Roasted beetroot and carrots

I love Thanksgiving. I feel like it’s all the best things about Christmas- the feasting, getting together with people you love- without all the stress (and cost!) of buying presents. I’ve lived in England for eleven years now, but I’ve still never failed to celebrate Thanksgiving in some way or another!

I graduated from uni in July and since then (give or take a few holidays) I have been spending my unemployed days frantically searching for a job. I started out with high aspirations (and hopes), applying for jobs in prestigious art museums and magazines but, after a string of (rather painful) rejections, I have lowered my sights to babysitting and waitressing jobs.
