Happy Thanksgiving All!
We are going to Cams parents for a long day of eating, drinking, napping and laughing. Okay, we will probably not be able to nap with a 6 month old. Ahhh the good ole days.
To me this holiday is a tad silly. We base it off the Indians and pilgrims which, lets be honest, is not the best story. I believe that as we have evolved so have our beliefs and traditions. Today is about giving thanks for what we have and celebrating our family traditions.
I am thankful for so many things. I could go on and on about my blessings but I will sum it up with my top three.
1. Poppy. A healthy, happy and beautiful baby girl. I will never take for granted her health and being her Mom.
2. Cam. I am so happy that the stars aligned when they did and brought him into my life. He is my best friend. I love him as a father and I love him as my soon to be husband. Poppy and I are lucky gals.
3. Good health. I am very appreciative of being healthy. You never fully understand the power of good health it until you are sick or until a loved one is very sick. I’ve been on both sides of the coin and I count my blessings everyday.
Think about what you are thankful for today and don’t forget it.
I hope you all have a wonderful day surrounded by the special people in your life.

I am obsessed with our crock pot. I use it at least 2-3 times a week. It is a full proof way to cook something warm and tasty! I am going to share over the next few weeks some of my favorite recipes.
First up: Chicken Hominy Soup
1. Add 1 pound of thawed Chicken (I like thighs)
2. Cut the ends off of approx. 15 carrots. Do not peel them.
3. Slice up half an onion. Large pieces work well.
4. Add one can of hominy
5. Now, add Salt, Pepper and Garlic. I dislike over spiced foods. A little goes a long way people!
6. Add all of the items in the crock pot with 1 cup of water.
7. Cover the crock pot with the lid and cook on high for 4 hours.
When the soup is done add cilantro, avocado and maybe a little cheese!
That is it! Easy right? I like to freeze half of the soup for a later date.
