Thanksgiving may look different for all of us this year, but as you look back through the past eight months at the ways you have been cared for and blessed, I hope it will inspire you to have a grateful heart and a reason to celebrate.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I enjoy decorating the house, setting a pretty table, and sharing the day with family and friends. I look forward to making some of our family’s favorite dishes for our Thanksgiving meal. We’ll be roasting a turkey and making stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, and a 7-layer salad. For dessert I’m making a gluten-free apple pie and mini pumpkin tarts.
Creating the 7-Layer Salad is a fun project you might like to try. We cut colorful peppers into small squares, and then use them to add a special design to the top of the salad. The design usually relates to some event in our family that year. We’ve featured the flag of Sudan when our daughter Melissa and her husband Peter were working there, and one year we topped the salad with the name of our daughters’, Megan and Lizzy’s, new business, Dog Wash Depot. Some years it’s just a pretty design. I’m smiling just thinking of all the fun we’ve had making those pretty salads. Here’s a link to the recipe for the Seven Layer Salad. Just scroll down on the Extra Page at my website to find it.
No matter what the circumstances are for you this year . . . there is always one thing that never changes . . . and it’s always a great reason to be thankful:
I hope your Thanksgiving is fun and relaxing and you enjoy some good food and fun times with family or friends. Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!
