‘Tis the season to eat a lot of turkey! The weather is getting colder, and the winter holidays are slowly approaching, but first up is the most delicious holiday, Thanksgiving. It’s a time to reunite with family and friends to gather around the table and enjoy a homecooked meal together.
Imagine this… It’s a chilly Thursday morning, and you wake up to do one of three things. You are either staying in your jammies, brewing a cup of coffee, and plopping on the couch to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Or maybe you’re throwing on your sneakers to run a Turkey Day marathon, or maybe you’re the GOAT of the day, the Thanksgiving chef. But whichever person you are on the morning of Thanksgiving, you all gather around the table for an incredible meal. There is one exception: if you are not the Thanksgiving Day chef, you should be the Thanksgiving Day dishwasher. It’s polite to whoever cooked the meal you’ve been looking forward to all year.
Of course, turkey is the star of the holiday, and taking on the responsibility of cooking the bird is a big deal. But, we all know the sides are the best part of the Thanksgiving dish. Everyone has their favorite side that they look forward to most, but have you ever wondered what your favorite side dish says about you? If so, or even if not, I have you covered! Share this with your guests at this year’s holiday for a fun conversation at the dinner table.
So, at this year’s Thanksgiving holiday dinner, you can say, “Grandma, you are such a mashed potato!” Please don’t call your beloved grandmother a potato without her first reading this article. Happy holidays!
