Smorgasbord Blogger Daily – Tuesday 26th November 2019 – #Thanksgiving #Soup Linda Lee Greene, #PotatoCake John Rieber, #SnackPlate Home is Where the Boat Is, #Poetry Colleen M. Chesebro

Over the next few days including on Thursday, I hope to share some of the Thanksgiving posts going out in the community.. And I have a lovely treat for you in the form of a delicious soup that you might like to make before Thursday to enjoy with your family and friends. Posted by Linda Lee Greene, here is a Farm House Cheese Recipe.

Winter, and especially the high-holiday season that is winter’s centerpiece, brings with it for me an air of nostalgia, a wistfulness for the Thanksgiving Days of old, the days when at the end of a long country lane, the white square farmhouse of my maternal grandparents came into view, and within its walls my large family would soon gather around an immense table groaning with a homegrown Thanksgiving meal. With the elapsing of time, the torch has passed to my aunts and uncles, and then to the members of my generation. The work of keeping the traditions of our family alive and well continues to be handed down. This Thanksgiving my immediate family will gather at the home of my daughter, Elizabeth, the person who often as not, has hosted our celebration for several years. I am so grateful for the young people of my family, and for the time and space to hunker into the winter of my life, to gather my provisions, as well as to relax into my unbound hours and make the most of them.

Yes, the Thanksgiving Day menu planning is underway.

I love potatoes, and this is my all-time favorite dish – a “gateau de pommes de terre” – a “potato cake!”

It’s a dish I first had in Paris with my wife Alex at the legendary bistro Chez L’Ami Louis, home of the $125 chicken:

About John Rieber – @JohnRieber

I love great food, interesting books, fascinating travel, outrageous movies, and bacon, especially when it sits on top of a great cheeseburger! I work in entertainment – and I have been lucky enough to interview some really talented Artists – that guides my posts: interesting and provocative movies, music, social media and of course, food, since I believe strongly in the maxim, “everyone eats!”

I went browsing in the reader and discovered this post which would certainly impress your guests…a great idea for pre-dinner snacks and you could make your own adaptation..this from Mary of Home is Where the Boat is…
