National holidays are always low-hanging fruit when it comes to coming up with things to write about, so I’m not even going to try to be clever or avoid the obvious here. Let’s talk turkey. Or Prime Rib. Or tofu rolled around stuffing.
I’m thinking about food today, and judging by the crowds at the grocery store I probably should’ve avoided this morning, so is everyone else.
Today, let’s take just a few minutes out of our busy cooking and eating schedule to write about Thanksgiving feasts. What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving food? Sitting down to a Norman Rockwellesque tablescape and soaking in the beautiful tradition of it all? Grabbing a plastic plate and filling it sky high with piles of goodies that all blend together in perfect harmony–and then taking it back to the couch to watch the game? Snacking so much on veggies and dips and cheese and crackers that you hardly have room for the meal? Are you the chef? Do you avoid the kitchen altogether?
Food and traditions go hand in hand. The wonder of filling your home and heart with good smells, good food, and good friends is something everyone can relate to, and something everyone deserves this holiday season.
On that note, I’d like to give special thanks to all of you who have supported me and Writing Your Life this year. For all of your support, attending my classes and workshops, sending me emails, working with me on your writing projects, and coming to hear me speak–I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
I wish you all a wonderfully bountiful and warm Thanksgiving this year and every year to come.
