It’s time to play Thursday Two Questions a meme hosted by Blessing Reflections! Join me now, as we continue this cyber journey to get better acquainted.
This is early, I know, but I love traditions! Especially, for the holidays. There is something almost scared about well thought out plans for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The aroma of sage basted turkey floating through the house or the spicy pumpkin scent cascading from the oven to my nose embraces my being with a secure warmth.
As I said, I’m a traditionalist. I fix the usual for Thanksgiving and Christmas: ham, turkey, dressing, green beans, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pies, pecan pies, black walnut cake (for Christmas) cranberry compote, and yeast rolls. There isn’t anything fancy in the way I prepare my dishes, but the meal turns out fabulous or at least that’s what I’m told.
Prior to preparing my mouth-watering meal, I painstakingly set up our 6′ feet artificial Christmas with the help of my son. We string about 800-1000 tiny Christmas lights on our beautiful fake tree, which we got through Christmas In America. We don’t put the ornaments on until a time we can do it as a family, which is usually the weekend we have our Thanksgiving meal.
This is just a teeny look into our family holiday traditions. Now, here are my Thursday Two Questions:
1. Do you do anything special or unusual in preparing any of these typical traditional Thanksgiving dishes included in our meal or do you prepare a non-traditional menu?
2. Do you and your family enjoy watching the American icons on Thanksgiving: Macy’s Day Parade and pro football?
