Thanksgiving Day is Finally Here!


This year I've been thinking a lot about the non-traditional foods some families add to their Thanksgiving tables. My friend J from Miami looks forward to his sister's Cuban Pastelitos. My friend K and her brother serve their grandmother's Polish goulash. That dish has become even more important this year as their mother passed away over the summer. When I spent time overseas every holiday meal included something from our collective heritages. I wrote about those feasts and my contribution (Swedish Meatballs Stroganoff) this week in Called to the Table.

Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the parades and football games, have some laughs with your family, and as Peppermint Patty says, just save me a drumstick and the neck.
