My youngest grandson, Johnny, came home from school with this recipe from his 2nd grade class teacher. He was told to make it with someone for Thanksgiving...he chose me, his Grammy. This was several years ago. Needless to say...it has become a tradition, one that I hope will go on for a very long time.
