Thanksgiving is here! Thanksgiving is here! I LOVE this time of year! The holiday season is filled with family, love, friends, and of course, food. For my family, we have always come together around food. Cooking with my parents, grandparents, in-laws, and my hubby are a few of my favorite things. The feeling of cooking up a whole meal that your family can gather around is unbeatable.
Buuuuut, we do things with a little twist. Most people are watching their wastelines and minimizing their portions during the holiday season, but not in our household. We have a little friend and her name is Taylor and she is a scale. Before anyone starts eating, you gotta hop on Taylor to see what you weigh. Whoever gains the most weight at the end of the day gets bragging rights for the rest of the year (we can thank my wonderful cousin for coming up with this little tradition). And by golly, I’ve actually pulled it off and won it one year! No one goes to the bathroom, everyone eats and drinks as much as they can.
Whatever your family traditions are, it’s such a magical time of year to be reminded of all the things we have to be thankful for.
So what are you going to put on your Thanksgiving Table this year? Why not try something new while hanging onto the traditional Thanksgiving goodies?
