THANKSGIVING PLANS & YOUR LOCAL JACKSON MARKET UPDATE
Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Man did October fly by. So what are your plans for Thanksgiving? Do you cook, do you go out to eat, do you go to a movie, or what about a football game? Everyone has different routines, some work.
Thank you to all of you that are sacrificing your time to go in to work for those that don’t stay home. Some people go shopping, I used to do that and again thank you to all of you that work, lol. Now, I enjoy shopping in my pajamas on my computer from the comfort of my home. Some go to friends or families to sit down and eat the traditional dinner and others go out to dinner. I guess we have done it all, we have had the traditional family/friends dinner, we went out to dinner, we have shopped, but we now have a new tradition.
We load up the family and friends drive to Detroit and cheer on our Detroit Lions for the Thanksgiving Game. “Restore the Roar,” well at least that is what we hope for every Lions game. It’s all about tradition and what you like to do. Yes, I’m lucky because my family loves football so that is an easy choice and we are lucky because our friends and some of our extended family join us. We have friends that come home for the holidays, some as far as Florida and Alaska. It’s such a joy to be able to visit and create memories with some of those that we don’t get to see very often. Each person chooses to celebrate their holidays differently and for us this is what we love to do together.
I appreciate the hard work and time it takes to prepare and cook a Thanksgiving turkey. So for some of you that might not want to take the time and wake up at 6 am to get started here is something that is easy and faster for those of you that still love the traditional Turkey dinner. This is a great recipe that I have used many times and is much easier and a lot less preparation https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/slow-cooker-turkey-breast/ check out this link and tweak it to make it your own or follow the recipe and enjoy.
Enjoy your day, tradition and those that you chose to spend your holiday with. Happy Turkey Day!!!
