A Working Thanksgiving Can Be Great Fun!

Well, my Thanksgiving was a working one. Mind you, I was working at home, in my pajamas, but working none the less. My Thanksgiving meal was a series of recipes that I was putting together, believe it or not, for next year's Thanksgiving column. It was so much fun eating and taking pictures as I went. I started at 8 am with pumpkin cheesecake and whipped cream with my coffee, followed by roasted brussel sprouts, drizzled with meyer lemon olive oil at around 10 am. Next came a banana bread, cranberry sauce, and sweet potatoes at around noon. I took a break, reading a book by the fire and getting ready for stuffing and turkey. It was 3 pm when the turkey was done and it was so good with the sausage stuffing. I was cleaned up and ready to pick up my children at the airport around 5 pm. There was a beautiful hour before leaving that I just sat and smiled at my day. Who would have ever thought that Thanksgiving would be wonderful with only myself as company. Life is full of surprises! I did have one more piece of pumpkin cheesecake before I left for the airport, yum! Pick up was effortless and when I brought my precious cargo home safe and sound, we preceded to have another Thanksgiving meal at 9 pm. I will remember this Thanksgiving Day for many years to come!
