Happy Thanksgiving!

Remember that while spending time in the kitchen may be enjoyable for some and a chore for others, it’s not always about the food we eat; it’s about the time we spend with family and friends. Bring on the popcorn and jellybeans and may you peeps have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving Day.
