HOME OR THANKFUL
I am thankful for many, many things, for I've been richly blessed in my life.
Waldorf salad is a dish we serve only at Thanksgiving. This salad was a Thanksgiving tradition in my family when I was growing up and I've carried it on through the years. It reminds me of times past and of people no longer with us. I am thankful that my children and their significant others were gathered 'round this Thanksgiving and that we had so much fun together.
IN THE KITCHEN
My daughter and I cooked up a storm! literally! We made a variety of truffles, sticky buns, nut cookies (above), and pastel cream wafers. This was, of course, in addition to the amazing amount of dishes made for the Thanksgiving feast itself-- cooked by me, my daughter, and my daughter's boyfriend. I should add here that my son cooked us a delicious Mexican feast Sunday night.
kitties who came to play--Tigra and Bunkie, my daughter's kitties, had quite an adventurous time with places to explore and resident cats to contend with. I made all 4 cats catnip toys--pieces of sweater stuffed completely with catnip. Oh the flipping and flopping! the chewing and kicking! These were the most fun ever! We found that they all liked playing with small branches, too. Who knew?!
Shingleback sparkling shiraz from Mclaren Vale. mmmm! This was imbibed while making some of the above cookies.
My husband, daughter, and I visited the Cincinnati Art Museum on Saturday. I liked these lit-up trees against the frosted backdrop of bare-branched trees and the reflection in the mirrored panel on the right. The inside trees glow with warmth and cheer in contrast to their surroundings. serenity.
