Ahh…Thanksgiving! Of course I’m going to love Thanksgiving—I’m all about giving thanks for my wonderful family and all my blessings. And, of course, there is the food part of the holiday, which also makes it fun!
Yes, it all comes together to make for a wonderful time—nice, cool (but not cold) weather, enough tourists to keep things hopping, but not too many crowds.
And boy, do we heap on the food! In the Taylor family, we’re not usually filling up on the turkey, either—it’s all about the fixings. It’s mashed potatoes, lima beans, corn pudding, dressing, and pecan pie!
But…my family celebrates Thanksgiving the weekend after the big day. That’s because Thanksgiving is always a real busy day at Aunt Pat’s Barbeque restaurant.
You might not think of a barbeque restaurant as a good place to go on Thanksgiving, but good food is always popular, no matter what day it is. And some folks just aren’t up to cooking a full Thanksgiving meal.
So my question for my American friends, let me ask you—have you ever celebrated Thanksgiving in an alternate way? At an unusual place? Or eating foods other than turkey?
