Thanksgiving is a time to gather with friends and family and give thanks for the blessings we have. Whether it’s the family you were born to or the family you have chosen, when the family gets together there will be food.
Turkey and stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, cornbread, and green bean casserole are all traditional Thanksgiving dinner dishes. The side dishes may vary from year to year, but there are always plenty. And let’s not forget about the pie – pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie, or sweet potato pie, with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream. Yum.
Thanksgiving and the following holidays are filled with food, family, and friends. Gatherings large and small tend to congregate in the kitchen and serving food is a symbol of love and welcome. A snack before or after traveling, a toast to the season or occasion, hearty meals and an abundance of leftovers fill the holiday season.
When families and friends gather ‘round, and travel takes us across the country or around the world, schedules shift or disappear altogether. During the holidays eating patterns may shift and selections may vary from what we consume on a day to day basis. It’s hard to say no to treats we’ve loved since childhood, or meals that remind us of a different time and place.
We all know we should limit our portion sizes, alternate water with alcoholic beverages, fill up on vegetables first and eat off a smaller plate. But knowing something and doing it can be two different things. No one wants to pass on Grandma’s family recipe or your favorite Aunts homemade dessert.
