Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I have had a busy week full of good moments. We had a Thanksgiving potluck lunch at work on Thursday, and I made some cranberry sauce to bring to the lunch. I used a recipe from Simply Recipes for the first time and it turned out pretty tasty. I have also been making butternut squash risotto dishes today to bring to Thanksgiving dinners this weekend. Because I am vegetarian, I wanted to offer to provide a dish I can eat as my main and others can eat as their sides with their turkey. I used Maddie Lymburner's vegan butternut squash risotto recipe from her YouTube channel and it is so delicious. I love how it used nutritional yeast which I love and it is such a good alternative to using dairy.

I bought these flowers to bring for my parents for Thanksgiving today. I found them at the Superstore and just loved the pumpkin pot and the detail on the pumpkin.

I love this hand towel I bought in the summer. It has the ingredients list and directions to make a pumpkin pie. I love using festive hand towels in the kitchen around this time of the year. I might try to follow the recipe to make one this year!

I have been working on knitting the second mitten of the fingerless mittens. I have been making steady progress on it this week but had to frog it a couple of times due to dropped stitches which makes it look loose, so I would rather take it apart and make the changes to be happy with how it turns out. I should be done them soon! Then I will focus on sewing up the seams for the Wool and the Gang Farrah Billie Jean top.

I love this time of the year because it reminds me to be thankful for what I have. I love being surrounded by family for our Thanksgiving meal and enjoying the holiday together. I am so thankful for time spent together and the delicious food we share.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving if you celebrate here in Canada. I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Have a great day!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends from your southern neighbors here in the US. I, too, love this time of year. Love the fall feeling - knowing that winter is coming (a season I enjoy), love the holidays that happen during this time and love a quiet and peace of January. Cheers

  2. Have a wonderful and delicious time with your family.

  3. happy thanksgiving!! the dish looks delicious and fun. Glad you had a good time and also that you are knitting the second mitt!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving! That risotto looks so good. I might have to try that with cauliflower rice for a grain-free version. Love the towel!
