I just really love Thanksgiving it is one of my favorite holidays. I also love the 4th of July. Anyway back to what I really love about Thanksgiving is the food, and the family. It is a time of eating and sharing company with others. No stress about presents yet. I love cooking once and eating for days to come. I love being thankful and showing my appreciation to my family.
I love my family so much that today I made split pea and ham soup, out of the ham left overs and what was left on the veggie tray. The ham bone still has enough fat on it that I stuck it in the freezer to make with beans in the weeks to come.
In have not had to eat out all week, I have had turkey, turkey sandwiches, ham, ham sandwiches, stuffing, fruit salad, jello salad..... my daughter ate all the mashed potatoes and green bean bake, but that is fine with me.
I made 5 pans of cinnamon rolls and took them to work on Thanksgiving day to share with the poor souls working the holiday. They were a big hit, there were not any left the next day when I got to work.
I am Thankful for my family and friends.... I am thankful for my job, and thankful I have learned how to budget, pay off debt, and build an emergency fund. I am thankful for my house and the great neighborhood in which I live. I am thankful that I live in a wonderful country.... and most of all this year I am thankful that my son is home safe from Iraq.
I hope each and everyone of you had a wonderful holiday.
Have a Fabulous & Frugal Day!!!
