Seasoned Opinions

Thanksgiving is a time for counting your blessings, spending time with friends and family, and enjoying the pleasures of the table together. It's a great time of the year for foodies and home chefs to stretch their culinary skills and share their talents with their loved ones. Whether that means a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all of the trimmings or a twist on old favorites, it's a time to enjoy food in its most comforting form ... with good company!

This year, we'll be spending the holiday at home and sharing our table with a group of dear friends. I'm thinking there will be a nice blend of traditional foods (there will be turkey) and maybe some fun twists (a wild rice salad, perhaps). One thing I tend to focus on with meals like this is bounty and variety. No one will go away from my table hungry unless they've chosen that! After dinner's done, there will likely be a pause before coffee and hot cider pair up with dessert. Since there are likely to be little ones running about, I'm thinking a selection of cookies might be fun instead of traditional pie. We'll have to wait and see. No matter what, I'm sure I'm going to be grateful for the company of those I love!
