MEMORABLE
THANKSGIVING
DISHES

I brought a sweet potato dish
to Thanksgiving dinner,
featuring red, white and purple
sweet potatoes.
(Recipe follows.)

o  Peel and dice sweet potatoes
(mixed colors)
o  Toss with avocado oil
o  Season with chopped oregano & thyme
o  Add grated fresh ginger (to taste)
o  Fresh ground pepper and kosher salt

Bake at 375˚(F) in large flat pan
for 50-minutes.

NOTE:  Everyone voted for my sister's
home-made apple and pumpkin pies
as tastiest dish!

GARDEN GLOW
LIGHT SHOW

Thanksgiving Eve . . .
a beautiful snowfall . . .
and the opening holiday light show
at Missouri Botanical Garden.

It's just what I needed
to turn my thoughts away
from the recent riots & flames
in our town . . .

to the joy of the holiday season ahead.

Find the light
to make your holidays bright.
(Share the wonder.)

PEACEFUL FLAMES

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that."

                                  - Martin Luther King, Jr.


(Light a candle for peace.
Let your love shine.)

GRAND JURY DECIDES

And the people take to the streets.

The Ferguson, Missouri police killing
is bringing a lot of issues out in public.

People are afraid.
We've got work to do here.

Peace.
And no guns!

SHOPPING FOR
THANKSGIVING DINNER

I love shopping farmer's markets
late in the season,
just in time for Thanksgiving.

Picked fresh, no sprays, all natural.

Let's see what shall we get
for Thanksgiving dinner . . .

o Sage & pumpkins (of course)

o Jerusalem artichokes & peppers (why not?)

o Bok choy (oh yes)

o  Sweet potatoes (a must!)

o  Turnips & carrots (never been sweeter)

o  Persimmons (perfectly ripe)

o  Oyster mushrooms (yum)

o  Organic Granny Smith apples
(ugly but sooo delicious)

So thankful for local farmers markets.
Time for a feast!
