Happy Turkey Day!
I must admit celebrating a holiday of questionable historical value, both for its' perhaps untrue origin, and the added fact that it came into existence after the Civil War, is rather odd. But if it came into that post war existence to promote the healing of a war torn country then I'm all for it.
I do love being together with family and friends so any rationale is a good one,and of course, an excuse to make pies is never wasted.
Warm thoughts to all of you on the occasion of this Thanksgiving. I am grateful, my friends, for your support, so what ever you're doing and wherever you are, have a truly lovely day. Happy Thanksgiving!
