We have a lot to be thankful for.
We have just celebrated Veterans Day. When you see a veteran be sure to tell them thank you for their service to our country.
As we are approaching Thanksgiving, I hope everyone can enjoy some time with family and friends. I know I work in retail, but I think all the stores should be closed on Thanksgiving. There is plenty of time to shop after Thanksgiving is over, but the TV, newspapers and all the ads won’t let us forget it is time to shop for Christmas.
Here are a few recipes you may want to try for Thanksgiving. I know we always go back to those family favorites.
