It’s here. The day of the big feast. I’m up early and hoping I can manage to get everything done that needs done before the family begins to arrive. I’m hosting our Thanksgiving dinner for the first time in four or five years. Since the last time, I’ve downsized my home, so we’ll be a close bunch. But we love one another so it’ll be fine.
One of the best things for me about Thanksgiving is the tradition of the meal. The holiday to me means turkey and dressing, green bean casserole, a favorite-style Jello salad, rolls, mashed potatoes and gravy, deviled eggs, a relish tray, hot spiced cider, coffee with flavored creamers, and pies. Mmm, mmm, mmm.
I hope you’re able to be with those you love on this Thanksgiving day and that you’ll get to eat your favorite foods. And if you eat too much (and even if you don’t), make sure you get back to your exercise routine come Friday!
