A Calm Storm

I think I ate too much.

But all in all, it was very successful.
A nice balance of family, friends, every meal imaginable,
parties, & even some dancing!

“SAY, by reason of your remembering Him Whom God shall make manifest and by extolling
His name, God will cause your hearts to be dilated with joy,
and do ye not wish your hearts to be in such a blissful state?” -The Báb

My wild rice stuffing recipe, which I made up in Israel and perfected back home:

1 cup wild rice medley
1/8 cup raisins
1/8 cup dried cranberries
1/8 cup diced dried apricots
a few tablespoons diced onions
1 teaspoon tumeric
2 tablespoons butter
salt & pepper

Cook rice in pot according to directions on package. In a pan, fry the butter, onions, tumeric, and dried fruit. When the rice is done, mix the fruit into the rice. Add salt & pepper to taste. SUPER easy!

What did you do for Thanksgiving?  Do you have any strange traditions?

  1. Everything looks delicious.

    We spent Thanksgiving with the Delpaks, actually! We ended up not seeing G’s family because I had to work all week. After dinner, we came home and I worked until 4am I think. 🙁

    My Thanksgiving tradition, for the past nine years, has become to work on that day… no one else wants to and clients will pay you 2x the worth usually. And if it’s not to make extra cash, it’s because I’m in the middle of a project for a country where they don’t celebrate it so they don’t care. heh

  2. aww! I was wondering if y’all ended up seeing his family. Sad you had to work, but yay for money!

    And isn’t it strange to say that you’ve been working for a decade?

  3. I celebrated Thanksgiving with some fellow Baha’is who live on the same side of town as me. Persians, Azerbaijanis and Indians (from India) were in attendance, giving our celebration an international flavor. My contribution was hot mulled cider. The turkey was delicious, considering I’m not normally a fan of turkey. After dinner we played a rather raucous game of Pictionary.

    No strange traditions. But considering that my family is spread out geographically, for me Thanksgiving has usually become a time for connecting with friends.
