thanksgivingThanksgiving is a wonderful time to gather around a festive table with your loved ones to enjoy turkey with the trimmings.

There’s something about taking the “homemade” aspect out of Thanksgiving dinner that turns it into just an ordinary day, but with a lot of food. I’m glad to put in the effort, as the effort is worth it, and reminds me of the sacrifices made by generations before me. Thanksgiving dinner honors that tradition. And, besides, it all tastes SO much better than…what….potatoes out of a box?! Another idea to consider is making the dinner a group effort–have everyone bring a dish instead of doing it all yourself.
Either way—enjoy the day with your family and friends.
