This time of year we sometimes find ourselves glancing "over the fence" at the family celebrations of our friends and neighbors with a wistful sigh. Its so much easier to look through a window and imagine the Norman Rockwell painting when we don't see the holiday ideal in our own family. Well you know what? I wasn't there but I can guarantee you that scene in the painting was LOUD. I can also guarantee you some of those folks drove hours to be there, bickering all the way. And some complained of how the turkey was cooked, or that so-and-so's wife had on too much lipstick (having no idea that complaining was a surer sign of their own character). But at that moment in the painting those folks from Mr. Rockwell's mind clicked. They were a family gathered around a dinner table to give thanks. And in that moment, no matter the imperfections and faults, they became beautiful. And the imaginary photo was snapped. That was the take away. It'll be there for your family, too. All you gotta do is shift the focus away from the neighbor's picture window so you can see the art surrounding you. You may have turkey with all the trimmings, but it just won't taste right unless you bring a thankful heart. -Christy Jordan

'Freedom from Want' by Norman Rockwell, Saturday Evening Post, March 3 1942 <> Speaking of the woman who posed for his painting, Rockwell said, “Our cook, Mrs. Wheaton, roasted it, I painted it, and we ate it.” Happy Thanksgiving!
Norman Rockwell fans in Chicago, you're in for a treat this Thanksgiving! Check out "Freedom From Want," from our permanent collection, in the Art Institute's current exhibition: "Art and Appetite: American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine"

apples to apples
Its apple season, and if you’re lucky enough to live near an orchard you’ll want to get in on some apple picking! Here’s the thing though – chances are you’re not going to walk away with a small bag of 10 apples. If you’re anything like us, you probably go a little nuts, bringing home a giant loot. After making an apple pie or two and with time taking it’s toll on these delicious fruits, you’re faced with the dilemma of what to do with the rest! We have a few ideas that will help you get the most out of your apples and allow you to continue enjoying, once the season has passed. Photo: Urban Gardens Web Make Apple Preserves and Jams Whipping up a big batch of apple preserves or jam is a great way to consolidate the fruit and create a sweet treat that will last you months. Pressed apple cider from you pickings can be given a grown-up twist with a little fermentation and patience. We think it’s worth the week or so it takes to turn from soft to hard. Photo: Mother Earth News Dry Your Apples Create a healthy snack that will keep your kid’s sweet tooth satisfied naturally. Making dried apple chips is easy and when sealed and stored in air-tight containers or bags, you’ll be pulling these out to much on the rest of the year.
