Canning beets was part of the preparation yesterday for the Thanksgiving dinner we were serving at our house today. This make sense if I also tell you that our refrigerator is full to the gills with crop share veggies, and I needed to make room for the anticipated copious leftovers.
Becky, Mike, Max and Claire spent the afternoon and evening with us, grateful to be together and grateful to have wonderful food and laughter and hugs. I was also grateful that my refrigerator was no longer full of beets when it came time to put away the leftovers!
We are incredibly fortunate to have the problem of a too-full refrigerator. I know that many are struggling to have enough while I have so much. Tomorrow Wilson and I will sit over coffee and write checks to the charities we support, and I’ll keep this in mind as we decide how much to give this season.
I hope you are finding much to be thankful about this weekend.
