Americans thrive on being rebels, but if there’s one day we put aside rebellion in favor of tradition… it’s Thanksgiving! Here are a few quick menu tips if you’re the host this year.
- Nail the basics. Your guests will likely expect turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, some vegetables and pie for dessert. Deviation is sin.
- Experiment with new sides. After you nail the basics, add different colors and textures with new side plates.
- Give thought to appetizers and drinks. It will impress your guests and allow more creativity than the main meal.
In a culture of rebels, the tradition of Thanksgiving unites us all.
