I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday!
We threw together a last minute traditional Thanksgiving dinner with a trip to the farmers market on Wednesday to get a ton of seasonal root vegetables to make this. It was yummy and I don't think I have ever even had a rutabaga before. We also threw in some potatoes that Sollie grew in our garden! It was our super local,home grown and seasonal side dish.
These are Sollie' home grown potatoes, he is especially fond of the tiny "snowman" potato, we didn't cook that one.
Ben looked super happy when he walked out of the bakery with this, however it looked way better that in tasted. We are going to try turning it into french toast.
Being a vegetarian and living 3,000 miles from my extended family I am not really a huge fan of Thanksgiving and would rather just feast on Indian take out (we did this last year). But Thanksgiving is my Husband's favorite holiday and he arranged his work schedule so he could be home, so we did it his way this year. Although very last minute(we were grocery shopping at 10pm on Wednesday)it came together quite nicely.
I was thankful that Ben worked through the weekend last week so he could take this week off to help with the kids so I could participate in a holiday craft show at my son's school. It was a really nice change of pace for me, to get out of my house by myself for several hours. I sell my crafts mainly online I don't usually get to interact face to face with the people who purchase my goods. It was very nice to hear positive comments on my work. It was a lot of sitting around but I feel it was totally worth it. As a stay at home mom with out a regular paycheck it feels really good to contribute financially. The first day sales were a bit slow but the second day was a huge blessing for me. Each sale from HumbleLuna means a lot to my family and helps me provide Christmas gifts for my kids each year. Despite all the stress leading up to it, I feel it was a success and I hope I can participate again next year.
