Soul Food Thanksgiving

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.
