On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the most brilliant and terse descriptions of the democratic ideal and vision. Apparently, Mr. Lincoln felt very unwell on the day of his train ride from Washington to Gettysburg, so his White House cook Alice Johnstone made a special potato chowder soup with biscuits and gravy on the side to send with him.

“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!
