November Gratitude

It’s November! November means my birthday is now 11 days away (13th- woo woo!). November means Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away. Thanksgiving signifies gratefulness. Kate from for the love of breakfast is running a little thing she is calling, November Gratitude Nuggets, where each day in November she will post one thing she is grateful for. I like it.

November 1st Gratitude: The Giants won the World Series!!!!! (I live near San Francisco, they are my team!)

November 2nd Gratitude: Great friends with amazing recipes that I will be trying out tonight.

Other things I am grateful for at this moment is being able to make and eat amazing dishes, full of flavor and creativity. And help with making these dishes.

Spicy Cajon Marinated Shrimp
GIANT Spiced Bison Meatballs
Beautiful Mixed Greens
Creamy Blended Raw Cesar Dressing (from Natalie Rose's Raw Detox book)

Roasted Cajon Japanese Sweet Potato Fries (pictured pre-baked)

Plated to Perfection

And SMOTHERED with unpictured dijon mustard and ketchup (I know... the chef wasn't exactly thrilled. 😉 )

This meal was enjoyed with a loved one (hi bf!), Jack the Pumpkin King, and the Giants winning the World Series. Life, at those moments, couldn’t get much better. And for that I am grateful. 🙂

What recipe will you be trying out soon that you have been neglecting to try?
