What am I thankful for?

Each and every reader and every last comment, all of which help to make this a better blog. It’s been a terrific — if uneven — year for me blogging. But it’s great to be back, immersed in the baking community, doing my bit for the greater cause of fresh-made doughnuts and home-laminated Danish. Thanks to everyone for their participation, and to my family for their infinite patience and support.

Happy (American) Thanksgiving to all!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to the Pastry family!

    … and to all fellow Joe Pastry groupies!

    It’s not been an easy year and it’s good to focus on the good parts while not denying the lads pleasant aspects. For us the greatest difficulty has been transitioning to work and school from home. The greatest joy has been how that lifestyle change has brought us even closer together than ever before. Blessings from times of turmoil!

    1. Well said, Brian. How do we do the best we can with what have to work with? It’s what we should be asking wherever — and whenever — we are.

      Cheers and have a great day!

  2. Thank you, Mr. Pastry! I’m grateful for your blog being up all these years – and active again! May you and yours have a pleasant, peaceful celebration with staggering amounts of delicious food.

  3. Happy (US) Thanksgiving to you and the family, Joe! It’s truly wonderful to have you back – definitely one of the better things to happen in 2020 🙂

  4. I’ve popped in and off your blog for many years. I was glad to see you were back posting when the shutdowns started rolling this spring.

    I’m grateful to be alive even if I feel fried by the cognitive overload and loss of equanimity this year has brought. I’m grateful for my family even though I’ve yet to meet the newest member of the family, my kiddo’s baby girl.

    Off to dig up a sourdough discard recipe so I don’t have to toss out some precious gold. ~I hate throwing things away that still has use~ 🙂

    Happy Holidays to you and yours, Joe.

    1. You and Mrs. Pastry are cut from the same cloth, Suz!

      Here’s to gratitude, and to 2021!

      – Joe
