I am thankful for my friends and family. I am very fortunate to have friends from Los Angeles to New York --in between and beyond. A lot of my friends I have had for over 20 years. I am also thankful to the internet so that my friends whom I live far away from and I can have a daily connection. I try to be a good friend, and I am fortunate to have friends who are very good to me.
I am thankful that my husband gets me fattening gifts like this cookie and chocolate covered strawberry gift from SHARI'S BERRIES . It is a wonderful website full of delicious, blissful sweets.
Shari's has gourmet cookies---delicious. They ship anywhere in the U.S. and I have always been pleased with them....but hello I am always pleased with chocolate and cookies.
I am also thankful for HANCOCK GOURMET LOBSTER who provided my Thanksgiving dinner straight from Maine. We had lobster this Thanksgiving because I felt like being NON traditional. We had lobster rolls and lobster pot pies. It was delicious. Hancock has wonderful, fresh food and fast reliable shipping. When you cannot get to Boston or Maine, Hancock can bring a little East Coast culinary bliss to your doorstep. I just placed another order from them today. Boston, Mass has the best lobster rolls I have ever had. You can find lobster rolls just about everywhere in Boston. I am going to Boston tomorrow morning for some business and the first thing I am doing when I get off the plane is getting in a cab and heading to Quincy Market to eat lobster rolls till I am full. I really do not know anywhere in the Chicago area with good lobster rolls, but my favorite place in NYC for lobster rolls is Ed's Lobster Bar. Ed's is located at 222 Lafayette Street in New York City and the website is ED'S LOBSTER BAR . I am a tad obsessed with lobster rolls, and I could seriously talk about them for 3 more paragraphs.....but I won't. I will just say that they are good and if you have never had one, you must try one before you die.
Lastly, I am thankful for my peaceful place in the world. Sometimes my life seems so busy and hectic and I feel overwhelmed....then I look out my back door and see the geese landing in my pond and I realize how blessed I am for all the great things and people in my life.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and here is wishing everyone a beautiful holiday season.
