Ours was a simple affair — Thanksgiving Dinner for two, served in the late afternoon or whenever I got done messing in the kitchen — whichever came first.
Earlier in the day, I’d dug out the ol’ $5 box of rummage sale dishes and set the table with a “leaf motif.” No frills. Just favorites. :)
Crudités (per se) consisted of dill pickle spears, my Grandma’s spiced pickled beets, and the cutest lil’ pickle flowers ya ever did see. (I asked The Man Of Few Words if he minded that I cut up his beloved gherkins and he replied, “A pickle is a pickle, no matter how you slice it.” Gotta love that man. xo)
The pièce de résistance was Honey Orange Glazed Ham. (I’m tellin’ ya, the glaze was soooo good, I served some on the side and ate it with a spoon!)
All in all, it was a lovely dinner. We sat. We savored. We shared what we were thankful for. We reminisced about family…
Did we miss ’em? Yup.
But they were right there with us, in our memories and our hearts.
And in case you’re wondering, “What, no turkey and cranberries?!” — that’s today’s project. I’ve got people to feed and food to share!
And I’m so very thankful for that.
Enjoying the bounty of God’s blessings,
