Apologies for the non-politics-related posting today. Hopefully, our loyal readers are spending time with family and (or) the people they love this Thanksgiving. We here at DC Progressive are thankful for our President, Congress debating health care reform, a path to the an end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, our troops overseas, roofs over our heads, and food in our stomach, friends and family, pie (of all kinds), and finally, you, our readers.
In terms of interesting things to spend your time doing between cooking and socializing, the New York Times has a great interactive map showing the words people are searching to find recipes for Thanksgiving. Apparently, sweet potato casserole is the number one recipe this holiday season. Yours truly is currently located in California, where people eat yams instead of sweet potatoes, and only seem to cook stuffing, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes. New Englanders eat apple pie and Southerners love their casseroles and Mac and Cheese. Happy eating and happy Thanksgiving everyone!
