My wonderful family, vegetables and fruits, Fayetteville, flavored coffee, Kitchenaid mixers, Mizuno running shoes, bobby pins, my sewing machine, vintage dresses and great vintage shops, the job I love, my siblings (they deserve a second thankfulness shout out, as they are the best I could ask for!), dishwashers, and all the things that make day-to-day life a little easier (email, hair dryers, digital clocks, umbrellas, gas fireplaces when it’s cold outside, pre-cut lettuce, …thanks of that nature!). Happy Thanksgiving!
I would say that the tryptophan (that sleepy substance in turkey) has kicked in, but since I didn’t eat any turkey I don’t have that excuse. However, nap time does sound really nice right now. Though, as I think about it, maybe it was those two glasses of Pinot Noir that have kicked in! Thanksgiving lunch was delicious. Even though I ate a vegan dinner and forewent turkey and dressing, all the veggies and salad with fixings were delicious; and, since I was in charge of desserts, I just had to try them all! Yum, yum, yum! I took a small slice of each. …you know, I had to make sure that everything tasted okay! I posted the recipe for the apple pie yesterday and promised the other recipe today. I make the pumpkin cheeseless cake every holiday (I could literally sit down and eat the entire pie in one sitting!). I found this recipe through a blog I frequent a couple of years back and I have it memorized at this point. However, for your use, here is the link: http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2007/11/double-layer-pumpkin-cheesecake.html
I’ve decided that the rest of the afternoon will be dedicated to old movies (I rented a couple of good ones from the 1960’s) and working on some craft projects. Aside from that, I do have a school project that needs to get started (anyone out there know html well?!), however, it’s not due until next weekend, so we’ll see. I’m pretty good at procrastinating when I want to be! It’s official, this is the last project for my class this semester…after I turn this in I am officially done with my first class towards my SLIS (Specialist in Library Science). One class down, nine more to go!
To all of you, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Enjoy time with family, friends, and good food!
