Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday Friends! Can you believe we are almost at the Holiday weekend? So to start I am so Thankful for the long weekend ahead! What else am I thankful for today?
* I am Thankful to be a fan of the classiest, most humble, good natured and hard working NBA team in the league. The Thunder ended their season with a final loss to the Mavs last night and it was heartbreaking. But at the same time I am so thankful to be apart of this "Oklahoma Family" who is so proud of our home team (win or not)......we will get em next year! Thunder Up!
* I am SO Thankful that my basil is not only growing but doing so well! I usually kill everything and I am overjoyed that I have been able to walk into my backyard and use my very own fresh basil!
I have a fun tip for you........if you have leftover basil laying around why not make Basil Lemonade? I mean literally all I did was make some pink lemonade and throw in some basil to infuse. I then garnished the glass when I served it! It was a nice subtle touch!
* Next, I am thankful that over the years I have become somewhat of a good cook! And I am so proud of myself, last night I used what I know about soups to make my own homemade Manhattan Clam Chowder! It was so easy and so good! The recipe is after the pic...........
Ingredients:
yellow onion (chopped), 2 carrots (peeled and diced), 3 garlic cloves (minced), 2 cups chicken stock, 2 bay leaves, 2 cans of fire roasted tomatoes (do not drain), 2 cans of clams (do not drain), S & P
Directions:
- Over Med-high heat sauté your onion and carrots in a large soup pot with EVOO
- Throw your garlic in when your onions start to get soft
- Add 2 cups chicken stock, tomatoes, clams and bay leaves and bring to a boil
- Lower heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 20minutes
- Remove your bay leaves and season to your taste!
- ENJOY!
* You know what else I am Thankful for? That I have a job that lets me work from home! It really is like a dream! This is the best job I have had and I am very Thankful!
* Lastly I am Thankful for all your comments, everyone who entered my contest and for all my new followers! I think I am going to try to do giveaways more often! So......drumroll please........the winner of the Scentsy Gift is...............
