Hey, What About Thanksgiving? Recipes and Reflections
By ExpatChef on November 05, 2008
The Halloween candy has not even hit the bargain bin yet and already the shelves are going red and green. Wait a minute. Where's Thanksgiving?
You know, the holiday created around sharing our blessings with family and friends, cherishing what you have, not shopping for more? Oh yeah. That doesn't sell on the store shelves. And that is exactly why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. That, and it's a holiday with FOOD.
So, as you share a meal with your loved ones, cherish Thanksgiving. Give this very important holiday the time and thought it deserves.These are some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes, all my own, created for my family. There are also some great seasonal meals to help you get the most from local, seasonal eating.
