My problem with Thanksgiving is the turkey, which I actively dislike . . . but I do wish you, and all Americans, a happy and blessed Thanksgiving anyway : for which I am, as always, offering prayers today.God Bless you all.
Are we the only country in the world that sets aside a day to give thanks to God? Maybe because we are such a blessed country? Today I'm invited over my daughter's for Thanksgiving. But my son-in-law is smokin' their turkey, so I'm baking another one. I think everything smoked taste like ham. I love ham, but on Thanksgiving I want my turkey to taste like turkey. Happy Thanksgiving! Is the priory having a special dinner for you Americans?
Woo! Finally, my family-recipe oyster stuffing is historically legitimized!
