With Thanksgiving fast approaching, it’s nice to acknowledge the things or people you are thankful for. It goes without saying, of course that I am thankful for my health and my family (and the health of my family). I’m thankful for my husband, he’s an amazing man and a wonderful father to our daughter. I’m immensely thankful for our daughter, who is such an angel and a pleasure (though you do occasionally glimpse some horns poking out from that halo!).
I’m also thankful for my friend Morgan. So Morgan, this post is for you! I met Morgan when my husband and I first moved to town. She and her husband were moving into their condo a few doors down at the same time we were moving into ours. We would chat outside and quickly became good friends. She’s been there through a lot with me and I always know I can count on her friendship. She comes over and even when I’m cooking something totally strange-sounding, she does try it, hesitant sometimes though. But she tries it!
She also brought some prized goodies to me the other day, and since this IS a cooking blog I thought I’d share some pictures of them with you. Last weekend was the annual Pecan Festival in Colfax, LA and she picked up a pecan pie and a 1 lb. bag of shelled pecans and brought them to me. Mmmmm, I’m already planning what I can make with those pecans….as for the pie – well it didn’t last long, it’s gone!
Thanks for being a great friend, NeNe (what my daughter calls her)!
