Giving thanks with a grateful heart…

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving day with your loved ones; full of fancy feasting and lively conversations. I spent the day with my family and everyone outdid themselves – as usual (see pictures below). I experimented with a couple tasty new recipes that I will share with you soon.
I am so thankful this year for God’s mercy, love and faithfulness; He provides abundantly! I am thankful for my family, my friends (this includes YOU!), my church and the fact that I am about 3/4 done with my nursing program – Yikes!!!
I am thankful to live in this wonderful, free country where we can live (and blog) peacefully. I’d love to know about your thanksgiving day and any traditions that you have.
If any of my recipes graced your families table this year, let me know how it went over. I hope these snaps bring you ideas for the upcoming Christmas holiday!
Green beans with almonds:
Svetlana’s Stuffed mushrooms (ooh la la!):
Aunt Anna’s Tortellini Salad:
Staples – (I hope you don’t ask what these next two pictures are, even though the second one is from an undesirable angle)
I actually scooted these onto the edge of my plate and ate them last. Shrimp is my weakness.
Meat Nalesniki (on the to-do list):
The red cabbage “wreath salad” – I’ll be posting this one:
“Wreath Salad” After mixing:
This jello will find it’s way onto the blog as well.
An experiment gone good (except for my horrendous decorating skills)! Stay tuned..
The guys didn’t make it into this picture; sorry!
Ok, now on to Christmas (my favorite holiday for which I start counting down immediately after New Years). More than a little obsessed? Heck YES!!
