It's officially here...the beginning of the holiday season. This week of Thanksgiving is a prelude to what's just ahead and in some ways this celebration is even more special than Christmas. It just seems this one hasn't been twisted into something it was never meant to be.
Family, food and thankfulness. Kind of cuts to the heart of it doesn't it.
I'm not hosting turkey dinner this year so this will most likely be my last pumpkin inspired post and recipe for a while. I tried these ginger cupcakes from Ina Garten this week. The cream cheese frosting with orange zest is delicious.
Not only is it time to say goodbye to autumn and hello to winter but for me it's time to say goodbye to my dining room table until the decorations have all been put up and the Christmas tree trimmed. My family knows this, they've learned not to expect to actually eat at the table for the next week or so.
But come December 1st, it will all have been worth it.
