Celebrating Modern Jewish Living Through Food, Tradition, and Family

Traditional Thanksgiving Menu

Is there anyone who doesn’t live for a traditional Thanksgiving meal? What’s not to love?

Between the juicy turkey, savory stuffing, thick luscious gravy, and the tart cranberry sauce, it’s enough to make your mouth water before you even get started on the desserts! In fact, the foods that we eat on Thanksgiving are so truly delicious (and as cooks and folks who love to entertain and feed, feed, feed everyone), it’s easy to get so caught up in the merriment of entertaining and planning the perfect meal, that we can sometimes forget that  Thanksgiving is about gratitude, giving thanks, and counting our blessings for the many gifts in our lives. It’s also about sharing these gifts with others.

As we prepare to enjoy the bounty of the season with friends and loved ones, let’s remember to give thanks, share our homes and tables with others in our community, and take a moment to reflect that the most precious gifts are sitting with us at the table.

Here are our recommendations for a delicious traditional Thanksgiving meal.
