“Riddle D Riddle Da lets all enjoy my Riddles TaDa”
they belong to me
they belong to you
they can make you feel happy
or make you feel blue
they never end
until the day you do?
They say it can come from your ears
it can also generate fear
some people love to do it
indirectly some chew it
it's not welcome in a house
it's quiet as a mouse
What, pray tell, can it be?
HOW WILL YOU CELEBRATE YOUR TURKEY DAY ?
From turkeys and hams to Mac and cheese, oh my let’s eat! Thanksgiving is almost here everyone. The big question being asked is how do you celebrate thanksgiving? Different cultures such as Canadians and Indians as well all celebrate in many different ways. But although they have differences they all have one thing in common, they all give thanks to someone on that day.
I myself as an American doesn’t do anything traditional. I and my immediate family on my mother’s side get together at my grandmother’s house. She cooks a big dinner which obviously includes the main dish the turkey. Before dinner the family say’s grace and then just have a moment of silence for lost family members. As well as Americans Canadians celebrate in their own way too.
During the American Revolution, Americans who remained loyal to England moved to Canada where they brought the customs and practices of the American Thanksgiving to Canada. Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving on the 2nd Monday of October. The farmers in Europe held celebrations at harvest time. They fill a curved goat's horn with fruit and grain to give thanks for their good fortune and the abundance of food. In much the same way as our American neighbors Families gather, friends visit and loved ones make a special effort to be home and share a meal.
As for Indians, they ask that you offer a silent prayer for the spirits of those who were sacrificed so long ago. Then after that they eat a traditional dinner which includes a turkey, corn, cranberry sauce, succotsc, and other things of that nature. “Most Indians these days don’t really celebrate like they used to” as said by Danesha Parnell a junior here at THS.
DON’T HAVE A THANKSGIVING DESSERT? WELL THIS SHOULD HELP!
· Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
· For the crust, beat the butter and granulated sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, until light, approximately 3 minutes. Add the eggs and the vanilla and mix well. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix the dry ingredients into the batter with the mixer on low speed until just combined. Press the dough evenly into an ungreased 18 by 12 by 1-inch baking sheet, making an edge around the outside. It will be very sticky; sprinkle the dough and your hands lightly with flour. Bake for 15 minutes, until the crust is set but not browned. Allow to cool.
· For the topping, combine the butter, honey, brown sugar, and zests in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Cook over low heat until the butter is melted, using a wooden spoon to stir. Raise the heat and boil for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the heavy cream and pecans. Pour over the crust, trying not to get the filling between the crust and the pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the filling is set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold. Cut into bars and serve.
ALL THIS SHOULD TAKE ANYMORE THAN 45MINUTES YIELD: 20 SQUARES
When it all boils down to it everyone has their different ways to celebrate Thanksgiving. Even if it’s from tradional dinners to just doing your own thing at least you’re still giving thanks on that day. I Hope everyone has a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!
