Thanksgiving Recipe For A Home


Yeah, I know the last thing you want right about now is another Thanksgiving recipe.  The internet is exploding with ideas and you cannot stand on line at the super market checkout without being belted with magazines claiming the best stuffing or a sure fire way to roast a turkey.


Just the other day I was looking through some of my mom’s old cookbooks and recipes.  One book I always enjoy, and have added countless recipes to this site from, is our Friscia Family Recipe book.  This little gem was complied by two of my cousins and my Aunt Rose for a family reunion and includes recipes shared by a host of great home chefs.

The following recipe appeared on page 46 and I’m sure it was designed not only as filler but as a look into what our family life and I’m sure many of yours was like.

“Recipe For A Home”

Half a cup of friendship

And a cup of thoughtfulness.

Creamed together with a pinch

Of powered tenderness.

Very lightly beaten

In a bowl of loyality

With a cup of faith, one of hope

And one of charity

Be sure to add a spoonful each

Of gaiety that sings,

And also the ability

To laugh at the little things.

Moisten with sudden tears

Of heartfelt sympathy.

Bake in a good nurtured pan and serve repeatedly.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.  Enjoy Your Family!!
