Thanks for Thanksgiving
Thanks for Thanksgiving | Julie Markes
38 posts | 2 read
Everyone knows that Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks the question is, where to begin? From the turkey on the table to warm, cozy cuddles, life is full of small things and bigger pleasures. But what is most important is being able to share them with family!Julie Markes reminds kids and adults alike about the little details that make each day enjoyable, while Doris Barrette's beautiful and striking illustrations bring her thoughtful words to life."

Thank you for the cute card @jenniferw88 - I love that‘s he‘s flying a book, although it took me a little while to notice! 🤪

I hope that you enjoy the book when you get round to reading it.... 😘

#gratitude30 #food Those of you who know me well know that I love to cook and have a sizable collection of cookbooks. I really love to cook for others, so it was a pleasure to contribute to our congregation‘s Thanksgiving potluck today. Peas with pancetta for a crowd.

Bookzombie Looks yummy. 9mo
kspenmoll I adore peas! This looks so delish! Just added pancetta? 9mo
Lynnsoprano @kspenmoll I chopped the pancetta and fried until crisp, removed it with a slotted spoon and sautéed chopped onion and garlic in the drippings. Added the peas, chicken broth, salt and a teaspoon of sugar. Simmered until the peas were cooked, then mixed in the pancetta and a little chopped parsley. It‘s a Cooking Light recipe (more or less-recipes are just guidelines?) 9mo
kspenmoll Sounds delicious! Thank you! Cannot wait to make these! 9mo

I love all food, but I am a Southern gal, so dressing is my favorite (not stuffing). I also love butter beans and Mac and cheese :) (which aren‘t just for Thanksgiving, but we will be having them!) #Sundayfunday @sebrittain

sebrittain Another southern girl! We're all about the dressing. 9mo
Kappadeemom @sebrittain yes!! And very particular amIright? 9mo
Kdgordon88 Cornbread dressing just like Grandma use to make. My dad will make sure I get it right. 9mo

1. I‘m going back to work tomorrow. Finally! So I‘m just planning to read before bed and weekends. I found out this year that reading goals are not my jam!
2. No, but I do write some. Mostly journaling.
3. Election Day, pumpkin pie and stuffing
4. Happy November @robinb @Booksnchill @Cinfhen and @CoffeeNBooks and @AmyG

In Norway we don't celebrate Thanksgiving. But we seem to be getting more and more American restaurants and they serve the traditional Thanksgiving meal with turkey #🦃 . I was out with friends on Thanksgiving earthing this delicious meal ❤️😀 #emojinov

Tamra 😋 We eat leftovers for days in this house. 😂 The best part is the turkey “curry” and turkey noodle soup that follows. (edited) 2y
Kaye What is the round thing on your plate ? A biscuit? 2y
AnneCecilie @Kaye no, that's the stuffing 2y

I‘m thankful for all my wonderful Littens this year! I really appreciate this wonderful community and all it brings to my life!

Susanita I‘m admiring your china. 2y
GondorGirl I am also admiring your china! 😍 2y
Molly_the_mezzo @Susanita @GondorGirl Thank you! It‘s called Desert Rose, and the original set of it was my grandparents, although we‘ve added a number of pieces over the years. 2y

azulaco That‘s my mother‘s china, that I grew up with. Purchased in 1967, still in use as her everyday china. Franciscan made good stuff back in the day...the Desert Rose update they came out with in the 1990s was not nearly as pretty, in my opinion. 2y
Pamwurtzler That china is so pretty!! 2y
Lcsmcat I grew up with Desert Rose too. It‘s fun to see it again. 2y
Cortg My mom had that as well as the Apple print growing up! How fun! 2y
Eggs I have and use my Desert Rose every day! Love it, wish I had the apple print too 2y

1. Cranberry sauce or sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top (seriously unnecessary). And while I love turkey, I'm also allergic to it, so I think I'd have to include it as a least fave!

2. If forced to choose, sci-fi.

3. Facebook. It's the best way to keep up with the lives of far flung friends.

4. 2 human, 2 feline, 1 canine. And on Thanksgiving 1 food baby.

5. And I'm off! Woo Hoo!

1. Stuffing and Brussel sprouts 🤢. 2. Mystery (I like SciFi too). 3. Instagram I guess. 4. 1 Fur baby 🐶. 5. Done! 😊 #FriYayIntro

TheKidUpstairs Brussels are usually over cooked at Thanksgiving, which is awful. But when they're done right they can be sooooo good! 2y

Turkey in the oven, 3 of 5 pies are done (crust is made for the other ones just need to fill 'em), kids get no internet until they prep all the veggies so I'm going to relax and get caught up on some #Screamathon reading and some seasonal movies 😊 Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my Canadian friends!!!! 🍰🦃🍻

A few hours later this table was filled with a group of people I treasure. Food, libations, laughter, my nieces dancing on my coffee table to Sofia the First, and my experimental pie being a hit were highlights of my thankful day. #thankfulfor #photoadaynov16
