    Family Thanksgiving Traditions

    Anyone have special family traditions for the Thanksgiving table? We are quite conventional here; turkey, dressing, mashed 'taters and giblet gravy; baked sweet potatoes. One thing I always look forward to, is the Oven Baked-Bacon Wrapped Green Beans! Sharn Jean makes them a couple times a year, especially at Thanksgiving. It's one thing I really look forward to.

    FWIW, this has come up before, and the recipe is in the GTT Cookbook!

    Three years ago, I made venison chili for Wednesday the night before. I've made it since and have received many text messages making sure that I'd be making it again this year. So, accidentally a new tradition has been born.

    Cool! That's the way traditions are born! Chili is a Halloween tradition here. We were pretty rural when we moved in this house; I used to stay home and give out the treats and Sharon would take the kids around in the car to let them do their trick-or-treat thingy. Dinner was a bit iffy; and we finally settled on me making chili (easy) so I could handle the little goblins too. It's been a tradition since 1972. No trick-or-treaters here any more, but we still have chili at our daughter's place on Halloween.

    I make Cinnamon rolls every Thanksgiving morning. No trick or Treaters here either. It's sad. Short story day after Halloween morning I asked my grandson if he brought me any of his candy and he looked at me with a deadpan face and said "If I wanted candy I should have gone Trick or Treating" so funny7

    All our family is gone in this life and we never had any children so just the two of us have a small turkey with all the fixings, a bottle of wine and then go for a walk out back (unless we get snow!) Our days are basically just the two of us and our cats now so we're used to it. The nephews and nieces have their own lives and some are states away. We are good with all this and we do enjoy each others company.
    We do miss the days with family and actually had a hard time choosing which parents we would eat with first!. I will never forget the day back some 30 years ago we had Pizza and prime rib for Thanksgiving and my father was so agitated that he never stopped reminding us about it! So much for a new tradition! He was a strict traditional holiday food guy! Oh well, we are looking forward to our dinner next week as you all are and the party the next day in the rock N roll barn is expected to be a full house.. One of our friends that married an English girl and now lives in England is coming home for the holidays, we are excited about seeing him again.. In our opinion, our friends are our family and we love them like they're blood..
    Everyone have a great Thanksgiving and I hope I didn't go of topic to far! Jeff

    I'll have to get Mrs. Taylor to do the oven baked bacon wrapped green beans that sounds pretty darned good! Thanks for the tip! Jeff

    If my posts don't wander off a little or a lot, I think my original post was to esoteric to be of interest.

    Our T-Day of late starts with mimosas just after breakfast and with the Turkey in the oven. Alice's Restaurant is played at high noon off of the iPod/Klipsch docking station.

    Turkey and the trimmings about 4:00PM, NFL on the television through the day. The festivities will migrate to the fire pit just before dark.

    We add one or two new things each year.

    Enjoy your Thanksgiving, all, and stay safe...
