Happy Thanksgiving All! Although we think of the tradition
of Thanksgiving commemorating a meal shared between Native Americans and
Pilgrims, according to weather.com’s
feature today, the story is a bit different. President George Washington proclaimed that
the first Thanksgiving Day be celebrated on November 26, 1789 to give thanks
for the US Constitution, “now lately instituted, for the civil and religious
liberty with which we are blessed.” Let’s give thanks for our lives and our
liberties, as well as for bountiful foods shared with each other today.
While we’re giving thanks, I’d like to
appreciate each and every Seasonal Eating reader, with a special shout-out to
followers and subscribers. You make this journey of seasonal exploration more fun and
fulfilling. Thanks for your interest and your comments. May your Thanksgiving
Day be blessed with fun, food, family, and friends. Enjoy!
