I hope all my American readers had a fantastic Thanksgiving yesterday! I love the idea of sitting and making time to take stock of what you appreciate, it’s a really beautiful sentiment. With that in mind and from the other side of the Atlantic, here is my addition to the plethora of lists circling the internet today of a couple of things I am thankful for:
Being able to visit friends across the country to celebrate their joint 30th birthday last weekend.
Finally getting to grab lunch at KERB a couple of weeks ago as I always managed to visit London on days it wasn’t on.
Getting the opportunity to assist behind the scenes of part of an episode of the new James Martin cooking show.
New Moleskine notebooks, because writing on the first page of a new book is one of the simple joys of life.
The London skyline, because I still get butterflies whenever I see it.
When I was asked to write a Thanksgiving themed recipe for the Daily Quirk, I had leftovers in mind. One of my favourite things about big family meals is the leftovers the next day. My Mom covers the entire dining room table with cold slices of roasted meat, both hot and cold vegetables and multiple types of potato. The whole family gorges themselves on multiple servings before spending the rest of the afternoon picking at chocolates. These macaroni cups are perfect as an extra dish at a buffet table as they are already divided into single serving portions.
