The Persimmon Punch + a few thanksgiving links!

The Persimmon Punch | @withfoodandlove

This time last year I had no idea I’d be living in St. Louis. And that’s some really crazy shit you guys. Life in the Midwest proves to be slow and patient and kind, and we like it here. But, we also miss our family back east, a lot. Especially right now. This year Thanksgiving will look a little different. Just me, my husband and a bunch of aviation obsessed dudes who were transplanted to the Midwest like us. They’ll watch football, and eat brie and drink fancy cocktails. Chet and me will stay in the kitchen – just the way I like it.

Here are a few things that are on tap for our Thanksgiving celebrations.

For drinking:

These Persimmon Punch martinis
Black Peppercorn + Cranberry Shrubs
Sonja and Alex’s Pomegranate Cider Spritzer

For eating:

Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Shallot + Sage Toasted Breadcrumbs
Roasted Acorn Squash with Caramelized Shallots
Super Veggie Sage Stuffing
Elizabeth’s Roasted Fennel + Satsuma Salad
Emilie’s Maple Roasted Harvest Vegetables
Lily’s Fennel Spiced Cranberry Sauce + Rosemary Chevre Mashed Potatoes
Renee’s High Vibe Pumpkin Pie with a dollop of my Vanilla Ginger Coconut Cream

These Persimmon Punch martinis, are sweet but not too sweet, and perfect with any spirit or sparkling wine of your choice. I hope you love them as much as I do. Wishing you all a warm and happy and healthy holiday. See you next week, xx.

I get it, celebrating the birth of your blog may be a tad self-indulgent. But that said, With Food + Love is my baby. This is my space. This is a piece of the interwebs that I’ve claimed as my own and that I call home. And I guess you’d say I’m brave enough to let the whole world into it.

You see, each week as I’m creating these plant-empowered recipes, I have you in mind. Yes, you. I pour my heart and soul into the food I make and the photographs that I take. This is an extension of me, my life and my work and I’m proud of it. So – let’s party!! Thank you all so much for reading and spreading the word about With Food + Love. As cliche as it sounds, it really, truly does mean the world to me.
