Norman Rockwell depicted the all American family Thanksgiving better than words ever could.
I am looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner with the family. My mother is cooking the dinner! I am excited SO EXCITED for this. Last year my mom decided she was taking the day off, and we went to a restaurant- It just wasn't the Thanksgiving I wanted! Our family food tradition is something called cranberry ice, this is a sorbet served as an appetizer and it is the best stuff! It is like having a little dessert before dinner. There really isn't a story behind the cranberry ice my Great Grandmother started this tradition after finding the recipe in a women's magazine in the 50's. It has been a staple on the table ever since. I can't wait! I am thankful for so much, but one of the little things is cranberry ice!
