52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History: Thanksgiving
Growing up, our Thanksgiving table featured most of the same things that mine now does. Turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans. The changes are that I don’t make the ambrosia salad like my aunt did. My mother-in-law makes it for our get togethers and so I don’t even try making it. I don’t like the cranberry sauce shaped like the can, so I make my own, but other than that, right down to the olives on the fingertips, I like to mirror the Thanksgivings of my childhood.
