Instead of kale, I used a head of Rainbow Chard. Instead of cheddar I used a mix of Mexican cheeses (the kind you’d buy in a bag at the supermarket). And I added 1 Tablespoon of Mexican Chili Powder.

But only sometimes. This is certainly one of those occasional meals, when something special is happening.
And it was a special occasion, because Chelsea came to visit.
Sundays are always a favorite day around here. It’s the only day of the week Dan and I have off together. As such, it can end up getting cluttered with various obligations and chores.
Sometimes, though, it’s just quiet and lazy.
I think my Thanksgiving is best summed up mostly in images.
I took pictures as much as I could during the process until things were really out of hand.
Considering this was my first Thanksgiving that I personally hosted, I would say it went rather well.

With the onset of Fall and colder weather, I’ve had big pots of warm, filling food on my mind. The kind of food that just makes you relax and revel in the moment as soon as it hits your tongue. You sit back, you chew, you take a deep breath, and you feel like winter can’t be all that bad.
I will be singing a different tune by February.
For now, though, I am sated. We literally ate lasagna from Wednesday to about Sunday. The leftover are finally, sadly, finished, but the season of big, hot, satisfying meals is not.
