My grandmother got the recipe out of an Army Wives cookbook around about WWII if that helps.
I don't do anything to dress up the back of the bag recipe, but I imagine I could sub some of the water with OJ and sub in some holiday spicing like cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. I just haven't tried it yet.

First of all I do not think anyone should need a holiday to give thanks, particularly one that is based on such a convoluted history full of half truths and lies like this one is and has been.
All this holiday does is jump start a monetarily commercialized silly economic system.
It leads to another ridiculous holiday that is steeped in manure.
What will we be eating? Something that doesn't require a fake family gathering where everyone pretends to give a crap.

What am I thankful for? Mr. Cheddarhead had a heart attack earlier this month and LIVED! He's got a long road ahead of him, but he's home now.
We're going to dinner at his daughter's tomorrow for turkey, mashed potatoes and rolls. It's just a meal, I truly don't care about the food.

That's awesome !
What a great idea, celebrating two thanksgivings.
If it were up to me I'd celebrate both Thanksgivings, Christmas, Hannukah, Ukranian Christmas, Sinterklaas, Saturnalia, Festivus, Kwanzaa, New Year's, Chinese New Year's...
Any excuse to decorate the house, rally with loved ones, stuff our faces, and make merry !
