Salt and Stone: Recipes to Bring as a Thanksgiving Guest

An ongoing controversy over whether to decorate for the holidays before Thanksgiving has erupted at The Salt and Stone House. Some are in favour, while others are fiercely opposed.

The talk is continual, erupting at inconvenient times such as while we're driving to practise, preparing dinner or just turning off the lights for the night. Unfortunately, no one appears to be any closer to getting their way.

I've avoided discussing the benefits of performing a Thanksgiving morning turkey trot until things calm down a bit. 

Now that I think about it, I'd say we're almost set for Thanksgiving dinner, when 22 of us gather around the table to share a meal and some opinions. Perhaps you can relate.

In all seriousness, Thanksgiving is my most favourite holiday. It's all about food, family, and friendship. 

I enjoy the hustle and bustle of food preparation (despite the fact that it can be hectic and messy), and I enjoy having a house full of people.

But at the end of it, I get to sit back and look around at some of my most cherished friends smiling and talking, filling their tummies with excellent food, and whatever worry or disputes that had led up to that point fade away, at least temporarily.

Over the years, I've posted numerous Thanksgiving recipes. My tried-and-true method for a perfect turkey can be found in the archives of the Yakima Herald-Republic website or on my personal food blog, thesaltandstone.Regular-season overtime was unaffected.
