My Thanksgiving Table



My love of holidays is no secret. I ooze traditions and memories for my family... and nothing breeds more memories than FOOD!! One of my favorite holidays. ( Although honestly, Any Holiday that has to do with food are my favorite...)

I host Thanksgiving every year. I have to. No questions asked. Just the thought of not hosting makes me twitch...One reason is that my hubby loves my cooking and wants the leftovers and also, I like to cook it. If I don't get to host it, I will re cook the entire meal the next day. That is too much work and Turkey tastes different on Black Friday...

Can anyone relate?? Anyone?

Ok, Then I guess it's just me. I've embraced the fact that I am a control freak and I am ok with that!

For me, Memories are moment and moments are often associated with smells and tastes... combine tradition and you create something legendary.... Something profound . Forever embedded in your childrens mind....The kind of moments you want to bottle up in mason jars and save for a rainy day.... Those moments.

Those are the moments I call tradition and those are the moments I work hard in creating for my family of 9!

Those are the moments I want turned into memories... and in time will turn into my legacy. My gift to generations to come....



My menu is consistent but delicious... ( and I will explain more about the origins of my menu on my Periscope today!!)..

They are a mix of recipes past down and new ones we have come across in our 19+ years of marriage. Together, they make the perfect combination for this day of remembrance...

They are simple. Some painstakingly homemade and others are commonly store bought.

And they are abundant!! Nothing less than a 22 pound Turkey graces our table. Every pie choice available and always an extra seat...

Thanksgiving is a day to give Thanks. Thanks for the blessings we have, the Blessings we don't have and the Blessings to come.

As a Mom, Thanksgiving is a day to add on to my legacy. To leave another piece of me in my children.

A time another mason jar gets added to the shelf....

How do you leave your legacy??
