Bless This Food November 17, 2017
Have you ever seen anyone pray before eating their burger combo? Maybe not. But our guest Adrian Butash says, maybe it would be a good idea.

So before you polish off your Thanksgiving feast, we thought we’d pause and reflect on this small act of gratitude. From 2013.
