Soul Food Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving has always been about the only treasure we had which was family. Before the middle class lifestyle and the suburban house all we had was a simple things to celebrate 1. The opportunity to take food often scraps like greens and yams and make them into something amazing. 2 We also had each other. I miss the days where everyone could come over to someones house just to get a plate. I might be a little old school, but Thanksgiving was the great equalizer. It was a day when money, education, or social status did not matter. It was a day of remembering the good old days and if you could play cards and dominoes. That is the magic of a soul food Thanksgiving. It was hours of love manifested in spices and herbs served on a plate. Everyone had a seat at the table because we were family.
