I made up a big batch of cranberry sauce this year for Thanksgiving.
I have lots of it and I've been looking up creative ways to repurpose the leftover sauce.

I have so very much to be thankful for this year.
Everyday mercies from the Lord.
And too many good memories to remember.
I am even grateful for the many trials that Caleb and I faced this past year.
Out of those trials comes greater faith and much spiritual growth. Caleb and I have
grown closer than ever to one another. It seems like some of our greatest trials have such eternal benefits, and I try and remind myself of that often since this earth is not my forever home. The Lord truly brings so much good out of hardships, and for that I am so very grateful!
I hope yall had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of leftovers to munch on all weekend!
This is what I'm planning to serve up for lunch today with a
side salad (because I've at least got to pretend to be healthy this weekend):
|This past Saturday Caleb and I attended the first annual BBQ, Bluegrass, & Beer festival at|
Red Hill. Red Hill is Patrick Henry's house in Brookneal, VA. It only took us about 40 minutes to get there; I love how very close to all things history I am. Well...minus the fact that I live near Appomattox.
|We had a beautiful fall day!|
Neither of us had ever been to Red Hill. It was so beautiful!
|We both really enjoyed listening to all the different bluegrass bands.|
Yes, even Caleb enjoyed bluegrass! That's a start :D
|Our ticket price included two beers each or two glasses of wine.|
Caleb made a beeline for the beer truck. I chose wine, but it was not good wine at all.
Caleb drank a few different types of local beers from the Charlottesville area.
|There were a few different food vendors and we ended up getting bbq bison from a local|
family run farm. It was reallllly good!
|We enjoyed some sweet potato fries while we listened to the music.|
