A happy Thanksgiving, plus a cornbread recipe from the Veep-elect

We've run this Thanksgiving-themed Carole Lombard photo before, but since it combines several Hollywood notables, it's worth showing again.

For Thanksgiving 1936, Carole and Clark Gable had a holiday dinner at the 120-acre Marwyck Ranch in Northridge, co-owned by Barbara Stanwyck and Marion Marx. Pictured from right are Lombard, Gable, Marion Marx, Zeppo Marx, Stanwyck, Robert Taylor and a woman whose last name was Hart.

Let's fast-forward 84 years, now that the presidential election is for all intents and purposes decided, and look at the epicurean skills of one of our newly-elected officials. (Please note that this has no ideological angle whatsoever.) Meet Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, shown in the kitchen with writer and comedic actress Mindy Kaling (both are of Indian descent):

Earlier this week, Harris (whose ancestry is also Caribbean), tweeted one of her favorite recipes, one with a holiday angle:

"During difficult times I have always turned to cooking. This year, I wanted to share one of my family's favorite Thanksgiving recipes with you. I hope whenever you're able to make it in life, it brings you as much warmth as it has brought me -- even when separated from those I love."

Here's the recipe:

Even Republicans should be able to enjoy this (though if they don't want to cite the source, we'll understand).

I may suggest that recipe for our group home this Christmas. (Today, I made three pounds of turkey chili, which drew a positive response.)

More on the recipe at the Washington Post (https://www.washingtonpost.com/food/2020/11/25/kamala-harris-cornbread-dressing-recipe/), while the
Times of India profiled Harris as a foodie (https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/food-news/dosas-to-chicken-roast-kamala-harris-cooks-her-way-into-americas-heart/articleshow/79164460.cms).
