Family Traditions for Thanksgiving

When I was a little girl, we went to my Aunt Lois’s house almost every Thanksgiving. My grandmother, my mother’s mother, lived with Aunt Lois so it was a natural trip to visit my grandmother and see my mother’s sister.  As my Uncle Louis wasn’t fond of turkey, we always had a  ham for dinner.  It was traditional to have two main dishes at Aunt Lois’s home.  

In the ’50s and ’60s,  it was traditional for the first Christmas TV shows to start after Thanksgiving dinner.  My Dad would always make sure we were home in time to watch The first Christmas variety show and the first Christmas cartoons.  My favorite was Charlie Brown’s Christmas. 

When I was a child, our family started the day after Thanksgiving the mad rush to get all the Christmas decorations sorted and decorated around the house.  After years of work we now have more vacation and almost always take Monday off also so that we can get as much done as possible this first weekend.

Tips for a Successful Tasty Side Dish

The trick to having a successful and fun Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for the host is to start side dishes like this the day before.  This easy corn casserole recipe is a great recipe for make-ahead preparation. 

Purchase all your ingredients the weekend before as they have a long shelf life.  Thaw the frozen corn the night before or when you mix the recipe it freezes up (believe me I have done this).  Mix all the ingredients together in your favorite casserole dish, cover with foil or plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.  

An hour and a half before you want to eat take off the cover and put in the oven at 350° for 90 minutes.  Check the top to ensure the middle is cooked depending on your oven and how many other cold dishes are in the oven simultaneously.  If this dish is alone in the oven take 60 minutes.
