While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

Just in time for Thanksgiving, November 23 is National Cranberry Day. Often thought of as indispensable to the traditional holiday menu, cranberry sauce can be slathered on turkey, stuffing or whatever else your stomach desires.

About 95 percent of the cranberry crop is used for products such as juice drinks and dried cranberries – plain and raw cranberries may be too bitter for the average consumer.

As for us, we’ll take ours in the form of a Cape Codder, thank you very much.

    I see the Tommy troll is posting this morning. Looks like he is toning it down a bit for now to keep from being blocked.

      He reminds me of something Richard Nixon's parents should have done-It was called the "Withdrawl Method!" Sorry Truth,NO Politics on a Food Blog.

    'Morning guys...Truly ugly game last night. I was making dinner for my bride and every time I looked up it was far worse. I think McDaniels needs to go. He's had two seasons to show it and has failed.

      If I read between the lines of your post-You are requesting a new Coach, possibly one that is adapted to cold weather and has recently been canned? Speaking of cold weather YOU have a Big AZZ storm headed your way!

        I am hoping for Cowher, but I am not sure he wants the job. Denver can be tough.

        Actually the mountians have been getting pounded this month. They are actually measuring it by the foot, which is great, since I am a skier, but also because it is where Denver gets its water supply from. Always nice to have water, you know?

      Denver was hurting last night, maybe they'll have better luck against St Louis.

    Good Morning All-I woke up this morning with chest pains only to realize it was Wonder Dog laying across me. She needs to lose some weight. Sorry about the game last night-even WD covered her eyes and she hasn't done that since Dallas was 1-7. Hope our Brother gets settled in this morning.

      Yeah, my hat is off to the guy. Takes a lot of courage to face your demons.

        Morning and thanks.

        I look forward to him getting better and the three of you ripping on "hittin' that." Way too funny.
