New Look Is Impressive

While shopping at Price Chopper in Harrisonville, Missouri, many months ago, I looked at the magazines and was drawn to your Winter 2012 issue.

I don’t know when I’ve enjoyed a magazine like I did this issue. I have never had so much fun looking through a magazine.

I wish I knew exactly what it was that attracted me so much. It just seemed to bring back warm, loving feelings of holidays past.

Whoever put it together did so beautifully, making every page, article and recipe make me appreciate my country and my American heritage. In spite of all our country is going through, I’m so grateful for all we have.

I was born in 1937 in Dover, Kansas. I grew up in Topeka, and I remember Arthur Capper in the community.

In thinking of holidays past, namely Thanksgiving, I’d like to share a recipe from my past.
