It’s Not all Thanksgiving or Recipes for Pilgrims

November 24th, 2009 by admin

We haven’t been blogging (and by ‘we’ I mean those of us in costume), but we’ve been busy. Lots of people coming by to see us; lots of schoolchildren, too. That sounds like schoolchildren aren’t people, which isn’t what I mean, although there IS something fluky about critical mass and energy and the presence of chickens, no doubt a very interesting behavioral study waiting to happen.
And the press – have you seen us in the Globe? ( They covered us (and by us, I mean ME, along with some others) on November 13th, National Indian Pudding Day. You did celebrate National Indian Pudding Day, didn’t you? Here’s what I hope will be a link to the How2Heroes website, which is featuring a video on Indian Pudding starring – ME!
And then there was the Cape Cod Times …and the Boston Herald and the AP article and the radio station in San Fransisco, and the one in Vermont, and the one in Louisiana, and the one in…it’s not just the food, it’s the ways.

    FINALLY got to watch the video. I couldn’t figure out how to embed it in our pudding-contest blog, but I DID link to it. Congratulations, Kathleen, and all of Plimoth on this new stardom……

    Thank you, thank-you. My apron was crafted by Megan, apprentice extraordinaire, with my initials painted up in the corner. I’ve been making Indian pudding for the Plimoth Cinema on Saturdays, although we’ll be taking a break until January 15th.And Tinky,I’ve got an Indian Pudding Ice Cream recipe if you’d like.
