November is full of holidays:
and these are just some of the more light-hearted ones I came across, there were tons more when I searched online for “November holidays”.
Etsy Bloggers Team question of the week: Most countries around the world have a day set aside to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. Here in the US, it's Thanksgiving. What do you celebrate wherever you live and how do you celebrate?
I have a different answer for this every year. It’s been many years since I’ve celebrated with family since this always seems to be a crazy weekend for traveling. Most Thanksgivings are celebrated with the four of us, neighbors or close friends here at home.
Frankly, I’d rather visit with distant family when there aren’t holidays to think about preparing special foods or gifts for. No matter what, those things always add an element of stress for me. But, since holidays are when the kids have vacation from school, it’s usually unavoidable.
Well, there’s one thing, that no matter where we are, or who we’re with on Thanksgiving that is always the same. I make Sweet Potato Streusel Squares. They’re fattening. Decadent. Oh, so good. The recipe is from Bon Appétit Magazine, 1995 and that’s a link to it on epicurious.com.
Not surprised to hear my holiday memories revolve around food, are you? I would love to hear if you have favorite recipes, too, or if you try this one. One of these days I’m going to have to make a non-dairy version so I can enjoy it some more myself.
