Food For Thought-Monthly Challenge

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, 
but the parent of all the others.

We celebrate Thanksgiving with gratitude for the bounty in our lives. What 

could be more fun than writing a story about food. This is your chance.

Pat Zietlow Miller's book, Sharing the Bread, journey's back to a time gone 

by. A family prepares a Thanksgiving feast together.

"We will share the risen bread.

Our made-with-love Thanksgiving spread.

Grateful to be warm and fed.

We will share the bread."

Applesauce Day by Lisa Amstutz tells the story of another family's tradition of 

making applesauce in the same pot that has been in their family for generations.

I spy the big pot on the counter right away.

"Hooray!" I say. "It's Applesauce Day!"

  Hannah cheers.

Ezra bangs his spoon.

Check out this delicious story about friendship.

Time to make the doughnuts. Pat Miller tells the true story of Captain Gregory in 

The Hole Story of the Doughnut.

Few remember the master mariner

Hanson Crockett Gregory, though

he was bold and brave and bright.

But the pastry he invented more than

166 years ago is eaten by doughnut

lovers everywhere. This is his story.

Wishing you all many blessings for a Happy Thanksgiving. Share with us in 

the comments your favorite books about food. Happy writing.
