I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Happy Thanksgiving

Turkey, stuffing, cranberry relish, gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, apple pie = Thanksgiving

Family, friends, laughter, cooking, baking, watching football, wonderful aromas, warmth,
playing cards, dishes clinking, pots and pans clanking, stomachs growling with anticipation,
feeling blessed, an abundance of food, not being alone, sneaking some crispy turkey skin as the bird comes out of the oven, all the oohs and aahs when seeing
all of the food on the table = Giving Thanks

May the holiday hold all of the chaos that a room full of hungry people can bring!
