Even though this year Thanksgiving may look a bit different from years’ past, there is no reason we can’t still be grateful for what we have. We can celebrate old traditions and create new ones to blend them together into a Pandemic Thanksgiving worth remembering!
Although it is recommended we don’t hold large family gatherings there is no reason we can’t all save a seat for the laptop and zoom the dinner conversation. Exposing the skeletons in the closet and admitting to antics from your youth don’t need to happen face-to-face. Those old family stories are good no matter how they occur! And the money you save on gas and grub to travel across the country to be with loved ones can now be donated to a good cause – perhaps consider donating to a local food bank: https://www.feedingamerica.org/hunger-blog/how-donate-thanksgiving-food.
Speaking of food, maybe mix it up a bit. Instead of the old-school Candied Yams with Marshmallows, maybe try something new, like Cinnamon Sweet Potato Muffins: https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/cinnamon-sweet-potato-muffins/. Save the oven for the mashed potatoes and green bean casserole and use your charcoal grill for your turkey: https://www.recipelion.com/Grilling/No-Peek-Turkey-on-the-Weber-Grill-1.
