Thanksgiving is coming soon; I have a lot of memories of Thanksgiving from when I was a kid. A lot of them involve my mom, preparing for days in advance; the food that went out on the table that day. The pies, dressing and cranberry sauce, she would make. Getting up way before the rest of the house to start the turkey and dressing, the potatoes and gravy, it was wonderful waking up to the smells, Yum… But one of my favorite things I remember was how she would set the table, the solid white dishes, crystal glassware and crisp napkins and tablecloth, it was beautiful.
In more recent years I remember being intimidated by the process remembering how much time she put into it all. Now Thanksgiving dinner is one of my favorite meals to prepare.
What are some of your favorite memories from Thanksgiving’s past?
