"Food, in the end, in our own tradition, is something holy.
It's not about nutrients and calories.
It's about sharing. It's about honesty. It's about identity."
This one is easy.
Food, family, and traditions.
This is one of the meals that we break out the silver and linen.
Shannon used to have the job polishing the silver before our dinner.
It was something she could do to help me, and I always looked forward to her company.
Today I unpacked the silver and polished it taking the time to remember past family meals.
My parents gave me sets of this silverware each year at Christmas. Those were the days when girls received gifts that would be part of their new homes when they married. This is German silver, very much like the mid-century set that my mother owned. Today I appreciated its simplicity as polishing and cleaning it was much easier with its clean lines. It takes me back to dozens and dozens of Thanksgivings shared with family and friends.
I hope your Thanksgiving is one that will join the memories of the very best things in your lives...
