A Cornucopia of Fun Game....and a Reader's Choice Giveaway!



Hey, Connie! You're the winner of the contest! Email me at www.danamentink.com and tell me which ebook you'd like. Thanks to all who participated! 






Oh yes! Smell that turkey baking? See that glistening cranberry pineapple salad? Yep, it's Thanksgiving time, and man oh man are we food blessed here at Mentink Manor. We start dinner early so we can do lots of talking and then line up the leftovers for later. We pass around the little candle that Yogi made her kindergarten year...or was it Boo Boo? And we share what we're thankful for. (It's a long list). One of the things that blesses me is ...YOU! The wonderful readers out there who enjoy my books. So here's a fun 'get to know you' game. I'll pick a winner next week and that
person can choose any title from my website. I'll gift you a Kindle copy of your choice. There's also a recipe below from my table to yours and a link to my Facebook page because I'm doing a flash giveaway of a box of See's Candy soon. Sound good? Let's get started!

He always loved Thanksgiving Day because, even though there were very few Christmas presents, his farm family always enjoyed a very good Thanksgiving meal. I love that November was his birthday month, my birthday month and the month of Thanksgiving.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you!
