Thanksgiving Traditions

Thanksgiving means so much to me and to my family. More than all the delicious food, it’s a time many of us who live far apart can be together. For some of my family, it’s the only day of year we get to see each other, so it’s even more special. We hang out with dogs. And new baby cousins. And carve a massive turkey.

We fill our plates with traditional and innovative sides. We eat pumpkin pie. Some years we eat rice pudding. I take a bike ride with my Dad around the neighborhood.

This year we aren’t making it home for Thanksgiving. We’ll be fending for ourselves in Austin, so I’m starting to think about my menu. Should we do a traditional meal or do something totally off the wall? Maybe we’ll make a healthy turkey soup. Or my famous turkey chili.

No matter what we eat, I’m planning a stylish table scape. Ombre glasses and colorful platters add sparkle and a festive atmosphere to one the year’s most important meals.

    My bf & I are fending for ourselves in Austin, too! It is going to be interesting seeing as we’ve never cooked a Turkey Day meal ourselves… we were always spoiled in having our parents do it! I’m excited to see what we come up with, though. Good luck! 🙂
