Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week?

I’m not exactly sure how this happened… It seems like just yesterday we were dropping the kids off on their first day of school and now it’s late November.

Life rushes by so fast sometimes, it’s easy to miss the good parts.

I think that’s what Thanksgiving is all about, especially in our day and age. Taking time to stop the madness for a day (and hopefully for a long weekend) to focus on gratefulness.

We live in hectic, yet indulgent, society where people are used to getting exactly what they want, the moment they want it.

And if they don’t? Temper tantrum.

Yet being grateful, even for the little blessings in life, changes our whole entire outlook on our circumstances, family, country, and world.

We try to simplify our lives as much as possible. Not allowing ourselves to be sucked into unnecessary business, makes it easier to stop and see beauty in each day.

This is true even in cooking… Not all dishes have to be complicated to be spectacular.

  3. Roast  the carrots in the oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, zest one orange and mince the garlic.
