The traditional Thanksgiving, let’s put A New Twist On Thanksgiving. This is A New Twist On Thanksgiving. I love the traditional Thanksgiving, I really do. I have friends who do things differently for Thanksgiving, it’s not the food, it’s the people you spend time with and a day to reflect on what all you are thankful for!

Traditional Thanksgiving

  • Turkey
  • Ham
  • Green Beans
  • Mac N Chees
  • Dressing & Gravy
  • cranberry sauce
  • Deviled Eggs

This list could go on and on because there are no right or wrong answers when it comes to putting A New Twist On Thanksgiving, Why not try something new

New Twist On Thanksgiving

  • Cook out-Burgers and Hot Dogs
  • A Mexican Feast
  • A Chinese spread
  • Do a cater from Waffle House
  • Pig Pickin’
  • An All Fair Food Thanksgiving

Again, no right or wrong answers here, just do something different that your family will enjoy

To me one of the best Thanksgiving meals I ever had was spending Thanksgiving with some Italian friends.  I will say this, I could eat Italian Food daily.  If I were given a last meal, it would be Italian.  I’m talking more than just sauce over noodles

My Favorite Italian Foods

  • Gnocchi
  • Chicken Parm
  • Cacio e Pepe/Cheese and Peppers
  • Italian Wedding Soup
  • Creamy Chicken Marsla
  • Pasta e Fagiloi-Italian Chili
  • Any Bolognese Sauce Based Pasta
  • Chicken Piccata
  • Home Made Meatballs
  • Lasagna

All that to show you what an Italian Thanksgiving would and could look like.  An Italian Thanksgiving can change home to home based on traditions and different things your family likes and doesn’t like!  But get ready, with an Italian Thanksgiving, have no where to go, because its an all day event and you will be eating and eating and eating and eating.  You eat!
