Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. Some people love the music and gift-giving of Christmas. Others love the decorating and costumes of Halloween. My love lies squarely in between them both: a holiday known for its abundance and variety of food. A holiday that has its own pants. Regardless of whether I expect to cook for four or 14, I go all out when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner prep. The upside? My guests get to experience all the fixings of a traditional Southern Thanksgiving meal. The downside? While it turns out most people eat Thanksgiving dinner at around 3 p.m., my poor guests are lucky if the collard greens are ready by then.
