i'm thankful today for good, quality food. for choosing to spend our money on local, organic or delicious food. for growing a great garden in the summer (still harvesting kale, carrots, beets, onions and maybe a few brussels). for time spent cooking and exploring recipes.
[it's totally hilarious that this is my gratitude for the day-- half of our dinner tonight was highly mediocre- awesome roasted asparagus and totally blah mac&cheese with shrimp. ah well. you win some, you lose some. and something under the burner caught on fire. i had flames. in the kitchen. and our fire alarms are wired straight to the fire dept. thankfully i got the fan out and calmed things down. and i laughed through the entire experience].
