Ideas for a Vegan Thanksgiving, Part 3: Spinach with Pine Nuts and Raisins

Hi everyone!

This is Lee, otherwise known as “the husband” (well, Vicky’s husband). I’d like to take over the blog just for today with the help of my sister in law. I hope you don’t mind!

I don’t know much about cooking or food (other than the fact that I love to eat it), but I just wanted to take a minute to wish my beautiful wife a very happy birthday.

Vicky, thank you for everything you do everyday. For taking care of me and our beautiful children. For your strength and your passion. And most of all, for coming into my life and making me a better man.

To quote our favorite song, I love you “just the way you are” …

 “Oh, her eyes, her eyes, make the stars look like they’re not shining


Her hair, her hair, falls perfectly without her trying 


She’s so beautiful, and I tell her every day



Yeah, I know, I know, when I compliment her she won’t believe me


And it’s so, it’s so, sad to think that she don’t see what I see


But every time she asks me do I look ok, I say



When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change


Cause you’re amazing, just the way you are


And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while


Because girl you’re amazing, just the way you are



Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she let me


Her laugh, her laugh, she hates but I think it’s so sexy


She’s so beautiful, and I tell her every day



Oh, you know, you know, you know, I’d never ask you to change


If perfect’s what you’re searching for then just stay the same


So, don’t even bother asking if you look ok


You know I’ll say



When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change


Cause you’re amazing, just the way you are


And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while


Because girl you’re amazing, just the way you are


The way you are, the way you are


Girl you’re amazing, just the way you are



When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change


Cause you’re amazing, just the way you are


And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while


Cause girl you’re amazing, just the way you are
