Thanksgiving is just around the corner. For some gracious hosts and hostesses that means one thing … a lot of work! You know what we mean. Hours upon hours of work peeling potatoes, stuffing the turkey, stirring big pots of green beans and corn, baking, cutting and prepping for family and friends to feast at your table. Then, after countless hours of cooking, within 30 minutes it is all devoured.
I remember being a little girl observing my mother and aunts slave in the kitchen before our family Thanksgiving dinner. Afterwards the fun didn’t end either! Once the last guest left our table, there were dishes to wash, pots to scrub and leftovers to contain. When I got old enough, I got the pleasure of chipping in on the workload … not so voluntarily. I remember crashing on my bed afterwards for an hour-long nap when it was all said and done – completely drained.
Your Thanksgivings may resemble this scenario. While it always seems worth the chaos and labor due to the time spent with loved ones, I can’t help but wonder, what if it didn’t always have to be this way? What if one year, we all took a break and let someone else do the cooking, serving and cleaning. What if instead of spending hours prepping food, we used that time to sip coffee on the front porch with grandpa or watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade curled up with all our nieces and nephews?

Imagine just loading up your family and friends and heading out for your big feast! While it may seem a tad bit unorthodox, Thanksgiving isn’t so much about the food your eating or the venue, as it is the people you’re eating it with. Right?
