FILL YOUR KITCHEN WITH THE FOOD OF THANKSGIVING
The kitchen is often the heart of the home and filling it with festive and delicious food is just one way of showing your gratitude for what you have and those around you. Prepare a special meal and invite your close loved ones, even if you can’t invite extended and friends due to the pandemic.
There are all types of delicious food you can cook up to express your gratitude, such as pecan and pumpkin pies, or banana bread with delicious gravy and stuffing for the turkey. You can even cook up an extra batch of food to give out to those less fortunate in the true spirit of the holiday.
GATHER THE FAMILY FOR OLD FASHIONED FUN
Another great room to utilize for your Thanksgiving family get together is the family room. Although this room is on the decline as a true bringer together of families because of technology and social media, you can revitalize its true purpose by inviting your family in and playing a game together.
There are hundreds of games to choose from which could bring your family together, or you could choose to turn on the tube and watch some of the exciting football offerings from the NFL. Whatever you choose to do, the family room is a great place to gather for old fashioned fun and camaraderie.
SINK INTO YOUR FEAST
The kitchen is all well and good for making your dinner, but there’s no place like the dining room for sinking your teeth into what you’ve made. To really get into the holiday spirit, you can decorate the room with ornaments of fall and Thanksgiving, such as turkey-based decorations.
Let the magic of the holidays wash over your family as you sit down for a traditional, together family meal. Have a conversation and become involved in each other’s lives as you sit down to your freshly prepared and delicious Thanksgiving meal.
