I posted the true history of our American Thanksgiving in 2012 and thought it was time to share it again. I’ve copied and pasted it below.
Chaos and Calm
Good morning, afternoon or evening, for whichever time you read this post.
I had a brief and serene blog post scheduled for today, but then something happened. . .

I hope everyone is enjoying family, friends, feast and some fine goodies. May those who don’t celebrate this American holiday be blessed as well.
I just finished making pumpkin cookies for Thanksgiving treats.

Some of you may already be aware of these delectable delights, but I’m going to share the recipe here today anyway. When I first made them for my in-laws family, they had never heard of them before and they gobbled them up. Continue reading “Pumpkin Pie Alternative”
