Not to cause immediate stress but Thanksgiving is 17 days away.
How do you celebrate Thanksgiving? Is it a big day with family or is it more low key? Does everyone eat at the dining room table, or is it more casual where you just line up, fill your plate and then scatter throughout the house to have conversations while getting down with your overindulgence of food?
As a kid mine was pretty low key. It was my direct family and it was almost at the exact time of 1PM. Mom would make the meal, dad would help out peeling the potatoes and carving the turkey. I would help out by eating 4 or 5 biscuits. Goodness, I love biscuits, don’t you?
One thing that’s pretty much stayed a staple for Thanksgiving is Kraft’s Stove Top Stuffing. My mom would make this every single holiday. Even now as I’m older and have my own Thanksgiving tradition with friends in NYC, I still love this stuff. I’ve tried other gourmet brands that cost $12 a bag. I’ve tried making my own (delicious, but I’m always worried about time on Thanksgiving day). One thing that Matthew and I both agree on, Stove Top can’t be beat. It’s nostalgic but it’s delicious. It’s the kind of thing you make on your stovetop and immediately need to eat a forkful to eat. Ok 2. Ok 3. It has a special place in my stuffing loving heart.
What’s my other favorite part of Thanksgiving? No, not the pumpkin pie. And no, not watching A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Although I love both of those. My favorite is…..
Oh baby, I love leftovers!
