For those of you who don't speak Twitterese, the number sign is a hashtag which makes whatever follows it searchable on the otherwise messy playground that is Twitter.
Yes, I know its a little self-referential to tweet about #myfavoritethings, but it's better than tweeting about #mylunch or #myboss or #myshoes. That particular hashtag has the added benefit of inspiring me to sing, on a semi-regular basis...
Raindrops on roses, whisker on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm winter mittens.Actually, maybe that's not such a benefit. But it is fun to discover other people love doors painted bright red (I know that sounds like it should be in the song, but it's not) lattes on a rainy day, and the musical stylings of Cake.
Inspired by the upcoming #Thanksgivingholiday, I decided to post a few of #myfavorite(Thanksgiving)things right here.
My hope is some of my favorite things will turn out to be your favorite things too which would be, yet another, #favoritething.
Cranberry-Glazed Sweet Potatoes I make this yummy dish every year for Thanksgiving and each year people keep coming back for more. It's sweet, slightly spicy and perfect for a #myfavoritething Thanksgiving. One note, I'm one of those cooks who makes little changes to recipes. For this one, I substitute bourbon with some kind of orange-flavored liquor I found in our liquor cabinet and I think that's what makes this dish especially divine.
Oreo Turkeys I think those two words probably say it all, but in case you need more, here is one of our Oreo Turkeys past.
Alanis Morissette's Thank You song. I know this isn't about Thanksgiving and that it's actually quite sad, but if you don't listen too closely to the lyrics it makes a happy Thank You Thanksgiving vibe and sets the mood for turkey basting, gluing Reese's Peanut Butter cups to Oreos and catching up with relatives while having a glass of wine in the kitchen.
Thanksgiving Art. Sorry, no link here.
You'll have to make your kids sweat shop out there own version of autumn art over Thanksgiving break.
Each year when I pull out Child #1's third grade card where she wrote she is "Thankful for her house that never burnt down" or look at Child #2's Thanksgiving tree hand, it's a #myfavoritething moment all over again.
So, tell me #yourfavoritethings, and if you aren't already following me on Twitter come find me and say hello @JohannaGarth.
