Kev’s Daily Take On 11/27/2022

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands,
One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Religious Holidays

FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT marks the beginning of the Advent season which is set aside to prepare for the coming of Christ – both as a babe in a manger and also to await His second return.

For Fun

SECONDHAND SUNDAY is about the regifting of presents to help our planet.  Buying secondhand items can be cheaper for your pocketbook as well as giving the manufacturing of goods behemoth a break.

On Today’s Menu…

Big Oven

CRAFT JERKY DAY will give your home that savory smokehouse smell.  Get your dehydrator rolling as you fill it with strips of seasoned, marinated meat.  After about 10 hours, you will have your own delicious jerky.

Our dessert of the day serves up a nice slice of BAVARIAN CREAM PIE DAY.  Coming to us all the way from France, this sweet custard-based pie is a nice encore to a Thanksgiving weekend.
