  1. Great features this week Angie. Hope you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.

  2. We are getting a fresh turkey this year. We have a nice little turkey farm about 3 miles from the house.

    • Angie says:

      We’ll probably end up with fresh, too. It’s getting a little too late to prep a frozen turkey, unless I get one this weekend. Someone at work mentioned thawing it in a cooler packed with ice in the garage for a couple of days. I might give it a try. Otherwise, it’ll take 4 days to thaw in my fridge!

    Angie, Judi and Stefi, thanks so much for featuring my date-coconut laddoos!! You guys made my day! I am doing a happy dance!!Yay! Happy FF ladies!

    What happened in Paris is very distressing. Nobody can understand why people do what they do. One thing for sure is that no religion teaches violence. All religions teach love, respect and tolerance for each other.

    • Angie says:

      You’re right, of course. Some people want to hijack religions to justify violence but it’s never okay. I love how the father in the video teaches his son that only peace can fight violence.

  5. The only good thing about this tragedy is powerful countries working together. I don’t understand this mentality either. My daughter teaches french and has studied and visited France several times. I sent her your daughters amazing cup of coffee to start her day. She’ll love it!

  6. A wonderful post, a sad rememberance of the events of Nov 13 in Paris. Thanks Angie and thank you also for featuring my tart.

  7. Such a heart-touching video, Angie. Wish the whole world started using flowers and candles to protect their countries rather than using guns.

    Lovely features this week! πŸ™‚ Happy FF!

    • Angie says:

      Isn’t that little boy so precious? I just love it when at the end he started smiling. It seemed that he got the message his father was trying to convey. Just so moving and adorable!

      Happy FF to you, too, and have a lovely Thanksgiving! πŸ™‚

  8. Your sister has quite the talent. Poignant tribute to the heartbreaking events in Paris. Happy FF and Thanksgivng Angie!

    • Angie says:

      She does! She makes incredible latte art. Some are so detailed and lifelike (she made this Micahel Jackson image and other things) and I call them creepy, which makes her mad, haha… I’m hoping Paris will stay the same. Would love to go visit again. Happy FF and Thnaksgiving to you, too, Johanne! XOXO

  9. I love your sister’s latte – brings back good memories of our trips to France and Paris. We always tried to eat outside the cafe and it is so hard to understand and believe this happened. That little boy is adorable and so innocent. Good features Angie πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      We did that, too, when we were there. And the kids had such an experience, especially at the Metro πŸ™‚ One day we’ll go back. I agree with you, excellent features! πŸ˜€

    hi Angie
    It is awful with such unrest and sadness created for what seems pointlessness and it is a great clip! πŸ™‚ x

  11. Happy Thanksgiving! Hope it’s a wonderful one for you all <3

  12. Jhuls says:

    What a beautiful coffee art, Angie! Lovely features, too. Have a fab weekend, happy FF and take care. Sending lots of love and hugs!

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Jhuls! I’m so glad it’s Friday, yay! And it’ll be a short work week next week. Double yay! But then I’ll have to wrestle with Mr. Turkey, bummer… But don’t mind me, you have a great weekend, ok? XOXO

  13. Loretta says:

    Your sister has talent, what a tribute albeit in a cup of coffee!!! My heart aches for all of them. I don’t want to turn on the radio or tv anymore, just too much going on, but then I read it on my computer or tablet too, there’s no escaping it, and then today in Mali – when will this end? On another note, the features are lovely, enjoy your weekend Angie.

    • Angie says:

      Oh, no! Just got off work, didn’t know about Mali. I get a headache listening to the news sometimes. That’s why I much rather watch Disney channel with my daughter. Thank goodness it’s the weekend; it’s been such a long week! Thanks for co-hosting, Loretta. Have a great weekend and Happy Thanksgiving! XOXO

  14. It’s hard to know what to say, nothing seems to be appropriate, it’s just all horrible. I saw that video on facebook, such innocence should be cherished. xxx

  15. Angie, you sister is so talented! I’ve watched that video many times…love the way the little boy says, “Papa.”

  16. Thanks for featuring my pears, guys! With so many fantastic dishes, I’m very flattered.

    I sometimes feel a little at a loss with my blog – it seems so trivial to write and/or think about blogging about food in the midst of a monumental crisis or tragedy like we had last week. I had to remind myself that sometimes when things are the worst, all you can do is go on, one step at a time, and sometimes it’s the little everyday things we take for granted that get us through.

    Here’s to Friends, Food and Family.

    • Angie says:

      I couldn’t have said it any better, Molly. It’s the little everyday things, the familiar routines, and their continuity that bring the most comfort. At least for me, I feel better knowing the same will happen everyday. Unless of course when I’m on vacation, then throw me anything I’m game πŸ˜€ Your pears were a crowd pleaser. They deserve the spotlight! πŸ™‚

  17. Shani says:

    Wow ! It’s always exciting to see on of your recipes get featured here. <3 Thank you so much! Loving all the recipes posted this week!

  18. I echo your thoughts xx and that video is so moving xx

  19. A touching video dear Angie, thank you for sharing it. We live in quite unpredictable and heartbreaking times, but there is so much good flowing through the majority of people in this world, which gives me hope that we’ll all find a way through it. M.xx

    • Angie says:

      I agree with you, Margot, 100%!! I do have faith in us, the human race. I think in the end, we’ll find a way to make things better. Not always obvious at first, but we just have to always think positive, right? XOXO

  20. Ginger says:

    I always appreciated the cultural openness of London, which makes attacks like these – and the ensuing bigotry – all the more painful. Thanks for posting such an uplifting message!

Talk to me, people!
