Happy Thanksgiving! Paco loves to use Thanksgiving as a reminder to be grateful and show gratitude for all the wonderful people and things in our lives. Some of the simplest things are the ones we often take for granted, like having a place to live, food, clean water, friends and family. It can be easy to forget these not so small things especially when times are hard! Join Paco and all of us at Postcard Pal this year as we use the holiday to pause and appreciate.
Enjoy one of Paco's favorite home baked rolls with your Thanksgiving meal too. Just follow his tasty Garlic and Rosemary Rolls recipe to add a special treat to your holiday plate. Thanks for being our Pal.
