Seitan Salad Sandwich {Happy Thanksgiving!}

It has been a quiet day here in our home. It feels kind of strange not being with family and celebrating over mountains of food, but I am still thankful.

I am glad that I can still say Happy Thanksgiving because it is all about being thankful. Even though I can be thankful every day of my life, I am specifically thankful for:

  • the hope I have in God who gives me strength to live each day
  • my husband
  • my mother
  • my sister
  • my father
  • my in-laws
  • my sis-in-laws
  • health
  • joy
  • marriage
  • zumba
  • my job
  • provisions
  • singing

As you can see, I can be thankful for these things every day but I have chosen to really remember the wonderful things in my life.

I hope that you all are able to take a second and be thankful for the wonderful blessings in your life.

I leave you with a simple recipe that can be prepared tomorrow after all your leftovers.

Seitan Salad Sandwich

    Hi sweet woman,
    We also had a quiet thanksgiving this year, which allowed me to meditate on all the things I’m thankful for too. This is a simple yet delicious vegetarian sandwich. Thank you for sharing. I hope you have a great holiday weekend!

    Happy belated Thanksgiving! I’m thankful for all of those things, too. I don’t really have personal experience with zumba, but I guess I can be thankful for it, anyway. :) fun sandwich!
