Photo of Thanksgiving dinner at my house.
I love everything about Thanksgiving. The food. The family. And the chance to get creative.
My relatives can feel free to claim all the other other holidays, but Thanksgiving is mine. I cater exactly the way I want to because, hey, I’m finicky. For me, cooking is yet another way for me to express myself creatively. I spent a year taking weekend cooking classes in order to learn the basics. Then I learned how to get schmancy!
Yes, I made this turkey myself!
It took me yet another year, however, to learn that unfortunately not everyone loves what I cook. Especially my kids. No matter how long I spend brining the turkey, sautéing the potatoes, or making that green bean casserole (you know the one I’m talking about), the only item ever eaten on my boys’ plates is the store-bought, previously frozen, macaroni & cheese dish they force me to serve. Sigh…
Maybe I should stick with writing. Then again, my kids would never read anything I write, either. Since my novels can be as steamy as the dishes I cook up, maybe that’s a good thing.
At least my kids will eat my desserts!
Yes, I made these, too!
What do you do to let your creativity loose this time of year?
