  1. Ooh, I loved this! It made me salivate, and I learned something too!

  2. Great post! We played a family game during Thanksgiving..how do you spell..hordehourve? hordeourves? horderves? It was a funny, full of laughter game. It is really hard to remember how to spell it! Actually I think I won the prize, because I practiced it for days before the family gathering, but now I’ve forgotten it again. Really enjoyed this post, in fact I’m getting hungry just reading it.
