Happy Thanksgiving

In this diverse, pluralistic place we call America, there really is no such thing as a typical Thanksgiving dinner any longer.

I've had thanksgiving tamales made by a group of Japanese women & various stuffings made with prunes, sausage, Mrs. Cubbison's, Campbell's soup, apple sauce, and just about everything else.

For some, it is a Honey Baked Ham. Others, the classic turkey. Some families have to have mashed potatoes, others mac and cheese.

And then dessert. Pumpkin, sweet potato, mincemeat pies, or maybe that red jello stuff grandma always makes. And then a cheesecake... and some nog. Maybe even spiked.

But whatever your fancy, take a few minutes over the next few days, and instead of rushing out to spend what little is left of your retirement, call someone in your family, tell 'em you love 'em and wish them a Happy Thanksgiving.

You'll feel better for it.

In the mean time, here are a few funnies you might enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a happy one. And may you find whatever is on your plate this year so tasty that you eat until it comes out orifici you never knew you had. :)

Tomorrow it is traditional American mixed with Filipino goodies: pansit (noodles), lumpia (egg rolls), and pandesal (sweet rolls). I reckon I will be eating more of the pinoy food since we already had some bird earlier in the week.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
