turkey. That’s right – your favorite mentor can cook, too!
Can you believe a few guests we have coming said that they don’t like turkey? If only I could un-invite some people lol! (can’t do it… in-laws. Uugh.)
So whatever you have going on, I hope you enjoy it to the MAX!
Be sure to take a moment to go around the table and have everyone share what they’re thankful for this year.
Then gorge yourself & pass out in a turkey-induced coma in front of the game. I hear that’s a good thing.
Just be sure to be careful about talking politics at the table. I hear that’s a bad thing (especially if they watch CNN hahaha).
Thank you for being a part of my life. I truly DO appreciate YOU!
From my family to yours: Happy Thanksgiving!
With a big hug,
