GIVE...THANKS...

Ahh...the famous American Green Bean Casserole! Who can forget this classic side dish for Thanksgiving and Christmas from the famous Campbell's Soup company...originated way back in 1955, when it was made with canned green beans; yikes! Graduating to frozen green beans in the seventies...and now, made with fresh green beans, but still the same recipe! Can't leave out the 'cream of mushroom' soup, or the French's fried onions, otherwise you will lose the original concept!
I have such fond memories of past Thanksgiving, growing up in midwest, Ohio...remembering the super cold weather; most years on Thanksgiving without snow...unlike what they are having at this time of the year with so much snow all over the country. Also, at this time of year we must remember our 'homeless' and 'hungry' people that live right here in the 'country of plenty'; we are all responsible to give...and 'Give Thanks' if we have our health, family, a 'roof' over our heads...and enough food to eat!

This year...as of the last few years, we've been sharing Thanksgiving with 3 other families...the 'more, the merrier'! Do you see the little 'red' magic button on the breast of the turkey?...well, that's what makes it perfect...no under cooking...no over cooking the turkey! The stuffing is just the plain and simple herb stuffing!

  1. Elisabeth, gyönyörű ételek készültek erre a szép ünnepre! Bizony, mindannyiunknak hálát kell adnunk a minket ért örömökért, de a nehézségekért is, amik által lelkileg erősödünk. Nemes dolog, hogy gondolsz nehéz sorsú embertársaira is.
    Boldog Hálaadási Ünnepet kívánok családoddal, barátaiddal együtt!

    1. Kedves Marisz, nagyon de nagyon hálás vagyok a gyönyörü szép kommentedre! Bizony, hálát kell adnunk a minden napi örömért...sajnos a nehézségek néha meg gyötörik az embert, és itt ebben a gazdag országban sok ember otthontalan, és éhezik, de ezen az egy napon, senki sem éhezik, mert mindenki osztozik étellel ezen a napon. Jó volna minden napra is!
