Happy Basket Day!  Nothing like mountains of fresh produce to chase away the winter chill.  I stocked up a bit for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday by contributing for a Conventional basket, Thanksgiving Hostess Pack, assorted rolls and a case of persimmons. The Hostess Pack is amazing, isn’t it?  Everything needed to round out your Thanksgiving Day dinner.  I initially planned to serve the rolls with our Thanksgiving dinner, but I’m not sure they will last that long (so good!!!).
