This week we called my food column for Alberta at Noon on CBC Radio One, “the sides show”. Turkey dinner is on the short list for my last meal – I love it that much.
I love the whole package: the bird, the mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing and I love all the side dishes. I divide sides into the ones you must have and two, the ones you can play around with.
My family has certain things they HAVE TO HAVE. Fair enough; I make them. But, as someone whose creative outlet is cooking, I also need my play time and a chance to try new things with each holiday meal.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. May each and every day give you a chance to savour your food and savour your life.
