We went to Connecticut for Thanksgiving to celebrate with dear friends, who hosted us graciously. We had a lovely Thanksgiving meal that was purely vegetarian–quite the treat for two vegetarians amongst large families of meat eaters. Both of us each had a must Thanksgiving recipe, both of which were “salads” as they like to call them in the Midwest. A pretzel salad (a crust of butter and crushed pretzels, a layer of cool whip and cream cheese, topped with strawberry jello and chunks of strawberries) and what we call Acini de Petri. The table was decorated, the food was delicious, and the company was divine.
I’ve got more images to post from our trip, but I’ll save those for later.
Thanks for all the kind words on my last post. It was a really hard week, especially to follow such a lighthearted trip to the East Coast. But, I’m happy to be here. And very thankful for all that I have.
