Caring comes in many forms.
For my sister, it came in a small package sent care of our parents.
Everything you need to have a home style Thanksgiving.
(Hey, you are hard to get a hold of sis...so I am telling you here and now THANKS!)
It doesn't matter if you grew over 50 lbs of squash and pumpkins this year.
Thanksgiving means two things must happen in our family.
The pie MUST be made with One-Pie (the label isn't retro...it's the way it's always been.)
The stuffing MUST be made with Bell's Seasoning (it's nearly impossible to find here, so when a family member comes from Maine, they must bring Bell's. Biscuits must be made with Bakewell Cream. (and biscuits are not served at Thanksgiving dinner, but sometimes this is another thoughtful item sent as it is impossible to even get through Amazon.) I know there is this wacky thing called the internet, but I am not yet that desperate. Bonus...it is a gift thought out by the traveler, and nothing is better than a well thought out gift, one that is truly appreciated.)
The turkey has been ordered, the proper bread found (again, a tradition of buying this weird bread...but my mom's stuffing is something not to be messed with, it is a work of art.)
Next week, I'll post the menu...it's full of our family's odd (or not so odd) Thanksgiving traditions.
Traditions run deep.
And for that, I'm thankful.
