Thanksgiving Day is the favorite holiday in our house as it’s all about the food and football. There are other traditions we include, like being thankful adventurers came to America over the past few centuries and now we can roast a turkey in apricot glaze. This includes appreciation for innovation that brings us electricity and aluminum foil. We also like being able to watch the Macy’s parade in NYC on our TV in Oregon.
Today is the food preparation day for me. I’m not doing the turkey but am making some sides, treats, and the traditional sausage stuffing. The variation this year is I am making the sausage with turkey and personal control over the ingredients. I am thankful I do not have any dietary issues and am fascinated to learn modifications to old recipes so they can be enjoyed by all. No one will miss the lack of pork fat with our fowl.
Happy Thanksgiving – Be Grateful Daily!
