Giving thanks for eating

Thanksgiving was a quiet one in our house. We were just thankful for eating. Voluntarily eating. The only one who's done that in the previous week was Martin. All the rest of us were down with something nasty. Emilie had it worst - five days of high temperatures, only brought down by drugs, then back up at the end of the 6 hours when she had to take the next batch. Even when the fever stopped, she was just sleeping for another day and a half. But, by thanksgiving, all of us were in an ok shape. Still sick, but recovering. And so we were appropriately thankful on thanksgiving. Martin made an excellent non-traditional-thanksgiving meal - stuffed mushrooms (ok, that is traiditional), chickpea and pasta soupy italian thingy, pork tenderloin, and homemade ice cream. Mmmmmm. Hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving!
