Mangia Mondays:: Tried and True Side Dishes

How appropriate that Veteran’s Day falls during the month of giving thanks.

I am so grateful to my family, friends, neighbors across the country who have sacrificed so much for the safety and freedom of our country.

Thank you to our United States Veterans!

God Bless our servicemen and women!


But the freedom that they fought for,
and the country grand they wrought for,
is their monument to-day, and for aye.
