The Hearth and Soul Link Party welcomes blog posts about anything that feeds the soul. Things that feed the soul may include (but are not limited to) recipes, decorating, crafts, family, home, DIY, organization, travel, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
NB. Please only share blog posts. I’m sorry, but links to Facebook posts etc will be deleted.
We don’t have Thanksgiving here in the UK but many American families who live here gather to celebrate. We are often asked to join our American friend and her family for their Thanksgiving meal, which we really look forward to. However Covid-19 is making it challenging for anyone who was hoping to celebrate Thanksgiving next week.
Wherever in the world you are, my heart goes out to those who are missing family and friends at this time. I hope that Hearth and Soul can encourage and inspire you to find new and innovative ways to mark this celebration of gratitude and abundance.
What’s Been Happening?
We’ve got at least ten more days of lockdown ahead of us here. My husband and I have been sticking pretty close to home, only venturing out for walks in the fields and woods or to local shops. We look forward to our chats, virtual dinners and online drinks meet ups with family and friends. We even did an online wine tasting last week!
By the way, did you know that Hearth and Soul has its own Facebook page? I often share your posts there, so I’d love it if you’d pop by and check it out.
As our weather gets cooler and our mornings get darker, I find I look forward to a delicious breakfast even more.
Moist and delicately spiced, Apple Pear and Pecan Streusel Muffins are perfect for breakfast with a hot drink, tucked in a lunch box or as a snack. I also like them with a cup of tea in the afternoon.
The muffins are made using this delicious Crock Pot Apple and Pear Sauce. It tastes amazing, whether you use it in baking or eat it straight from a bowl.
Looking for last minute Thanksgiving dessert ideas that aren’t pumpkin pie?
Don’t miss these deliciously different Thanksgiving dessert recipes. They all keep well, so are perfect for snacks and afternoon tea too.
Thank you all for sharing and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Community.
A Very Different Thanksgiving Featured Posts
Featured posts (from top left, clockwise):-
Tee from TeeDiddlyDee is decorating for fall with a sweet Fall Vintage Door Hutch. I love how the hutch is constructed of an actual old door and all the carefully curated pieces Tee has used to embellish it.
No matter how many people there are at your Thanksgiving table, these deliciously healthy Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes from Jodie Fitz are sure to be very popular indeed.
This Cranberry Pineapple Gelatine Salad reminds me of a salad that my late Mom used to make. Thank you to Chris and Melissa from Little Frugal Homestead for bringing back such wonderful memories – and for sharing this refreshing and delicious salad recipe.
Carol of Comfort Spring offers thoughtful and beautiful tablescape inspiration with her Thanksgiving Table For Two.
