For many, this past weekend was filled with enjoying a traditional meal with mashed potatoes and apple pie. In the past, preparing both of these dishes have caused me to endure achy, sore thumbs long after dinner is finished and forgotten. I am happy to say that this year was a Happy Thanksgiving as I was able to prepare both dishes with no lasting aches. I am so happy with my thumb splints. I do not need them all the time but when I do they are wonderful.
