At the moment, I’m thankful that it’s barely still Thanksgiving so I can post the cookies I made for today, when we hosted our third annual Thanksgiving for our local relatives. This time I managed to set the table before the guests arrived and also placed a gingerbread cookie on each setting. Grown ups to the left, kids to the right. Duh.
I also made some faux bois gingerbread turkeys (in this context, that’s French for “make your cookies look like wood”)
The cookies were made to match a Thanksgiving decoration my Aunt Sharon made long ago (pictured).
She was a crafty one and her fall projects were some of my favorites. Among a few very important women in my life, she is missed.
I’m thankful for the time I had with her and the way she modeled friendship for me. Two quick things I learned from her: 1) make the call you don’t feel you have the time to make and 2) laugh everyday. Hopefully to tears.
Happy belated Thanksgiving! Hopefully there was plenty of hearty banter in your kitchen today in the frantic rush to get dinner on the table. Thankfully, that Thanksgiving wish came true for me.
