Perhaps the greatest food holiday of the year, Thanksgiving is the time we all give ourselves permission to over do it. Every year, as the football game sounds in the background, and my belt is loosened a notch or two, a wonderful feeling of comfort, warmth, and satisfaction washes over me, as much of what I just enjoyed is just like it was 30 yrs ago, when I sat at my parent's dinning room table. And while those comfort foods are always present, I also usually tweak at least a couple of the dishes to keep them new, fresh and modern. Here's several favorites that I've brought to my families' Thanksgiving table, that I'm sure you'll enjoy!
