It's the holiday season. Time to be thankful for everything we have and remember all the important people in our lives. I'm so happy to be able to work with the National Pork Board and celebrate #Porksgiving, a time for giving back, with pork, to those we are thankful for, and sharing meals with family and friends.
For me, it's family. Especially, my mom. She had a bit of an "episode" a few weeks back. That is her word, not mine. The "episode" was actually a mini stroke. She is going to be fine. Actually, it was kind of a blessing. The doctors discovered an issue with her heart because of it and she's taking some new medicine and feeling better than ever.
I'm so thankful that she is going to fine, but, I'm also thankful for her love of food and her constant support of my little food blog. She adores food (mostly sweets) and she is never ending with her ideas, recipes and of course, her love.
