Meal Planning- Thanksgiving

November 15th, 2016

It’s hard for me to believe that since I last posted here, a majority of the leaves have given us a beautiful show of color and fallen to the ground, leaving barren (yet beautiful in their own right), trees.

As I type this-  the greyness and drizzle of rain has settled into the day.   The view from where I sit, I can see several naked trees swaying to-and-fro to the rhythm of the wind.

Some years I’m unable to spend the holidays with my parents, but on those years we usually do something with friends.    This year-we’re having a small celebration with friends the weekend after Thanksgiving, so I’ve been browsing recipes of something ‘new’ to make.

While browsing, I came across this recipe from Southern Living for Easy Butter Rolls & I’ve decided to make them as one of my contributions.

It makes me smile to think that it was a few short years ago that the idea of making bread in any sort of fashion would be highly intimidating for me, but in that time, I’ve learned a great deal from several inspiring people.

Our gathering will only be five adults and two children, but the idea of spending time together with people who bring joy to my heart, makes me smile.  I’ve offered to bake the turkey, a small ham, now these rolls, plus I’ll whip up a dessert of some sort, and make an Autumn salad of some sort.    A good healthy balance of ‘real’ foods,  shared with friends.

I’m grateful to be able to do that.

What about you?  How will you spend your Thanksgiving?
