What a day...every year around this time I think of my co-worker who was born and raised here in the U.S., but her parents were from India. Once at work we had a mini- Thanksgiving day feast and she commented how this was the first Thanksgiving Day meal she had ever had. Us American citizens were shocked. That's when I realized that it was truly an American holiday and even though she was an American Citizen the culture in which she lived in didn't recognize the pilgrims and indians story.
We acknowledge the American tradition of Thanksgiving Day today, but as Christians I told my children that Thanksgiving should be a daily part of our lives and not just practiced on one particular day.
Now for the fun stuff....my 5th grader and 1st grader made the best, I mean slammin sweet potatoes ever!!!! THe 5th grader also got a recipe from school for cranberry squares....let me just say my stomach is ready to bust, I ate so much! Hey Grandmother...you were'nt here this year so Jerry made the Turkey gravy (he didn't do half bad). Dad...we missed your late night Turkey roasting. I didn't realize how many traditional dishes call for butter...we used four sticks of butter for ONE MEAL....I'll have to run around shopping tomorrow to work it off!
Well I hope that everyone had a Happy Fat-Free Thanksgiving:)
