As someone who has dealt with an eating disorder my whole life, I can't say there's any food I look forward to eating. I am in recovery, but it's still one day at a time. Thanksgiving dinner only brings up awful memories for me, and I always felt so out of place living in a world where people live to eat.
That being said, the food that feels safest to me would have to be green beans, and I'd love to fix the recipe as presented in your magazine! Maybe it'll help me segue into the Thanksgiving dinner tradition without panic.

Rum (Captain Morgan) and Coke. I get pissy-eyed drunk,obnoxious and tell everyone exactly what I think of them. It only happens once a year and then for the rest of the year I am happy,happy,happy.

I'm looking forward to some Turkey Mole; Our family has served Turkey Mole for over 30 years; it reminds me of my mother (past away 4 years ago) because she used to make it. My Sisters Maria and Magdalena have continued with the Turkey Mole tradition. Its sooo good!!!!

I love to add dried "grown in the USA" cherries, dark dark brown sugar, pecans, with a little half and half cream with my oatmeal.
All natural, but you need to watch the portion. Reason for buying cherries grown in he USA. California, and washington. is because I cooked up a bunch of oatmeal with a cheaper inported cherries, set this out overnight. In the morning when I raised the lid of the pan, I had an enormous amount of hatched small little flies. ALL OVER. That made me think what other imported dried fruits, nuts and food are also infested with flies that are dorment until you wake them up. Dont know how they got through the cooking faze. I tried this same thing using USA grown cherries and have never had a problem.
That taught me a big lesson when buying dried fruit...

Creamed pearl onions, mashed turnips (solo or blended into mashed potatoes) German style creamed spinach garnished with crumbled bacon and hard boiled egg slices then end the meal with hot mince pie. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone and may God bless us all.
