  • Most people have their Thanksgiving menu planned and time schedule set, but just in case you would like to try something new this year, let me help you with some suggestions.

    But before I do, let me wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving. I hope you can be with your family and maybe even your extended family before the day is over.

  • Even with Black Friday encroaching upon Thanksgiving, the holiday is still mainly about spending time with family and a glorious feast of food.

    After the food fest is over the best part of the holiday arrives — leftovers.

    There’s just something about warming up leftovers the day after, sometimes several days after, that makes them taste even better.
