Our Thanksgiving Traditions And Favorite Foods
Scary thought: Thanksgiving is 3 weeks from today! It’s quickly sneaking up on us.
Soon, our family will be descending upon our homes and invading for the holidays. Julie’s mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and the sister-in-law’s new husband will be in town to celebrate Thanksgiving at Julie’s house.
The very first Thanksgiving Tony hosted in Dallas, he didn’t realize that the frozen turkey needed to thaw in the fridge for 4 days before cooking it.Thankfully, Boston Market was still open. Now Tony loves to host every holiday.
Julie’s favorite Thanksgiving dish is the stuffing her husband makes. It’s sausage and mushroom stuffing. He doesn’t really have a recipe, but he throws all sorts of awesome herbs into it that makes it awesome.
Tony has two Thanksgiving dishes that he loves, and they were both made by Grandma Annabel. One was a ribbon jello. It was layered jello, some of the layers had cream cheese, but it ended up looking like a rainbow striped jello.Tony’s other favorite Thanksgiving dish was Grandma Annabel’s homemade cranberry-orange relish. She would pull out the hand crank the night before and make the dish by hand.
Julie shocked us all by declaring she prefers the canned cranberry sauce.
Thinking about Thanksgiving, we can’t help but think about the families that will go without. 1 in 4 children here in North Texas will go to bed hungry tonight. That is almost 300,000 kids. We’ve partnered up with LaDainian Tomlinson’s Giving Thanks & TangoTab to help feed some families this Thanksgiving. In previous years, they have fed 2,100 families, but this year, we want to feed 5,000 families. We know we can do that with your help!
