Just because I’m a bit confurious (confused + curious) sometimes, I decided to search the library catalog using the word “holiday”. My reasons are a bit convoluted, but it boils down to – “Merry Christmas” vs. “Happy Holidays”.
How about something different on the Thanksgiving table this year. The library has a wide selection of cookbooks to peruse. Try something new! It may become a new family classic.
