The clock is ticking down to the home-cooks ultimate cook off here in the good old USA.
Thanksgiving!! Believe it or not this is the time of year that I take off work from tomorrow through the end of the month, or, normally the Monday after the holiday.
My mother is the matriarch of our family, she is the oldest living relative of her entire family, on both her mother and fathers side, so almost all roads lead to my house for the holidays.
Needless to say Thanksgiving is a really big deal here at the Graham Household, it includes 2 turkeys and a 15 pound ham for the meats and enough assorted side dishes to feed an army. I hope to share with you over the coming days all of the many traditions
we have here at home for what we prepare, and I would really like to hear from all of you about what you do special for this day. I don’t think anyone is ever too old to learn a new dish, idea or start a new tradition, and who knows we may be an inspiration
to some young cook just starting out making their own traditions.
I think the first thing to learn about preparing an important meal for the holidays is not to sweat the small stuff.
Do not let it get to you. Easier said than done I know, but if you can slow down and take the time to enjoy the preparation as well as the family and friends around this time of the year the menu will be even better than you planned.
I plan to share with you some of my favorites, I hope you will too, as I take you and the Graham Family back through Memories from an Ozark Kitchen…
