Do you have special memories of Thanksgiving growing up? I do - we used to sing "Over the River and Through the Woods" on the way to Grandma & Grandpa's!
Back in the 1950's growing up in Northern New York, way north of Syracuse, we used to go to Grandma & Grandpa's for Thanksgiving dinner. They owned a dairy farm, and the cows always needed to be milked so they didn't leave the farm much, and could Grandma cook!
It was really cold back then. And Grandma cooked on a wood stove. The wood room was off the kitchen and always smelled of freshly split aged wood. Her old wood stove was huge - and there was another wood stove for heat in the dining room. I remember how she hated the electric stove when she got it - I think I was in high school then.
My favorite part of Thanksgiving back then was the desserts. I don't know how Grandma baked such wonderful pies and cakes on that stove, and she never really measured. And the turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, and vegies were perfect too!
