This year’s Thanksgiving is different, but then this year has been different; I know you do not need to be reminded of that—none of us do. We all have to deal with it one way or the other.I reread last year’s post about four ways to use up all those leftovers.
At this moment leftovers feel so optimistic. But it struck me that maybe it was actually a good idea. Cook a turkey larger than you need and make leftovers. It’s a great way to have food ready to eat in your freezer. No turkey this year, no problem. A large roast chicken and a simple stuffing will give you everything you need to make those leftovers.
Think about this Thanksgiving as feeding your freezer with great food for when you don’t feel like cooking.

I decided to look up what the Britannica site had to say about Thanksgiving. I knew it was about being thankful but I was surprised to read that it specifically said it was about celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past year.
Wow, specifically about the past year. Let me leave with that thought. What are our blessings of this past year? It is a good question—one worth pondering.
Thanksgiving Day, annual national holiday in the United States and Canada celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past year.
I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
No matter what this year has been like for you I hope that Thanksgiving is a wonderful day.
