thankful on thanksgiving

lobster tail

Thanksgiving Day for me is the perfect transition to the holiday season ~ being thankful today builds a foundation for the coming days and weeks.  Trimming the tree, lighting the lights, I guess it all starts today.

I’m so grateful for abundance when it does arrive.  I’ve had not-so-abundant times in the past and know what it’s like to go without.  This year we have been fortunate and decided that lobster tails were going to be a special purchase.  After recently becoming non-turkey-eaters, this seemed like a holiday entree extraordinaire.

Talk about festive ~ broiled lobster tails!  I made a cornbread topping ~ you could use homemade that’s been dried or go with good old Pepperidge Farm Cornbread stuffing mix, which is what I did today.

It made a perfect topping for the lobster ~ with a crimini mushroom gravy and some mashed yukon golds, it was a truly great meal and a great day with loved ones.
