QUOTE OF THE WEEK
At Grandma’s House
I like the taste of turkey any time throughout the year,
But, it never seems to taste as good as when Thanksgiving’s here,
Could be it’s all the trimmings that is cooked with it to eat,
But, I think it’s eating at Grandma’s house that makes it such a treat.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Citizen of the Week and Tried & Tasted Recipe will be back next week.
