Day 24 – Thanksgiving
It might sound strange but I’m thankful for Thanksgiving Day. It’s the underdog of holidays, often over-shadowed by its big brother, Christmas. Today I’m giving thanks for a holiday that symbolizes the gratitude I have in my heart for my country, my family and friends, my community and all that is good. I hate it that every year Thanksgiving Day gets trampled on and lost in the confusion of holiday store sales.
I have so many wonderful memories of past Thanksgivings and I treasure them. There are so many of my loved ones whose faces I wish I could still see, who have passed on. In a way they are still with us. My Aunt Ruth’s macaroni casserole, my grandmother’s dressing balls, my mother’s 5 cup salad. They are at every holiday event.
What about you? What recipes do you use that have been passed down from generation to generation? Tell us about them!
