It's Cranberry Day! At Granny's House, always on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, the children gather to listen to our annual reading of the classic children's book Cranberry Thanksgiving by Wende and Harry Devlin. And the best part is that the kids get to make and bake the "secret" Cranberry Bread recipe from the story. Aubrey, my oldest daughter and the mother of six of my grandchildren, heads this up....and figures out a way to include every child present in some part of the mixing and baking. Then, the fragrant, delicious bread becomes Wednesday morning's breakfast! You know...Wednesday, the heaviest cooking day of the year when even the most conscientious mommies serve their children Pop-Tarts for breakfast? Well this is a wonderful and festive alternative to something out of a box and we wouldn't think of doing it any other way! The first smells of the holidays greeted us today :-)
UPDATE: Cranberry Bread gone. A very nice snack for the mommies and Granny while on our feet for hours on end making yummy stuff for Thanksgiving Dinner. Thank you, kids!
