We cooked for two days to share the American tradition of eating too much turkey, foods rich in starch and desserts.
It was fabulous!
There are not boxes of stuffing, can of pumpkis or cranberry sauce so everything we devoured was made from scratch. I mean everything. I evaporated my own milk, and boiled and pureed pumpkin for the pumpkin pie and even namde homemade marshmallows to top the candied yams. It was fun, but a LOT of work.
Parker came home from school early because he was pale and broke out with a fever. After a nap he was good to go and played all afternoon with the neighbor's children.
London enjoyed some turkey, yams and mashed potatoes- this girl can EAT!
Aside from all the delicious food, and the time of visiting with our neighbors, we are thankful for where God has us. He is always taking care of us and reminding us how faithful and trustworthy He is.This is part of what God showed me the other day during my morning time with him.
Psalm 34: 8-14 Says:
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. Fear the LORD, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
