So we (the husband) decided we need a break from camping.
He booked us two nights at a local Holiday Inn. We had heat, hot showers and flushing toilets!! Truly something to be thankful for!
We even had an indoor salt water pool! We were thrilled to find the pool all to ourselves, but after checking the water we realized it was cold. It was too cold for me, but the kids had fun.
We stayed for the two coldest nights, and then headed back to the camper Thanksgiving Day.
With our lack of running water (we had water in jugs) and lack of space in the camper, i decided to just make a traditional simple meal. i cut up the root veggies and coated them in a little olive oil. Then roasted them in the pan i used for our Quorn Roast.
Despite having no running water, not going on our traditional turkey drive, forgetting to play Alice's Restaurant (another tradition) and the freezing temperatures outside, we had a wonderful meal together in the camper. Even with the challenges and set backs of this year, we were reminded of how truly blessed we are to all be able to sit down together and enjoy this abundance of food. So much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!
