The Thanksgiving meal passes SO quickly – capture a part of it and upload your photos here.
I'm an optimist: My turkey will come out of the oven a deep caramel brown color. I won't burn the apple pie crust. I will have enough matching napkins for the table. Or maybe not. Either way, I find the actual meal part is over so fast that I like to take some pictures along the way to remember it all. I'll be sharing my pictures today. I hope you do too. And don't forget the prep pictures – they tend to be the best!

Thanksgiving is a week away. Several area shops can help take some of the work out of your day.
Thanksgiving is days away. If you're like me, your panic level is beginning to rise. But have no fear. There is plenty of help right here in East Greenwich. Let's start with turkeys. Need a bird? For the first time (in recent history anyway), you can buy an East Greenwich pastured-raised bird at Pat's Pastured, the farming business at Boesch Farm on South Road. If you haven't reserved a bird, take your chances on Tuesday between 2 to 7 p.m., when turkeys are being picked up. There will be centerpieces, pies and vegetables for sale at the farm that day too. Check out the vendors here. At Dave's Marketplace, there are many different kinds of turkeys to choose from, including two "natural" varieties. You can have Dave's make it "oven ready…

Saturday, December 3, 2011
Meadowbrook Farms School held its annual Take & Bake Thanksgiving pie event on the Tuesday, Nov. 22. The event was a huge success with 55 students in kindergarten through third grade taking part. The students had fun preparing their own apple pies and topping them with unique creative designs. They also came away with a big sense of accomplishment, knowing they were contributing to their family’s holiday meal. In addition, the event raised close to $500 for the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. For every $1 donated, the Food Bank is able to acquire and distribute 3 pounds of food. That means the Meadowbrook Take & Bake event will help to put almost 1,500 pounds of food on the tables of those who need it. Great job kids! This article was …

Much like the Dallas Cowboys, the Narragansett Mariners kept things interesting on Thanksgiving, as they struggled to control their emotions and hang on to the football against a weaker-on-paper East Greenwich team. However, the Mariners (7-4, 6-2 Division III) scored with about four minutes remaining on an 18-yard run to the right by senior Francis Castrovillari. He finished with three touchdowns, part of a dominant rushing attack with seniors Mark Griffith (18 carries for 177 yards) and Willie Perkins (18 for 135). Unfortunately for Narragansett, they struggled to play under control against East Greenwich (4-7, 3-5 Division III). The Mariners were penalized 16 times for 155 yards, and also had five fumbles, three of which they lost. …

We hear from a few people around town this past week about what they're thankful for.
We visited Christ Community Kitchen Monday evening, and on Wednesday found a few more people in town willing to share their thoughts, including Dana Wronski at Greenwich Bay Gourmet/Tio Mateo's, downtown regular Popeye, and Jane Parillo of Scribe and Janice O'Connell of Sprigs. What are we at EG Patch thankful for? You. Happy Thanksgiving!
From turkey to family - kids share their thoughts.
The Thanksgiving holiday makes people reflect on what they are thankful for throughout the year. Students at Eldredge and Hanaford told us what they like about Thanksgiving and what they are thankful for this year.
