Here it is – that time of year when everyone’s thoughts turn to food! I’m thankful that at our house, we have plenty of food, but sometimes I am not so grateful that I am the one who usually gets to cook it!
So I am always on the lookout for simple, tasty recipes that are also easy on the budget. Here are a few of my family’s favorites:
Bring water, potatoes, carrots and celery to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer til vegetables are tender.
Add cheese and ham; cook, stirring til cheese is melted.
This makes about 4 servings, but it could easily be cut in half or doubled.
Samuel Adams, father of the American Revolution:
'It is therefore recommended ... to set apart Thursday the eighteenth day of December next, for solemn thanksgiving and praise, that with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts and consecrate themselves to the service of their divine benefactor ...'
-November 1, 1777 (adopted by the 13 states as the first official Thanksgiving Proclamation)
