The average cost for a Thanksgiving meal (feeding 8-10) is just under $50. Some families cannot afford the cost of the holiday - and many churches are doing something about it! Check with your church to see if there is an outreach this holiday season that you and your family can participate in!
Tomorrow morning, Joelle (from the Joy In The Morning team) will be broadcasting from Living Hope Ministries in Crisfield, MD! They are giving away 100 Thanksgiving meals to families in need! So head down to the docks and hang out!
Turkey Countdown: 5 DAYS
History of Cranberries (About):
The Pilgrims learned all about cranberries from the Native Americans, who recognized the natural preservative power (benzoic acid) in the berries. They used it to preserve meats over the long winter. They were a tart reprive from heavy food - but sugar was scarce, so the sauce we know and love (tolerate) today was not present at the first Thanksgiving. Cranberry sauce came into the picture via General Ulysses S. Grant who ordered it served to the troops during the seige of Petersburg in 1864. Cranberry sauce was first commercially canned in 1912 by the Cape Cod Cranberry Company.
