Thanksgiving photo

After 3 days of cooking on the wood fired cook stove, we were blessed to have 9 at our farm table eating and thankfully giving love to one another.   Life is good and we all are a little fluffier now.

What did you do on Thanksgiving or what do you still plan to do?  Do tell!

In the spirit of farming, family and faith,

Well, our whole family came to our house for Thanksgiving. All 7 of us. We usually have a guest but didn't this year for some reason. The grandgirls were all giggles - dressed up pretty for the day! After dinner most of the parents took a nap. I was wanting a nap, but SOMEONE had to watch the kids! It was a great day!! I was thankful for my electric stove. I admire you and all those other moms who can cook on and in a wood stove!! ...debbie

We had an amazing gathering of family and friends .. eight around our table ... all homemade food from local farms .. homebaked breads and pies .. it was a wonderful day being thankful for so many blessings.

We were blessed to have 15 family members at our home on Friday for our Thanksgiving meal, which I hope is the beginning of a new family tradition. Among those present were my Father-In-Law who is 86, Mother-In-Law, 81, my Mother, 82, both of my children and their families and my youngest step-son and his bride. The youngest was my 6 yr. old grandaughter. Unfortunately, my oldest step-son and his family were not able to attend due to the children being ill. There was so much delicious food and everyone took food home with them. I've currently got 2 large pots on the stove, making wonderful smelling broth for the freezer, using the turkey carcasses. Now I'm searching the internet for a good recipe for turkey pot pies.
