Since the very first Thanksgiving in 1621, Thanksgiving has been a day to gather with friends and family while we give thanks for the previous year's "harvest." It's also a day to enjoy good conversation, food, and drink.
In some households, Thanksgiving recipes have been handed down from generation to generation, setting the stage for a traditional meal to be both celebrated and enjoyed. In others, every holiday is a culinary adventure, with the cooks experimenting with new dinner ideas and creating a unique experience from year to year. Although the menu changes from family to family, one thing stays the same: Thanksgiving is a time to take a step back and be grateful. Of course, activities after the feast have become just as important as the feast itself.
