2 Potato Gratin

November 19, 2012

Did anyone go to the grocery store yesterday?  Wow, Thanksgiving fever!  Since I am actually not hosting the holiday this year, I began thinking of what I am thankful for to distract me from the menacing faces of all shoppers with a purpose.

I’m thankful for my family.

I’m thankful for my friends.

I’m thankful for my health.

I’m thankful for Louie! That’s my new puppy, even though he peed in the house twice yesterday:)

I’m thankful that I can share my thoughts, and oh yeah and my recipes with you.

I’m thankful for my patients when my kids are not angels:)

I’m thankful for quiet nights at home.

I’m thankful for all the things I have, even those I don’t need:)

I’m thankful to watch my kids grow into amazing adults!

I’m thankful for my kitchen table, the place where my family becomes one.

Take a little time this week, and think of the things you are thankful for.  Even in the hardest times, being thankful fells great!!!

I’m also thankful for this Potato Gratin recipe I tried for you.
