Hungry for Thanksgiving...

What? We're going to eat as a family for Thanksgiving!?

Turkey Meatball Soup

Instead of bread crumbs, to keep this Thanksgivingish, try using cornmeal & adding a box of StoveTop turkey stuffing... Mmm. I like using Jewish type spices (ever since Alan went to Israel): coriander, pinches of cayenne & cumin... Mmm. Thanksgiving soup... for a fresh twist on my favorite holiday!

Pumpkin Pie with Soy Milk alternative

In school the other day, the kids were asked to tell something they were thankful for. Micah chimed in "goats!" It might sound odd, but to a kid who doesn't get to have regular cheese, he's thankful for goat's cheese...when he gets it.

This Thanksgiving, we'll be making pumpkin pie with vanilla soy milk. Click on the title for this simple substitute.

I am so thankful for all the things the Lord allows us to enjoy. We each have limitations, and yet there are so many things that are within our grasp that we can praise Him for & enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

So much to be thankful for... and yet it's so much more than a warm, fuzzy, gathered-with-the-family-around-a-fat-turkey feeling, devoid of a recipient.
Thanksgiving is an offering to our great God for Who He is & how personally and intentionally He interacts with us for our good in addition to His glory.

Believe me, I'm planning to enjoy my time with family, cuddled close with some warm chocolate soy milk (our version of hot cocoa) or some silk nog to sip; but my heart is to spend this Thanksgiving week giving thanks to the Giver of all good things.

Hope you have a great one too...

With love, michelle
