Aaaand…HIKE! (Thanksgiving Traditions)

November 23, 2011

Well, we made it. Thanksgiving break is officially underway, and that means (if you followed Molly’s directions on her latest post) you have been doing lots of relaxing, reading, catching up, relaxing, being creative, relaxing, sleeping, talking with family and friends, relaxing…did I mention lots of relaxing?  One particularly fantastic thing about this break? Yep, you guessed it: THE FOOD.

I know I’m not alone when I say how excited I am for tomorrow. Every year for Thanksgiving my family goes to my grandfather’s farm. All my aunts, uncles and cousins go too, and the entire meal (minus the turkey) is made from the vegetables and fruits grown on our farm.I mean, it’s pretty cool to sit around the table at Thanksgiving and eat the same potatoes you helped plant that spring.

Not only do we always sit down to enjoy a home-grown meal, but we also always have a family football game. We divide into two teams, grab the football, and for an hour or so, my grandfather gets to pretend to be Tom Brady (or so he thinks). It’s something we’ve always done, and I can’t imagine Thanksgiving without our football game.

So what are your Thanksgiving traditions? What are those little things that make Thanksgiving something to be thankful for?

Happy eating, see you next week!
