  1. Maria

    I think we need some “smaller” Thanksgiving meals. The CDC is recommending Thanksgiving with only household members. So smaller is “the bill” for 2020. But special, you know, we’ve all had enough of holidays without family and friends!!

    Also maybe a bit unique – to celebrate how unique this year is instead of dwelling in sadness

    Thanks Cathy

    1. It will just be the four of us this year but I still want it to be special. Thanks for sharing!

  2. As always, I love these posts!

    I’d love to see some non-traditional Thanksgiving recipes, since this Thanksgiving won’t be a traditional one (thanks, Covid! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Blessings to you and your family! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks for sharing! I am working on some new recipes. It’s always fun to mix things up.

  3. Here visiting and just did Big cottonwood canyon from salt lake to ParkCity. Tell me about the Mirror Lake drive…as harrowing? Easier?

    1. From Kamas, it is about 30 to 40 minutes to Mirror Lake, it is a really pretty drive! It is cold at the top! The lake is already starting to freeze!
