Straight out of the past, and into the Thanksgiving feast.

Duplicating the recipe wasn’t cut and dry; she was not able to find full-on orange sherbet, and had to settle for orange/vanilla swirl. Still tasted good though!

I’m thankful for Jana Robertson, who provided this vintage Thanksgiving picture from 1969 (she’s in a middle behind the candle).

Hope you have a safe and happy holiday, filled with friends and good memories!
