I could do a whole, “I’m thankful for my family and friends” post but, let’s face it, this is FoodPorn! You don’t care about that stuff. It’s about the food.
I’m thankful for:
My meal at the French Laundry
My tastebuds having decided to like sausage and salt-cured pork
Being able to pick fresh herbs from my garden
Being able to pick tomatoes from my garden in the summer
The weather here that lets me have a year round garden
Wine…Ridge and Kermit Lynch, you are my friends
My husband’s homebrew
My son love of anchovies and sardines (and olives, capers and salumi)
Not being allergic to anything except turkey and that’s minor (even at Thanksgiving)
Being taught to mushroom hunt so I can enjoy backwoods-gourmet meals
My grandpa teaching me how to keep a knife sharp (he was a butcher)
Whoever thought to put bubbles in water
Wine (yes, twice)
Planning trips around restaurants even if they are sometimes disappointing
Having people come to this site and allow me to blab at you about my tastes!!
Have a great holiday meal, eat well, hopefully locally, with people you love. The food tastes just that much better when surrounded by love.
