Happy Thanksgiving!

This post is brought to you from a food induced coma.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Maksim and I sure did.  We went to visit my “sister” (my best friends) and my god daughter.

Our day started bright an early and we drove for 6 hours to NH.  The drive was very much fun, a bit of traffic, but mostly fun, because we discover Netflix on the phone.  I was going between passing out and watching Grey’s Anatomy.

My part of the menu included white chocolate cranberry cookies, creamed spinach and butternut squash soup. We also had traditional Thanksgiving dishes like turkey, mashed potatoes, homemade cranberry souse, grilled veggies, not so traditional cocktail shrimp, and very traditional to Russian table crab salad and smoked fish.  Everything was very yummy!!!

For me thanksgiving is less about traditional pilgrim-indian theme, and more about been with people I love and to remember tyhe things I am thankful for.  I am thankful for people in my life. I am thankful for my wonderful husband.  I am thankful for my sister and her amazing family, for her always been there for me.  I am thankful for my parents, for their support and love.  I am thankful for my heath. I am thankful for been part of the crochet design community.  I am following for my students, for my fans and my followers.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  What are you thankful for?

1.  Cookies were a giant hit at work.  They disappeared in less then two hours.  I was advised to bring them more often.

2.  The evening was filled with last minute preparations: finishing up a pair of mittens for Arianna, worrying that the hats I made her won’t fit, weaving in ends, double checking that cookies are packed, arguing how much clothes to bring for 2 days, and how early to leave.

3.  We have different definitions of bright an early.  For me it’s early and not necessary bright yet.

4.  We have a 6 hour drive ahead of us tomorrow.  Well 6 hours do not include Thanksgiving traffic.  So we will see.
