Often Overlooked, Seriously Underrated
I LOVE Thanksgiving. It's probably my favorite holiday. Sure, it doesn't have the sparkle of other winter holidays or the anticipation of spring that Passover and Easter bring. It usually doesn't involve fireworks, sparklers, or grilling paraphernalia. But there is a heck of a parade!
What Thanksgiving lacks in glitz, it more than makes up for in comfort. For our celebration, we divvy up the dishes and always end up with a jaw-droppingly outstanding spread. (It doesn't hurt that I am affiliated with some phenomenal cooks.) There are always friends who join us for the feast and the evening is spent talking, watching movies, and relaxing. I love the warm herbs and spices that we use to flavor our dishes: sage and thyme, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon. And really, what's better than the desserts that end up on the Thanksgiving menu?
If you're looking for inspiration for your Thanksgiving feast, there are plenty of cookbooks available at any Richland Library location. Here are some suggestions to get you started.
