Counting Our Blessings

Well, Thanksgiving is almost here! We will be going to up to Matt's parents gorgeous home in the mountains for our annual Thanksgiving family get together and I am getting very excited!

I will be making our staple contribution, homemade cranberry sauce. This will be my fourth year making cranberry sauce from scratch (I have been making it since Matt and I were dating) because Matt loves the stuff and used to eat the canned kind (because no one else cares for it!) and when we met I could not bear to buy that stuff because frankly, it grosses me out! I think most people put it on the table to add some pretty color. The homemade version is actually good and it looks appetizing, it is not gelled nor does it look like the mold of the inside of a can, plus it's super easy to make. I will also be making lots of other little treats. I have a lot to do to before Thursday!

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
