As the Holiday approaches, we’re all wrapped up in what goes on the table, the people surrounding us and possibly the shopping on the Friday after. Remember to take a moment to feel grateful and to catch up with those you love. Cooking and baking ahead of the big day, will certainly help with the stress of getting the food on the table on time & allowing you to have more time with the ones you love. I always cook & bake most of my menu the day before Thanksgiving all day from 7:30 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. with my daughter. It’s been a tradition for over a decade for me. We put on Christmas music, work on our multi- generational recipes passed down to us, dance & sing (with a few breaks in between) the whole day! It’s one of my most treasured times of the year! With my children growing up (now adults) & only one child left in school, I feel how important this tradition is even more so. What traditions do you have?
We’ll be spending the holiday as we have for years at my aunt’s home on Thanksgiving, where we make a few dishes & then have a second Thanksgiving on the Friday following. We try to squeeze a little shopping in as well. 😉🦃
