Instead of over the river and through the woods, I'll be traveling via freeway to get to my Thanksgiving destination.

Last Thanksgiving, we tried the restaurant idea and I have to say, we were all disappointed.  We rarely can find meals as fine as we can prepare them and they're usually 10X the price too.  Most of my family are foodies and love to have me surprise them with something unique each holiday.  I'll be cooking for Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas (Boxing Day this year) when our families can get together but not yet sure of the menu!

Pies and rolls done night before.

Six mile run starts T-day off right.

Turkey, taters, edemame, stuffing, cranberry chuteny, wine and music prime the pump for early dinner with Mom. Then its off to Beacon Street where 'thanksgiving' turns from gratefulness to action. This is one of those times where the act of ones hand has a profound effect that words can not reach. Each person touched, touches me in return.

  Cooking holidays!  Sounds like fun!

   Our "family tradition":

     Some years ago, my grandmother literally wore herself out in the kitchen, while the family relaxed in the living room.  My wife and I told Grandma, "next year we are going to a restaurant". 

     That started a long-standing tradition... some years we travel to the other side of Florida and eat at a swank hotel, other years we stay here in Tallahassee and enjoy an early lunch at A La Provence or Wakulla Springs Lodge.   Later in the afternoon we go to our cousins' house (they live on acreage) and eat some more.

   Bon Appétit!
