I'm thankful for my beautiful, caring wife.
*Who hasn't thrown me out of the house for blogging when I should be spending some time with her. At least, not yet.
I'm thankful for my kids, who are equal parts cute, smart, funny, and annoying.* How did I get so lucky, to have such wonderful kids?
*I've realized that being a parent involves loving your kids, being proud of them, and wanting to ground them for life, often all at the same time.
I'm thankful for my family, who puts up with my food obsessions much more gracefully than I deserve.
*Later today, I'll be spending time with them. I'll be the one with a turkey drumstick in one hand, a glass of wine in the other, and a plate stuffed with all the side dishes I can carry on the table front of me.
I'm thankful for Thanksgiving leftovers. I'm already looking forward to a turkey sandwich with a side of reheated stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy.
*And, just to check...you ARE making turkey stock with your leftover carcass, right?
I'm thankful for all my readers. You're what makes writing this blog fun. Have a happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
