The last Thanksgiving Tradition I remember was when I was little and within geographical reach of a bunch of relatives. Every year we all gathered together and while the “grown-ups” visited, us kid cousins made mischief, um, had fun. <:}>
Now that we are all grown and everyone (including my immediate family members) is wide-spread, I suppose the only Thanksgiving Tradition I have is the meal – Turkey with homemade Corn-Bread Dressing and all the trimmings – Gravy, Cranberry Sauce, Salads, pies… And leftovers for days! YUM!
But as you probably know, after all my over-eating I need to work my AHEM off to burn all those unnecessary calories. . .
Used to be that homemade dressing was among my favorite aspects of the typical Thanksgiving meal. But since I had to give up gluten four year ago, I don’t believe I’ve eaten any. I miss it.
Oh, wait… my wife did find some mix that is gluten-FREE and made it recently. Not too bad, but a pale imitation of the real stuff.
Homemade cornbread dressing is the BEST! Why’d you go Gluten-Free? .
had to. Beginning in mid 2010 my stomach was giving me fits on 4-5 days each week. Since I dropped gluten, it’s something like 1 day out of 10 that I have problems.

Sounds like traditions to me, Janette, new or old. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!
You are absolutely right, T! I guess I’ve made a lot of “new” traditions while I’ve been single. 🙂 My Thanksgiving was better this year than it’s been in a long time. I’ve made a “family” of new friends who I spent it with. Hope you had a great one, too!
