Thankful



For more than I could list here, for friends and family like you all, for cows, and border collies, and turkey, and dressing and pickles and gravy.......and cranberries!

What with all the "thank a farmer" messages circulating on Facebook this week I thought it would be fun to actually thank one of the farmers who made our wonderful Thanksgiving meal possible. So here is a link, and I sent them an email to say thanks as well.

Thank you Habelman Family Farm for growing the red, tangy cranberries for our homemade cranberry sauce. From our farm to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!



I also am thankful for all the truckers, those still out on the road today and those who are lucky enough to have made it home for the holiday, who helped make our meal possible. Since we have had a trucker close to our family we have begun to have an idea of what they go through to move our goods from place to place.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving up there. I love the cranberry sauces. We made ours with pears, ginger and cinnamon this year. Pretty tasty. Still only get about half the folks to try it. That canned cranberry gel has sure ruined it for a lot of people!

I love the similar texture and color of those two pictures! A cranberry sunset. Perfect.

Hope your holiday was wonderful and that you're putting your feet up :0)

Jeffro, thank you...and the same to you.

Paul, we did and thanks. Your sauce sounds good! I would certainly try it. I will eat the canned stuff and serve it often as the boss loves it, but I infinitely prefer homemade.

Cathy, It was and thank you...hope yours was too.
