You're Welcome Day
When: Day after Thanksgiving
You're Welcome Day encourages us to simply say "You're welcome". It helps to put manners back into society.
This very special day comes the day after Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving Day we say "Thanks" for what we have. So, it only seems natural, that "You're Welcome" immediately follows a thank you.
Participating in this day can happen anywhere that you are, and anywhere that you go today. Just speak a profusion of "thank you's" for even the slightest of reasons. When you say thank you, make sure to be sincere. It will go a long way.
I started to ponder Thanksgiving and You're Welcome Day. I thought about how on Thanksgiving we give Thanks to God for all we have, all He has provided. I think of Him shouting a great big You're Welcome! Can you hear Him? A You're Welcome that comes in in His son Jesus Christ. The day after Thanksgiving we beging focusing on Advent and Christmas; God says You're Welcome... and I have to think that God also adds... it was My pleasure.
So this Thanksgiving as you give thanks to God for your many, many blessings... think about His You're Welcome... prepare your heart and home for the coming of the Great You're Welcome!
The lady on the food board I participate on kicks off You're Welcome Day by making a wonderful breakfast for her family. I am going to follow suit. I am making a Blackberry Coffee Cake. I found the recipe on a can of Blackberry Pie Filling I picked up at Big Lots (love Big Lots)
Blackberry Coffee Cake
* 1/2 cup butter, softened
* 2 cups sugar
* 4 eggs
* 2 cups flour
* 2 tsp baking powder
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1 can pie filling
* 1 cup confectioners sugar
* 2 tsp water
* 1 stp vanilla
(I also added 1/2 tsp almond extract)
Cream butter and sugar; beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Pour into buttered 13x9 pan. Spoon pie filling over top; swirl. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes until golden. Blend confectioners sugar, water, vanilla, and almond drizzle over cake.
You could use any pie filling - I am sure.
Let me tell you... this dish is heavenly!
Happy Thanksgiving Friends!!!
