Be happy -- and above all -- be GRATEFUL in SPITE of "them."

Think of it this way.

Every time a Conservative-Libertarian smiles, laughs, expresses gratitude and joy, or takes a kick in the shins with good grace and a touch of humor, a Marxian-Socialist-Liberal-Progressive-Statist somewhere curses, stamps his foot, pulls out his hair, howls with indignation and remains dyspeptic and disconsolate for at least a week. ;-)

The Kingdom of God (i.e. Joy everlasting!) is within ALL of us.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Yes indeed, FT. They won the election yet they remain angry and filled with bile.

I think it must be the lefty's natural state...

Obama won reelection? BFD. Congratulations to him.

I don't let politics and the actions of others dictate my happiness.

Apple or pumpkin?

Silverfiddle said...

I'm a pumpkin pie fan myself, but I'm not big on desserts.

Just got done smoking a turkey, waiting for the ham to get done and then we're eating!

Happy Thanksgiving and Bon Appetite!

Just got done smoking a turkey

Oh? Was that legalized under amendment 64 too?

Happy Thanksgiving all!

And definitely Pumpkin!

Pumpkin? Apple?

Am I the only one left who likes mince? Can't even find it in the store to make one.

Finntann said...

I like Mince! But you're right, it is getting harder and harder to find, especially the non-vegetarian kind.

Mince is more of a Christmas pie though, in my opinion.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Alligator said...

Happy Thanksgiving all. We have a lot to be thankful for, more than we often realize.

jez said...

We can get Mince (assuming we mean the same thing) easily over here. I am apparently in disgrace for making a batch of mince pies with bought mince instead of making my own though... to be fair it doesn't look that hard. Fruit, suet, spice, booze.

Mincemeat is for mature, highly developed palates. I disliked it as a child -- too vinegary at that stage. Today I prefer it to pumpkin, but not to the pumpkin CHIFFON pie my mother used to make from a recipe she found in The Woman's Home Companion Cookbook back in the 1940's.

I made it once, myself, and it was a LOT of work. My mother, even though she was a "fashion plate" in her day, was much given to performing great Labors of Love in the kitchen, God bless her!

In latter years, I developed a recipe of my own for cranberry, apple, raisin, walnut pie wit a pinwheel crust that frankly is to die for -- especially when served with a dollop of genuine whipped cream.

Best of all the tart-sweet holiday desserts, though is good old-fashioned English Plum Pudding served with my grandmother's brandied hard sauce.

If you make fruitcake, by the way, it should already be made by now, wrapped in cloths liberally soaked in rum or brandy, or it won't be worth much on The Great Day.

@cranberry, apple, raisin, walnut pie

That sounds good!
