"Every Thanksgiving is a special time for our family and is really treated like a family reunion. One of the things I enjoy the most is that every year after lunch, we head out to the woods and hunt for the afternoon!"
"One year, we decided to go non-traditional and cook some huge slabs of rib on the grill. I was preparing for guests when Aubrey, my husband, came in and said, 'We have blackened ribs.' I laughed and said, 'What do you mean?' He immediately replied, 'I mean they are on fire.' I thought he was kidding. Turns out that he really wasn't. The grease drippings had caught fire, causing a major inferno that burned up the ribs and the backside of the chimney. So the meat of the day, rather than slow-cooked, was done—toast—and we had some good side dishes for Thanksgiving!"
"We are so thankful and blessed to have spent every Thanksgiving for the last 22 years together despite several moves, overseas assignments and military deployment. One of our most memorable was our first together in Seoul, South Korea. Trying to create a familiar, traditional, home-cooked meal in a foreign country proved formidable, but we made it work! For us, the best part is being together. For this, we are grateful.”
