The day before "Turkey Day" has been a busy one for as long as I can remember - things to do, people to see, and food to make. Needless to say, my day and evening has been spent in my own kitchen, making all kinds of things. My big contribution to the big dinner tomorrow, an apple compote, was a fairly easy task if you ask me. I kicked it up, and added a few little things that really made it my own.

Don't be afraid of "stepping out of the box," but keep it simple. 

I also helped make some prosciutto-wrapped Gorgonzola-stuffed dates, which will be baked then drizzled with a balsamic local honey reduction (I'm really looking forward to that!).  The dates, paired with your favorite table wine or glass of champagne, would make a wonderful date night appetizer.

A few other items I was able to whip up: cinnamon crumble to go with the compote, and just for dinner tonight, butternut squash and coconut milk puree over home-made curry pasta. Keep an eye out for those recipes. 

Whatever fills your day, remember to enjoy the little things - time with your love ones and people close to you. 

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
