Tomato 🍅 Tuesday Update | Thanksgiving Maters’!

The week of Thanksgiving is finally here! The menu is planned and the guest list is finalized. There’s only 1 change to the menu… An addition. A very rare addition for a Thanksgiving in fact…

LATE season tomatoes 🍅 have a wonderful taste! Especially at Thanksgiving dinner 🦃 They aren’t as big as Summer tomatoes, but, they may be better?

When your getting to the end of the Tomatoes 🍅 it’s very important to do 2 things! #1 – Don’t Panic! #2 – Savor every last bite!

Like the song says – There’s only 2 things money can’t buy… True Love ❤️ and Homegrown Tomatoes 🍅

Happy Thanksgiving 🦃

Sunday Reflections…

It’s that time again. Time to make the annual menu for Thanksgiving dinner with family. It’s really simple to communicate with everyone nowadays via text and email to figure out the big questions – What, When & Where… But this year, for many of us, there’s another big question… How?! Some are distancing because of health reasons, some to keep the crowd size down as a preventative, and some are just staying out and requested a plate of food be dropped off for them… A very different Thanksgiving indeed… But still, I’m Thankful!

Now all that is done… Dinner at my house! I got ham again 😊 and sweet potatoes 🍠… and pecan pie 🥧… And, the responsibility of giving the Thanksgiving prayer 🙏🏻 How to put into words how I feel about all that I have to be Thankful for… PS; it’s a LOT! And yes, I’m Thankful for the opportunity!

Would you like Thanksgiving Ham? Mark I am. I love fixing Thanksgiving Ham! I love to fix it here or there, I love to fix it anywhere. I love to fix it with homemade jelly. Then I put it in my belly 😂

Sunday Reflections…

Have you been outside today? Wow! It’s like a warm Spring morning out there! So beautiful. I went out and scavenged through what’s left of the tomato plants and found a few more good ones! 🍅💥 I love it ❤️ I brought them in and added them to the large group on the counter. Jo has put out some beautiful Thanksgiving decorations and was taking pictures and trying out some new editing apps. When I looked at them, I really got the feeling of Home. Seeing her simple picture made me feel good. My morning has been made 😊 Now, back to Sunday Brunch…

Jo took this picture while playing with her new camera… it was just a practice photo for her, as she tries out new editing apps. I thought wow, what a great shot of our kitchen as I’m getting ready to fix breakfast 🥞 The calm before the storm 😊❤️



”The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946. That is not very long ago. Until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard.

Have a great day! Get Outside!
