A Thanksgiving Feast for Everyone
Like everyone else, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. A day before everyone would be celebrating the national feast day! As the beautiful colors of fall paint the trees, the air feels cooler and excited, and the sweet smell of fresh pies fills the house, Thanksgiving calls us to come together with its promise of warm feelings, being around loved ones, and the deliciously yummy food. It's a time to stop and think about the good things in our lives and gather with family and friends to celebrate the blessings of the season.
A Party of Taste Buds
Imagine the Thanksgiving table, a big picture made up of amazing foods. The main dish, a golden-brown turkey, its juicy meat shining under a layer of crispy skin, tempts us with its irresistible smell. Alongside, a mix of side dishes creates a party for our taste buds - creamy mashed potatoes, their smooth texture contrasting with the sweet-sour cranberry sauce, bright green beans nestled in a pool of tasty gravy, a variety of roasted vegetables, their sweetness turned into caramel by the oven’s heat.
A Gathering for the Soul
The true meaning of Thanksgiving is not just about the food itself, but about the people we share it with. As family and friends come together, their laughter and talking fill the air as everyone competes to be heard. Stories are told, old and new, weaving a story of shared memories and creating new ones to add to the pile. The warmth of everyone’s presence, the depth of the love, and the joy of the company feed our souls, reminding us of the unbreakable bonds that connect us, no matter how dysfunctional at times.
Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for the abundance in our lives, to cherish the company of loved ones, and to nourish our bodies with the abundance of yummy foods. Let us embrace the spirit of the season, enjoy the party of flavors, and make more meaningful memories that will last long after the last bite is gone. HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO MY WA FAMILY!!!
