Eat Up! Thanksgiving Food!
Thanksgiving is the best holiday, right? Right. But let me tell you why. One word, Food. Ah now you’re interested, aren’t you? Traditional Thanksgiving food includes roast turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, corn, dinner rolls, cranberry sauce, and of course, pumpkin pie. But if you add some nontraditional foods, the skies the limit. There can be any kind of chip and dip, and then of course there’s that one aunt that brings her “famous” casserole. Then there’s that other aunt that doesn’t want herself or her kids to eat anything because it’s not healthy. And don’t forget about the 40 cousins and the one grandma who sit there and micromanage every detail of preparing the food.
Oh and the pies! Cherry, apple, chocolate, pecan, blueberry, key lime, coconut, strawberry, cheesecake, rhubarb, sweet potato, blackberry, lemon meringue, cream, peach cobbler, four-layer delight, and so many others. You can thank your other crazy relative who likes to bring all the pies.
The weather completes a wonderful holiday. The usual crisp and cool weather makes Thanksgiving ten times better. Not only is it a time to be with family but it’s also a great time to be with friends.
“Every year after Thanksgiving all of our friends take the leftover food and we get together and have a Friendsgiving!” -Savannah Stark
See, how fun is that? Not to mention that you get to eat some of your friend’s weird relative’s food. So hold off on the Christmas music and decorations for now and celebrate Thanksgiving - a time of delicious food and weird relatives, which clearly makes it the BEST holiday!
