Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving Table - Photo by Taste As You Go

I'm sitting on a train, heading home to Connecticut for the Thanksgiving holiday (and long weekend), and my mouth is watering thinking about all of the food I'm about to consume in a few hours. To say that I'm excited about Thanksgiving dinner is an understatement. Every year, I say that I'm going to eat at least two plates of food, but then I usually get caught putting way too much food on the first plate and I get stuck at one. (Not including dessert, of course. There's always room for dessert.)

But what I'm really excited about is getting out of the city to spend time with my family. Of all of the "children," I'm the only one who lives outside of Connecticut, so it's a big deal for me to go home for an extended period of time. And, I'm always running at 150% in New York, so it'll do me a great deal of good to disconnect for a bit and relax. I'm thankful that getting home doesn't involve more than getting on a train.

I'm also thankful for each of my blog readers. I know I don't have the most popular food blog in the world (and I probably never will), but I love being able to share my recipes and reviews and my thoughts with you. Thank you for making blogging worthwhile!

Before I close, I want to remind everyone of my Share Our Strength pledge. Today, as we all prepare to sit down with family and friends to share a meal that has been lovingly prepared, give pause to think of those who may not be as fortunate.

Happy Thanksgiving!
