Countdown to Thanksgiving -- And a Meme

The days are flying by. I must get out the turkey china and shop!

But oh, look at this -- taken today after we delivered over 1,000 pounds of food to the Food Bank from our station collection (and this is only after the first three weeks; we go till December 15).

Yes, beautiful berries and snow. Looks beautiful also, doesn't it -- don't let it fool you!

Today I am grateful that I have the resources to be able to have a lovely Thanksgiving dinner (and dinner everyday) and some special treasures from my mom to make the holiday more festive, while remembering her.

But first, a meme. I saw this on Qugrainne's blog. No tagging here, but if you decide to do it too, do leave me a comment so I can visit!

If you want to create a family cookbook, I have the site for you. I created a wonderful family cookbook using Family Cookbook Project and I could not be happier with how easy it was to get everyone in my family to contribute recipes and then have our family cookbook printed. Not only do we have a printed cookbook, but are recipes are online so it is easy to email them to friends that don’t have the cookbook available to them.

A family cookbook is something everyone can enjoy for many, many years! Good luck.
