Hi everyone! Happy Thanksgiving to all of the Americans among us and Happy Thursday to everyone else. Today is hard for me, I am both really happy and sad. This time last year I was waking up with my husband at my parent's house and getting ready for a day of celebrating and relaxing with my family. We were lucky enough to have a bunch of our friends from the UK visiting for Thanksgiving as well, so it really was a whole day of merriment and games and lots and lots of food. I am so grateful and thankful we had the opportunity to do that last year as this year is so starkly different. I am really sad not to be in Pennsylvania with my family today, but I am happy and grateful that they are all healthy and we will still be able to call them later to be as "together" as we can be. My husband is great and is still helping me to cook a Thanksgiving feast today - even if it's just for 2.. and a half.. of us I know we will be able to celebrate together again and I hope everyone can remain healthy in the meantime.
I really do feel for anyone going into the holiday season feeling isolated and lonely, it's such a difficult time and I hope that places like here will feeling welcoming and able to help get support!
Wrapping this up though.. I wanted to share a stuffing recipe that I am trying out today. My husband never had this type of stuffing before coming to Thanksgiving in the USA and I thought it would be great to recreate today. delish.com/uk/cooking/recip... is the link if you want to try it. It's very simple, covering bread cubes with lots of herbs, chicken stock, eggs and baking to create a delicious side dish. It's my favourite part of the Thanksgiving meal and I am especially excited for it this year as carbs have been a girl's best friend during pregnancy.
What is everyone else cooking or eating this week/weekend? I hope everyone has a really lovely weekend and takes care
