Are You Feeling Forgiving?

Carol Tenwalde

This is NOT Political - I promise!!!!

So we all know about the Presidential tradition of pardoning Turkeys at Thanksgiving but do you know how it started?

Back in 1926 Calvin Coolidge was given a RACCOON for Thanksgiving. The Mississippi giver promised Coolidge a "Toothsome" flavor.  The short story is Coolidge didn't want to appear ungrateful so he ended up pardoning it and his wife turned it into a pet "Rebecca the Raccoon". If you would like to read the full story click the pic.

I just can't imaging eating a raccoon but recipes can be found in Joy of Cooking my cooking Bible. I just can't get the phrase "You are what you eat" out of my head. I also connected you with one of my popular blog post - Coon Revenge


Don't know why but I'm starting to get the holiday spirit?

Since Christmas is just around the corner I just had to include this. Be good to yourself! Look for my exclusive Twisted Sister Cyber Monday Sale! 

Let's chat soon,
