"So the pie isn't perfect? Cut it into wedges. Stay in control, and never panic." - Martha Stewart 

It's almost time for that most American of holidays, when we gather around the table to give thanks. Don't have your plans yet? Don't worry, check our Explore Warren's handy page of ideas for Thanksgiving Dinners and Pies! Let these fine establishments do the cooking for you - and if you eat at their establishment, the cleaning up, too! Or the baking, like the pies pictured here, courtesy of Buttercups Bake Shoppe's Facebook page. Meanwhile, we'd like to give a special welcome to all the new subscribers who signed up for Warren County Wanderings in our recent contest, and congratulations to Gregory Grant of Mine Hill, NJ, who won two tickets to see the Giants play the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday. (Let's hope for a better result for the Giants this time!) Read on for ideas of things to do as you explore this beautiful corner of the Garden State. Happy Wanderings!
