Thanks


Giving thanks tomorrow for so many things.


Thankful for having such good friends who listen, accept, never judge and most of all, put up with me.

Thankful for having health, most important, because then you can do anything. No excuses.

Thankful for having a terrific, supportive, loving husband (who is pretty handsome to boot).

Thankful for having a loving (but far from perfect!) family who I get to spend this holiday with (and I don't sugar coat it!).

Thankful for being able to prepare a beautiful meal and share it with my friends, family and readers everyday.

Thankful for being blessed with the ability to do something I love everyday, writing this blog, cooking and sharing my daily musings with you.


I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

PS this is my friend Rosemary's beautiful table setting............and that is my Gateau Breton (that sick, delicious apple cake with the salted caramel sauce), and no, they are not marijuana leaves garnishing the cake, but Japanese Maple leaves from my tree!

Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving! I truly love your blog. You make me look like a star many days a week with your great recipes including this morning when the Cranberry Cake email came. I sent my husband to the store at 7 am to get the cranberries. The cake is delicious!

I am thankful I found you by poking around on the net, many moons ago, looking for restaurants in Maplewood, and came upon your rave review of Arturo's. I've been loving your blog ever since! Happy & healthy to you and your handsome Henry.

Hahaha! My eyes popped when I saw those leaves. Then I got to the end of the post and laughed out loud!
Thanks for YOU posting every day and making drinking coffee in the morning more fun.

Stacey,

I want to reach out and thank you for the photos and the recipes you post. I always feel that I'm gaining a cultural experience when I read your blog. Yet, you never talk down to your audience! That takes skill and most important, HEART!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Stacey Snacks said...

Terrah,
Thank you!
Why would I ever talk down to someone who reads this blog? I'm just a home cook, like you!

Now, if you mispronounce something like "MAR-scapone", instead of MAS-CARPONE, then that's another story!

Happy Thanksgiving!
