    We had our 2nd Thanksgiving meal on Sunday evening. We needed to have leftovers of our own...
    Yours looked yummy.

  7. That just looks delicious. I love vegetables. You are such a gourmet cook, and all your recipes sound so healthy. Thank you for the lovely pictures and recipes.

  8. We thank for the very beautiful recipes, somebodies we created also him we were thanked.
    With the occasion to you I say that:
    In my country 3.000 years before, we had the word hospitality it had important place in the heart of persons.
    They too much believed in the hospitality, that created a god to her price. The '' Xenjo Zeys '' (the god of foreigners), that means First between the twelve Gods, that protect foreigner but also those that them entertain.

    Hi LaDonna,
    I have a quick question. I have just started cooking in a healthy way with all natural products. Do you find it to cost more to cook this way? I have found that my food shopping bill has gone way up but that is ok. I know it is better for us. I think part of the cost is I am having to start fresh a buy my beginning items. Like oils,grains and seasoning. I guess you could called it the staples. Also Bob's red Mills now has gluten free oats.
    Have a blessed day.

  12. Looks like you folks had a wonderful feast !

  13. What a gorgeous spread! And delicious too, I'm sure.
