This is kind-of an impromptu post and so I hope you can forgive the intrusion. But, I love Thanksgiving. Ever since I celebrated it for the first time as a missionary I was hooked. Good food. Fun. Gratitude. Consequently I decided that I would want to continue that tradition as best I could for my family. I am not a great cook, and my wife thinks it is a bit weird (she already thinks I am eccentric). So we bought some food, did some research for American thanksgiving recipes, were surprised by the amount of syrup you guys used and went forward. It was pretty good. Not quite the standard of those senior couples who cooked my first ever try but I think for my second attempt we had a pretty good time. So on this day, I want to express my gratitude for a truly inspiring American Tradition.
