Things We Heart

Finding a balance between the selflessness & selfishness of motherhood.

It's a thin line   

 

Cranberry can, not canned cranberry.

I can't tell a lie, for me Thanksgiving isn't Thanksgiving without homemade cranberry sauce. My mom has made it for as long as I can remember so for me it is deeply ingrained in my image of fall. 

When I meet people who say something like.... "Ugh, I hate cranberry sauce!" I always have to ask if they have always had the canned version and most of the time thats what they grew up with. The solid mass of red gunk with can line imprint. NOPE! 

While I am sure that holds a certain nostalgic place in many hearts, we can do better. Cranberry sauce is one of the easiest things to make but people treat you like your some sort of kitchen guru when you bring fresh cranberry sauce to a meal. Thats fine, we'll let them think it was super hard!
