"Going Undercover." Thought this was about the 2020 summer riots, oops, I mean non-violent protests, until I got to the last panel.

Happy Thanksgiving Miss C.

From someone who grew up with mincemeat pie for the holidays. Because old people. Yum! 😋

Yes, mincemeat is the magic pie that makes the whole day with kin worthwhile.

The pumpkin pie story...
“Every year, the Pumpkin Lobby (note to self: maybe see if this is actually a thing) gets together and convinces the world that every single novelty food item made between September 21st and November 30th must contain pumpkin."

NO! Pumpkin SPICE, NO PUMPKIN, just the spice used in pumpkin pie which is a mixture of Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice and ginger. Pumpkin has a very mild flavor which is why the spices are needed.

Pumpkin cake sounds interesting.

I really like pumpkin cheesecake; better than pumpkin pie.
