Happy Thanksgiving




To quote Jacques Pépin:

I fell in love with Thanksgiving, and it has remained my favorite of all holidays — maybe because it makes no explicit appeal to patriotism, politics or a particular religion, and it’s not centered on children, like the egg roll at Easter or the Santa Claus tradition, with its largess of Christmas presents. There are no gifts to bestow on anyone, except the gift of being together and sharing nourishment.


Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.

Last night I couldn't eat another bite but the photo of your apple pie is getting my interest up. I hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving.
