Many people I know combine the Thanksgiving holiday and month of November with the Christmas holiday...nothing wrong with that, it is- after all, the season of giving, counting , and sharing our blessings.
However, I often feel that the 'tree', the lights, sparkle, and gifting over-shadow the reality of 'Thanksgiving.' And if not at your house...good for you, if you think maybe yes...make this month really more about Thanksgiving...real thanks-giving.
This is the holiday we, at Sage Hill, choose to connect with the earth, the land, and the foods that spring from her bounty to grace our table.
We've moved forward in a mighty way since the first Thanksgiving feast-which was truly about being grateful, for survival, food for a meal, and friendly neighbors to help with both processes.
The saying is " you can't go back " and to a great degree this is so...but, we can remember, reenact, and adopt the basic concept of real " thanksgiving."
For a stress free holiday...keep it simple-simple foods, simple list of activities, simple prayer.....to our maker and this awesome universe he created for our survival...'thank you' from the heart covers it all.
To free up kitchen stress and oven space...cook your turkey on the grill, it is wonderful, slow cooked and hassle free ~yummy!
Visit the Sage Hill Farms website for all your herb and spice needs...after all, if you use big box store seasonings on fresh foods...not a good idea ~
We thank you-and Happy Holiday's~
