pumpkin pieI’m heading home to WV for Thanksgiving this year. It’s rare that I go home–we usually spend the holiday with my husband’s family a mere 90 minutes away in SC. And I LOVE spending Thanksgiving with his family.
But somehow the food isn’t exactly what I grew up with. Oh, it’s delicious. Adding homemade macaroni and cheese to Thanksgiving is genius. But it’s not the same. And this year I’m looking forward to revisiting those delicious dishes from childhood.
Here’s what I think of as Thanksgiving dinner:
-Roast turkey
-Bread dressing–some in the turkey, some baked in a pan
-Green beans
-Mashed potatoes
-Yeast rolls
-Cranberry sauce
-Pumpkin pie with real whipped cream
Oh, there might be additions or variations, but that’s the core of Thanksgiving for me! So what’s your quintessential Thanksgiving dish? What can you hardly wait to taste come Thursday?
