We're going to my grandma's house today.
For my international friends, Thanksgiving is a holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November; it is the day we remember the Separatist pilgrims who came from England to America for religious freedom. This particular group of colonists was treated as friends by the Native Americans, so they shared food and farming knowledge. We call the celebration Thanksgiving because the pilgrims were thankful for the Native Americans' help. Today the holiday is celebrated with family members, cooking lots of food, and football on TV (as you can tell this is Brochacho's kind of holiday). Click here to learn more.
Every year we usually have the same things (I'm not complaining, it's all good); ham, turkey, cranberry sauce (that's not my favorite), etc. Some things that are my favorites are:
- Deviled Eggs
- Mashed potatoes
- Sweet Potato Casserole (with marshmallows)
- Cheese Curls (I'm sorry, they're too good, and we only get them when we go over there)
