This year Thanksgiving looks VERY different from our normal Thanksgiving. Usually we switch off years between our parents’ houses and have a huge family get together with aunts, uncles and lots and lots of cousins. After seeing the numbers of positive cases rising in our state, we made the tough decision to forego our normal plans with family to play it safe at home with just us and the cats.
We wanted to maintain some of our favorite traditions and dishes for Thanksgiving. Last night we baked my dad’s pecan pie along with a pumpkin pie and then today we made all our favorites including Wyatt’s mom’s honey cinnamon carrots and my mom’s cornbread stuffing/dressing. Our meal was a success and we are thoroughly stuffed. We may have missed all of our loved ones, we made our own memories.
