Dinner is On!

This is what we are having tonight.

This is what we are having tonight.

The neat think about having a garden is, well wait. One of the neat things about having a garden is that you can go outside in the afternoon and do your  “grocery shopping”. Today I picked a bunch of green beans, a few radishes, and couple of beets from the bed that I planted in September. I also have some cucumbers left from Sunday’s harvest. There is left over pork roast in the fridge and some sweet potato casserole. The sweet potatoes are also from the garden. My mom used my recipe for peach cobbler and used a jar of peaches that I bottled in May. So we have that for dessert. There is also (as usual) goat milk for those of us who enjoy milk with our dinner or dessert.

I looked at all the food that I put on the table tonight and was just overwhelmed with thankfulness for such abundance. I simply had to share it with you.

    Trish and I decided that we would replicate the first Thanksgiving . We will enjoy a large dinner complete with Turkey and have it with Indians. We will leave for Casino Arizona around 3
    for their huge buffet. This time they will do the cooking and we shall feast with them though we may not identify many of them. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing about your garden. It’s not something I’m good at. Right now I have a great excuse, we got 12″ of snow this past week. It’s melting though. Wish I had green thumbs. Mine are black. I do have an aloe vera plant that is thriving and I don’t know how to deal with that. It takes up the entire top of my chest-of-drawers.

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

    • Bless you Susan. I have lived in snow country. But I find that I keep coming back to the desert. I told Steve that if I every moved, I would definitely need a green house.
      I will post some pics just for you during this 4 day holiday
