Giving thanks

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

It was Canadian Thanksgiving yesterday and whilst sitting in my favourite coffee shop, I found myself reflecting on all the things in my life I have to be thankful for.

Wonderful friends and familia
My health
Amazing housemates and a fantastic place to call home
A successful two night run of my show with my beautiful & talented best friend
More opportunities to sing and do what I love in the coming months
Starting a new job tomorrow(!)

I am grateful for all of this and all the little things that make my life pretty stellar. 

I celebrated Thanksgiving with a yummy lunchy of lentil loaf and kale salad

I used a bit more flour in the lentil loaf and omitted the breadcrumbs and it turned out great. Reminded me of Thanksgiving stuffing, which is one of my favourite things. I can't wait to eat leftovers of the kale salad all week; the dressing is divine and kale is always wonderful.

There were also pumpkin tarts...

I had plans to share them with friends (like the lovely Rebecca!) over the course of the week, and tarts are just a little easier to transport than pie.

They turned out really well and were given a definite thumbs up from all who gave them a go.

Very thankful. Very nourished. Very happy.

Beautiful. Living in the UK means that Thanksgiving slips by the way side. I'm often asked how we go about celebrating it or what it's all about and my answer is always "Spending time with family, enjoying delicious food, and remembering why I'm so damn lucky."

Happy Belated Thanksgiving. It is a good time to reflect. We all have things and people to be grateful for and it's nice to be reminded of that. You have a great list here!
