Growing Up With
By John Havel
It's Thanksgiving, and everyone has their own memories and
traditions. Some people look for new recipes to explore - others
make pretty much the same thing every year. My experience while
growing up was anything but varied. We had the exact same food for
years. But it always tasted great and, as you'll see, the recipes
are simple to prepare.
Being in the restaurant business for half my life, I got used to the
task of organizing large amounts of food. But Thanksgiving catches
some people off guard - especially when too much time is devoted to
one or two dishes. You're better off keeping it simple and having
everything perfectly prepared.
Most of these recipes are traditional to many families. I'd say cole
slaw is one that not many people serve on Thanksgiving. What's even
more different is having your cole slaw with turkey gravy over it.
Mom always said it was a German thing. There were those that
"gravied" and those that didn't - I never did. Dad always made the
cole slaw, but the rest was left up to Mom. She'd have her list out
first thing in the morning with all the food and times they needed
to be started.
