pyramids and priorities




 i shared this on my blog a couple of years ago......it's my own Thanksgiving version of the  traditional food pyramid, the recommended guide which suggests we eat less of what's at the top, and more of what's at the bottom.   which kinda explains where turkey is on my priority list, as opposed to pumpkin pie with whipped cream, sweet potatoes, and you guessed it:  chocolate.....heeheehee

*
tomorrow, we celebrate Thanksgiving here in America, and i just want you to know that i'm SO very grateful for you!  thank you for taking the time to stop by here and say hello.....i appreciate your comments and encouragement so much!  i'm going to take a few bloggy days off this week to spend with my family, but i'll see you on monday!!

many blessings to you and your sweet family!!

Lori! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! May every blessing be yours on this special day and always! Good to know someone has finally gotten the Food Pyramid right!!! ;) Also, wanted to share a sweet little prayer so perfect for the holiday:
So once in every year we throng
Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart.
Arthur Guiterman
So thankful you share YOUR blessing of creativity with us.
xoxo, Jeanette

The last Thursday of November: Thanksgiving... I wish you and your family a fabulous day!!
I like very much "ciccia-turckey" (ciccia=meat, pronouncing the sweet C). Can you send me a little bit?

That is so great Lori! Hope you had a wonderful celebration. Thank you for your kind words of congratulations over at my place!

PS: the top of my pyramid would probably have pumpkin cheesecake.

Betty Jo said...

That's awesome Lori! But, you'd have to turn it upside down for me; with turkey the biggest item. Yummy! Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.
