Holiday Table * Thanksgiving Appetizers

Today at My Holiday Table – It’s  Appetizers  and Drinks before the big meal . 

Thanksgiving is a big day for my family . We gather at a family members house and spend the day together enjoying family ,food and football. The host/hostess supplies the meat and we all bring the other dishes.  The hostess call and tell us appetizer ,side dish, desert or anything goes.  With the numbers in 50-70  people it’s a lot of food and fun.

Traditionally the Women are in the kitchen are getting the food ready to serve and set out.   It’s time to catch up and gossip and Eat. And the Men are finishing the Meat  ( frying  Turkey ) -BBQ meat  or ham for the table talking about hunting and football. Depending on the weather or house they are outside having fun. We usually don’t eat till about 2 o clock so we have lots of time to have fun.    Lisa
