1. A long dinner with a friend who might just be the slowest eater ever, but is also a good talker, so it all evens out. Laughter with a good friend is always good medicine!
2. Chicken Tikka Masala.
3. The candy cane striped insides of Chiogga beets (and a house full of the earthy smell of beets roasted with salt and thyme).
4. An It's It ice cream sandwich for dessert.
5. Lemons from the neighbor's tree rolling down the gutters of my street. And remembering my dad being totally amused by it when he visited last year (Lemon trees aren't exactly common in Michigan).
(Today's gratitude is all about the food, huh? And I just finished dinner, so I'm not even hungry!)
