Giving Thanks

Have you ever gone to a Thanksgiving dinner where you hardly knew anyone? Besides the obvious loneliness factor of not having someone to reminisce with, you are also “food lonely.” Food lonely?

As much as we would like to believe that Thanksgiving is about getting together and having relationships with people, we have an equally enticing romance with food. If you don’t believe me, try cooking Thanksgiving dinner and inviting a bunch of family over but instead of having a turkey, serve pizza.

Maybe turkey isn’t your thing but every family has at least one magical dish that they wait all year long for to overindulge. In our family, it is “GreenStuff,” which is some kind of pudding, cream cheese, nut bread….can’t really tell you what it is because it’s a family secret. Guarded like the Swiss Guard watches over the Pope.

So whatever your pleasure, give thanks for it because Thanksgiving gives us an opportunity to have traditions amongst our families.

Happy Pizza Day…Oops, I mean, Happy Turkey Day!
