Like many of you, I honor my relatives with carrying their dishes forward on Thanksgiving in the US.
I do wish every country celebrated a “thanksgiving” on the same day.
Food and family as a break for peace
MY THANKSGIVING MENU (and those who first made or inspired the dishes)
Spiced sweet and salty nuts–me
