holiday dishIt’s almost Thanksgiving already! Can’t believe that the month of November has flown by so quickly. It’s time for our annual holiday blogs at Living Light. Last year, we bloggers had fun touching on family traditions and memories and our personal feelings about the season, and this year we look forward to taking some extra time to connect with all of you. First thing to mention is that we have a local vegetarian Thanksgiving potluck on Thanksgiving Day here in Fort Bragg. It’s a lot of fun: we have an appreciation circle, a world peace meditation, and then everyone shares dishes that they’ve brought. The dishes can be raw, vegan, or vegetarian, as long as they are labeled. We’ve hosted it for several years now, and the food is definitely yummy! So whether you like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, or football, or family gatherings, we hope you enjoy the traditional day of gathering together and remembering to be grateful. What a great reason to celebrate!macy's thanksgiving We’re just finishing up our Pastry Arts – Unbaked! II class for the year, and the Living Light Cafe will have some  wonderful desserts in the case, thanks to our pastry diva Vinnette Thompson and culinary programs manager, Martine Lussier. Stop in for a sweet surprise, or call 964-2420 to RSVP for the Thanksgiving potluck!pumpkin pie

  • It’s Pumpkin Season at Living Light! by kristin October 19, 2013
