Kids share humourous Thanksgiving recipes

From ‘burning’ turkey to mashed potatoes cooked at 3,000 degrees, students share recipes and blessings

Before they all left for Thanksgiving break, area elementary students were asked a few questions about the Thanksgiving. First graders from St. Rose and Mimosa Park Elementary offered some fun, and often insightful, words about Thanksgiving food and blessings. You can view them all, with the responses alongside each child’s picture, by picking up the Nov. 27 issue of the St. Charles Herald-Guide.
