Personal Notes:
A family favorite with a family story.
As the story goes, the family was enjoying Thanksgiving dinner and some one asked for the fruit salad. Some one replied, "Oh, help yourself!" The next time one of the children requested the fruit salad he asked, "could I please have some help yourself?" It has kept that name ever since and is always a staple for a Thanksgiving meal.
