Thanksgiving Faves

One of my favorite holidays, if not thee favorite, is Thanksgiving. Some of my fondest memories are of food prep with my dad the night before, and getting the meal started with my mom the morning of Thanksgiving. We would prep the stuffing at night to allow all the flavors to get comfy & yummy in the baking dish! I used to get my hands in there and at a young age, I was elbow deep. Slathering on the butter and seasoning on the turkey knowing it would be juicy in just a few hours was divine! I had no problem letting mom clean out the cavity though…not my favorite part. Raised by my grandparents (who I refer to as mom & dad) you would think I may have limited memories of my mother around the holidays but the opposite is true. I remember thinking she was a master of the glazed ham. She would make this mustard and brown sugar glaze and I was convinced making it in a ceramic dish made it taste better. It was the perfect blend of sweet, salty & delicious! Its no wonder why I enjoy it so much. What other holiday, or frankly any day of the week, do we focus so much family time on meal prep? We are always so busy, focused on the temporary moments when the forever moments are right there waiting for some love & attention. At 40 I am thankful for the memories I had with my parents now that they are all gone, and for the table I get to set this year to make even more.

Comfort food, warm & fuzzy clothing, cold weather & family. I love Thanksgiving!

Tasty Tuesday

With the colors changing, the temps dropping and the holidays so close it gives me shopping anxiety, I cant help but crave comfort foods. The ones that you reminisce about from your childhood…the kind that you can have over and over again. One of my all time favorites is macaroni and cheese. (Dieters look away) Not the boxed kind with powder, or with a pouch you have to cut open and squeeze. I am talking about the stove top, oven baked, tender noodles with lots of rich & creamy melted cheese. (Seriously, look away) At times, mixing it up with crumbled bacon. (You were warned!)

Well I found what could very well be the yummiest mac & cheese ever. While cruising this interweb thing we all know and love, I came across a site that was not only witty and charming, but full of recipes I want to try. I couldnt help but gravitate toward the mac and I am soooo glad I did!
