Hi Substantial Living!
I love Thanksgiving. It is my favorite holiday because it brings people together regardless of religion, ethnicity, status, for one simple reason…gratitude… through eating together. .
When I think about how to create the perfect experience, I keep in mind the word “gratitude” and how it can be incorporated into the whole experience from the actual food to style. Healthy is a state of mind as much as anything else.
This year, instead of a menu card, I’m going to write personalized gratitude notes for each of my guests. My whole family is in town and an intimate dinner is in order in Russian Hill. So exciting!
It’s easy and simple, and is part of a Substantial meal as much as the food. Often is hard to tell people how much they mean to us, so let’s use this opportunity to write a sentence or two to each person to say a simple, “Thank you for being in my life, you’re awesome”. It’s part of grace and will give your thanksgiving a beautiful tone…
How we eat, reflects how we live. Happy Thanksgiving from Substantial Living! XO
