Holiday Cooking

She Rode a Flaming Turkey

“She rode a flaming turkey, she held a shining spoon. She she came to cook some vittles for her folks in the room,” Frankie Laine wrote in some altered lyrics for “Blazing Saddles.” You, too, can come whooping and hollering into Thanksgiving Day with some great food, wielding a mighty spoon! We’d love to cook some things for your Thanksgiving table. Have a look at our starters, sides, breads, and desserts to see how we can help you have a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with your family.

Cooking for Your Thanksgiving Day Table

Thanksgiving Day remains a very important day for us to express our gratitude for the goodness and faithfulness of God in our lives. Folks get together with families and friends, celebrating and remembering how good life truly is. Sure, most of us will probably eat too much, but let’s think just a little differently. Can we really be too full of gratitude? Let our full bellies reflect the fullness of our hearts in deep gratitude for how God has given into our lives.

Famous Gratitude Quotes

William Law asked a powerful question and provided a wonderful answer in his devotional work A Devout and Serious Call. Have a listen: “Would you know who is the greatest saint in the world? It is not he who prays most or fasts most; is not he who gives most alms, or is more eminent for temperance, chastity, or justice; but it is he who is always thankful to God who wills everything that God willeth, who receives everything as an instance of God’s goodness, and has a heart always ready to praise God for it.”
