For those of you who cook or bake for the holidays, an idea. Grind the herbs yourself. You have a mortar and pestle, don't you? At least one? (one for food, one for non food, right?) Even if you use packaged, prepared spices most of the year; for Thanksgiving, grind the cloves yourself, grind in a bit of cinnamon stick, whatever you are using. That is the perfect time to add the intentions, the wishes, the desires that you have for your household. Put in the effort and the spirit. You will see, and taste the difference. I promise.
