Thanksgiving day food offers up my very favorite food collection of the year. For me, the food of Thanksgiving is steeped in tradition, tying generations of family together.When I was growing up, we would often be at my Granny’s house for Thanksgiving. I LOVED being there. I loved walking into her house and smelling the food that was cooking, but more than that, I loved seeing my grandmother. She would always be at her appointed place in front of the stove cooking what was guaranteed to be the most phenomenal food imaginable. Her food was simple, made with simple ingredients and blessed with love. Granny blessed me with even more love and I will always be eternally grateful to her for setting a beautiful example of what a grandmother should be. I always felt warm and safe when I was with her.
At some point, in a future post, I will dedicate the post to writing about Granny’s remarkable life. It is the stuff of which novels are written.
I’ve strayed, as usual. This post is a round-up of recipe ideas for Thanksgiving. Some of them are traditional in my family and some of them are new to our family.
Note: Please forgive some of the photography. I am learning to improve my skills. Some of these photos are from when I was a beginner. However, no matter the quality of the photos, the food represented here is very tasty!
