Our hands are often weathered, cracked, and dirty. We like to think we can fix just about anything and we always seem to have the right tool conveniently tucked in our back pocket. We work long hours in the hot and cold just so they can go to bed and do it all again the next day with a smile on their faces.
While this description can and does apply to many hard working men and women across the country, we are the less than one percent of Americans who work to put food on the tables of families down the road and around the world. We’re American farmers and ranchers.
During this holiday season, I want to thank you – the consumer – for your trust in the food we produce. Thank you for your trust. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to do exactly the thing we were called to do each and every day
This is one of my favorite recipes from the What’s Cookin’ in Spalding Cookbook, the original version. It goes great with the Green Bean Casserole recipe (posted here) , and Layered Lettuce Salad and Apple Dessert that I’ll be posting soon! It is great for family gatherings this Christmas time.
