For those who celebrate this holiday, Thanksgiving is a time for reflection. A time to give thanks to whatever deity you believe in for what you have in life. I love family holidays like this because with all of our busy lives, it’s hard to get my family all together to do anything. So we make sure to go all out on Thanksgiving Day. As a greedy person at heart, my second favorite part of this holiday is the FOOD! Eff what you heard, my mom’s Thanksgiving dinner game is >>>>>. This is not up for debate! I can’t wait to dig in [||] tomorrow, so in preparation for the festive event, I will list my fave 5 Thanksgiving dishes!
If you don’t eat pork, you lost. Seriously, I don’t even eat ham like that. But when I do, it’s only the Ham my mom makes. She makes swine taste like Heaven, I swear. I don’t eat much of it, but just enough to get my yearly fix.
I’ve never been much of a turkey eater. Well, let me not lie. I love turkey sandwiches, but roasted turkey isn’t always my cup of tea. It’s traditional and it’s the poster child for Thanksgiving. So why not?
The perfect way to end a meal. My mom switches it up every Thanksgiving. Sometimes, she’ll make a pie or go the “It’s not delivery, it’s DiGiorno” route and buy something out the box that taste home made! She always knows what to get and never disappoints. So I don’t mention it. Hey, we have a good deal here so I’m not going to mess it up!! lol
Yes, you read that right. In our household, we do things unconventionally. We love cooking lasagna on this day because it’s a special occasion. I don’t mind because Lasagna with meat is one of my favorite dishes — if not my #1. I just wiped a 5th of drool off my keyboard from thinking about tomorrow!
1) The Stuffing
Ever since I was a youth (pronounced yout), stuffing has been my everything. Every year, it never ever fails me. I can’t pinpoint why I like it so much. It’s light, fluffy, and seasoned to perfection,. I know it’s nothing more than glorified bread crumbs and probably looked at as one of the lesser sides fixed for Turkey Day. But if you make an excellent stuffing, you have a clear path to my heart. I could eat plates of stuffing for days on end. Easy!
I’m thankful for my fam and friends, and love the family aspect of Thanksgiving. The food is just an added plus. But I be hongry, you know?! Let’s justify #grubbinseason. Share some of your favorite fixings today!
P.S. Miss me with any “real meanings of Thanksgiving” debates. We talking bout food, bro! Food!
Peace and Enjoy the Holiday,
