I know, I know, it’s well past Thanksgiving, but some of us don’t want the day to end. I had planned on getting this post up for Thanksgiving, but medical school got in the way. Like my old college days, we had several exams crammed into the three day week leading up to Thanksgiving.

Everyone has the same dishes that they bring and though sometimes I think about trying a new item for the menu, it’s always nice to have the old favorites. I’m so thankful to have such loving family and friends and a wonderful tradition each year.
