Our Thanksgiving Day On the fourth Thursday of November, Me and my family celebrate Thanksgiving at my aunt’s house because it is just a day to relax and thank my family for whatever they have done for me without being selfish or greedy. We all help today with the preparations. First we get together, then we try to entertain ourselves in different ways, and then we have our feast. We do a lot of fun things, Me and my cousin go buy muffin mix, and then we make muffins. I love going to my cousin’s house in Thanksgiving.
I attempted to eat some mashed potatoes, hoping that they wouldn’t cause me to puke, but as I felt bile rising in my throat, I wisely thought that it would be better if I didn’t attempt to eat anything else for the rest of the evening. For the rest of the night, I watched my relatives put the glorious food on their plates, and stuff their mouths with dessert with their insatiable appetite, and I repeatedly asked my parents if we could go home so I could wallow in peace. After what seemed like eons, my parents agreed to bring me home. Because I didn’t eat any Thanksgiving food, I sulked in the car all the way home. Little did I know that my day would soon worsen and take a turn for the worse… When we pulled up to our home, I felt the unmistakable nausea return, and I quickly made a run to the nearest toilet.
I had planned to also have green bean casserole but ran out of steam. I missed Jennifer this year, but she will be home soon. She did have cranberry sauce and stovetop stuffing (not my homemade dressing but better than none) that she took with her to India. Her luggage was slightly over the weight limit and she was going to leave the can of cranberry sauce here. However, the ticket agent saw what she was taking out and told her to leave it in.
We grew in our understanding of the trail and of course in our individual abilities. Sometimes we fell silent but others were full of laughter and the innocence of getting to know another. We were also privy to meet Teresa and become part of their family for the course of a few weeks. Teresa’s culinary delights and warm personality always greeted our tired and stinky self’s during our reprieves. Thanksgiving was spent in warmth with a real turkey instead of the instant Idaho potatoes and tuna fish we had already anticipated.
My family is very blessed with everything we possess, during Thanksgiving is time for us to recognize those things and thank God for allowing us to have them. Even though holiday season can be extremely hectic for my family, we always try to be thankful and appreciate the good. This year, Thanksgiving will be a little bit different though. The year of 1621 was significantly important to the Pilgrims. 1621 was the year the Pilgrims celebrated fall harvest.
The art of cooking allows for one to understand serving sizes and what goes in the meal. When cooking a meal together, children get an understanding of the energy, effort and decisions in planning and serving a meal. They are less likely to eat fast food. Where Gibbs writes about “meals being informal, a kind of refueling; often only men sat down,”(213). In the early days, we have arrived at that same place once again.
The First Thanksgiving Everyone knows about Thanksgiving and eating turkey and pie, with a little cranberry sauce. Even though that is not what the pilgrims and Indians really did on the first Thanksgiving. Most elementary schools teach about how the pilgrims and Indians were friends. That they wore nice clothing, and ate at a giant table all together with a cornucopia in front of them. That is not really what happened; they probably did not have a table or pretty clothes.
My little brother is beside me still foggy and stirring awake. Our breakfast was the same as any other: milk and bread. Sometimes, if we were lucky, Ma would come home from town with butter, but that was only for special occasions. We get everything packed and thank our friends, the Camerons, for allowing us to stay with them since we had sold everything we had for this trip. Those were the last people, other than my family, that I saw for the next two
