Happy Thanksgiving

This holiday, like so many, is proof that we make our own traditions, even when the historical genealogy isn't as clear as young children are told.

In my household, the pumpkin pie is in the oven, the (homemade) cranberry sauce is in the fridge, the (homegrown) sweetpotatoes are cut up, ready for cooking, and the (homemade) breading is made and reading for turning into stuffing. That's right: this vegetarian household has stuffing even without something to stuff.

Oh, wait: our stomachs.

To my fellow U.S. citizens, a happy Thanksgiving. To everyone else, have a great 4th Thursday in November!
