Happy Thanksgiving!


If you’re celebrating tomorrow, I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday! We’ll be driving this year, to spend time with family in Idaho—I’m excited to see them (and the snow).

And I’m looking forward to slowing down to be mindful of all I have to be thankful for. The community that comes to read and discuss here is among those things. Thank you for reading—some of you for years, now!

I’ll be signing off for a bit, but back next week with holiday gift guides and more.

Here are some links of note in the meantime…

Thanksgiving-related posts from the past that may come in handy:

How to have a food-safe Thanksgiving. (Avoid these kitchen mistakes.)

The best cooking-resources, a round-up.

Tips for flying with kids and ways to keep them entertained in the car.

Last-minute recipe inspiration: 

My favorite leek and mushroom tart

A savory galette with eggs (that could be for breakfast)

How to bake root vegetable chips or compose a shaved brussel sprouts salad

Some ideas for dessert.

And just for fun, how the menu has changed at the White House over time.

Sales, sales, sales. 

If you’re one who likes to take advantage of holiday sales, many have already started so you can start ordering the things you have in your cart:

Madewell is offering 25% off your entire purchase through Sunday.

Shopbop is offering up to 25% off your entire purchase with code GOBIG15 through Monday.

Boden is having a 30% off sale through Monday. (Which means that black lace top is on sale.)

Tea Collection has reduced their best selling styles through Saturday.

Macy’s is offering 20% off  with the code THANKS through Saturday.

And Nordstrom is having a big Black Friday sale.

And finally, a little reading: why we’re all probably horrible at giving gifts.

Happy holiday!
