Menu for November 22nd – 28th
My favorite time of the year! Not only do we join this week with millions of others to give thanks to a loving and gracious Lord, but we do it sitting in front of an abundance of food.  Praise God for His blessings!

I was tasked with bringing green beans for our family Thanksgiving – I think they’re taking pity on the pregnant woman… I don’t feel like I’m going to be contributing much!  Also, it’s my birthday on Friday, so the menu has a possibility of changing, if my husband decides to treat me to a dinner out! 😉

I’m attempting to use things we already have at home, since going shopping with two little boys ends up  being complicated with the addition of holiday rush…  Our kale is gorgeous, the swiss chard is still going strong (I am going to let some of it bolt and save the seed – this has been the BEST swiss chard, and the longest lasting!), and we have some sweet little butternut squash just coming off the vines now!  Also, our lettuce is doing quite well – and the bitterness seems to fade if I give it a day in the fridge after cutting 😉
