Dear everybody,

As we observe Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S., we’ve got a treat for you. If you’ve got 30 minutes to spare from holiday-ing, we think you’ll enjoy this episode of the Playing on Air podcast.

It’s a very short play by Hamish Linklater called Thanksgiving for One, and it stars the the famous, formidable, and hilarious Jean Smart. She’s been having quite a run lately, what with Mare of Easttown and Hacks. Linklater himself plays the only other character, a waiter at a Ruth’s Chris Steak House on Thanksgiving Day, 2020. Listen here.

We send everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving today our warmest wishes for a day of gratitude, reflection, and connection. And just in case you came here this morning looking for the 1960 Pillsbury Bake Off’s prizewinning Dilly Casserole Bread, here it is.

  • My copy of that Pillsbury bakeoff is well used and remains in my cookbook collection to this day… I was 13 when I first made this bread as well as anise cookie recipe. Fond memories, perfect for Thanksgiving!

  • Just a reminder: Among Indigenous people of the U.S. and Canada, this day is observed as A Day of Mourning.

  • Thankful for this community, every day. With all respect to those who mourn.
