Most of us tend to eat with the same people (our families) and eat the same foods every year, right? At least that's how it is with me and my family.
Obviously, places and times change throughout the years, but my family has a long-standing tradition of having Thanksgiving dinner together--even if we have to travel hundreds of miles to do so.
This year is no exception either. I have just spent all of yesterday traveling with my husband and children across several states to be with our families this week. And we will celebrate by eating all of our favorite *Thanksgivingish* foods on Thursday.
I do like to try out a new recipe or two every year though. Last year I made several new ones. This year I am repeating a couple of those since they are now new favorites and I am trying out one brand new recipe: Deep Dish Pumpkin Meringue Pie!
And when we get together with Vince's side of the family on Friday we're skipping the traditional foods all together (since we'll have all eaten so much of them already). This year we're having bbq brisket with all the fixings! That will be yummy and it'll be nice to try different recipes for that.
So I guess I'm a little of both this year: traditional and non-traditional. It's fun to mix things up once in a while, dontcha think?
How about you? I'd love to hear about your plans--leave me a comment and tell me all about them!
