Happy Thanksgiving And A Holiday Giveaway

Ha!

I wish each and everyone of you a totally awesome and wonderful Thanksgiving. I hope you will be enjoying the day with family and friends. The food is important it’s what is the driving force behind the holiday but without our loved ones and friends to enjoy it with we might as well just have a bowl of cereal. I have a lot to be thankful for, family, friends, great job, the sweet memories of my pugs.  I am also thankful for each and every one of you, YES YOU, without each others support and inspiration what would be the point of having a blog. I am thankful for each of your wonderful and uplifting comments, thank you so very much. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, not just because of the food but I love a holiday where there is no pressure to gift anyone, it is a day when we all come together to enjoy each other, catch up (if you haven’t seen each other for a while) eat, drink and be merry.

I start cooking in the morning, it’s a busy day and usually by the time all is said and done I am exhausted but in a good way. The day after Thanksgiving is also the official start of the Holiday Shopping season, I avoid the stores like the plague on Black Friday.

As a holiday gift to you I asked the UBER talented Michael of Michaels woodcraft to make a cutting board which will be given away to one lucky reader. Michaels workmanship and devotion to his craft is inspiring. Thank you Michael!! This is open to US residents only, again, I am sorry that we cannot ship to my international friends. All you need to do is leave a comment and you will be entered. Thank you all for being there and putting up with me and for being so supportive. I truly appreciate it.

This board is gorgeous, made with love by Michael and will last a lifetime if cared for properly. I have to admit I have an addictiion to his boards, everytime I see a new one I have to have it. They really make a gorgeous presentation on the table.

The drawing will be on Wednesday December 2nd, Good luck my friends and have a wonderful Thanksgiving feast!!

  30. Happy Thanksgiving Suzanne and pugs (they are still with us in spirit)! You have one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know and I wish you could have fed your pugs turkey this year. The pictures all made me smile. I made a turkey for the first time in 20 years; as you may (or may not) have noticed, no greetings from the beaches of Maui this year. It was a wonderful meal.

    November 28, 2015
    • Wow you didn’t go away and made a turkey. Well I am sure it was wonderful and your two sweet babies enjoyed a turkey dinner. Thank you so much Stacey, I hope you and your two little cuties are doing well and a very Happy Hoidays to you all. I missed my wonderful pugs terribly, I felt like they were with me as I cooked, standing there staring at me wanting a bite of food. How I wish they had really been there with me.
