The First Thanksgiving


The story of the real first Thanksgiving: It was bean soup. It was in Florida, and it was Catholic.

Tomorrow instead of mashed sweet potato with marshmallows on top (yucchh!!) we’re going going to serve baked beans as a side dish. I suggest this should start a new Catholic American custom.

    I’ll certainly agree with the baked beans, but don’t underrate the sweet potato. They’re quite good if you don’t ruin them with mashing and marshmallows.

    Actually, sweet potatoes are quite good even if you don’t mash ‘em and top them with butter and marshmallow. Besides, I have it on good authority that the alcohol cancels out the calories.
