 “Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men,
but be careful that you do not take the day and leave out the gratitude.”
E.P. Powell

On this Thanksgiving Day, I wish to say that I am honored to have you in my life.  Thank you so much for joining me on my Everyday Bliss Journey. I wish you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving day.

I saw this on a sports blog called The Big Picture, and it made me chuckle so I thought I would share it. They thought they would rank Thanksgiving food! What would be your ranking? Turkey would be lower on my list and I can't believe they didn't have some apple pie, although I do like the pumpkin cheesecake idea! If the green beans have those crunchy onion things on them I would move them higher too! I particularly like that they distinguished two types of cranberries. Does anyone really bother with salad??

1. Stuffing
2. Gravy
3. Sweet potatoes with two pounds of butter and brown sugar
4. Turkey
5. Pumpkin cheesecake
6. Pumpkin pie
7. Pecan pie
8. Mashed potatoes
9. Jello-like cranberries
11. Squash soup
12. Biscuits

15. Salad
