I have to say I’ve always had good memories of holidays. Growing up our family was large and everyone came form near and far to gather for holiday meals. Thanksgiving was always a special time at my grandmothers house. My grandmother and my mom both gave me my love for food.
Growing up holidays were all about the food. We all enjoyed being in the kitchen. My grandmother would teach me her methods and I’d be allowed to help prepare the food. Now that I am grown up and have a family of my own these holidays are even more special for me. I am allowed the opportunity to give these sweet memories to my daughters.
We gather with my husbands family and everyone pitches in. His family has lots of women so we spend a lot of time gabbing about what seems like everything. The kids run around and play and everyone just loves being together. This year I’ve come up with some fun new recipes and I’ve been asked to bring dessert! I do wish my family could be here to see my little family.
I wish my mom and sisters would come to Thanksgiving at our house and get to taste my version of her recipes. I can imagine the joy she’d have seeing my daughters running around like my sister and I used to. Being separated by miles makes those moments we do see one another that much more sweet but I do say I miss my loved ones especially around the holidays. I think sweet gestures to one another around these times make the miles seem less far.
I created this savory bacon stuffing recipe and I can’t wait to share it with friends near and far!
