Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday with family and friends. We have so much to be thankful for. I'm not going to elaborate on what I'm personally thankful for but instead say a little something about food!

Growing up I saw my mom put a lot of effort into fixing all my school lunches and making sure we had a home-cooked meal most nights. This is what I'm thankful for now. She instilled that sense of what a home is in me. Cooking and eating at the dinner table is how we bond and share what's important to us. The other day I was looking at a new blog, Food 52, and I really liked their mission and view on food. I'll share it with you (and you can find it here).
"We think cooking is really important — especially now. Over the past decade, many studies and books have shown that children from families who eat together do better in school, that eating "whole" foods is healthier, that eating sustainably will save the environment. But no one has pointed out that the only way to achieve all this in a comprehensive, lasting way is for people to cook.

Because
    If you cook, your family will eat dinner together.
    If you cook, you will naturally have a more sustainable household.
    If you cook, you'll set a lifelong example for your children.
    If you cook, you'll understand what goes into food and will eat more healthily.
    If you cook, you'll make your home an important place in your life.
    If you cook, you'll make others happy.
    If you cook, people will remember you."
To me, this is why we cook.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
