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.
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.
