I absolutely love my grandmother’s turkey recipe, which is a wonderful family tradition, during the holidays. Of course my favorite tradition, like many people I am sure, is holiday dinners with family and friends. My sisters and our families have dinner at my mom’s house for every holiday and in my family that means 36 people! Because there are so many of us, dinner gatherings for my family are nothing short of an event and usually a very epic event at that. Equally important to being with family, laughing and having fun, is the delicious food we eat and the holiday drinks that we make together. We have a long history of cherished recipes that have been passed down from one generation to the next.
This year at Christmas dinner my mom decided to make lasagna, which I love, instead of my grandmother’s turkey recipe. As usual, we all ate till were couldn’t move and then, my mom made the announcement that my sisters and I have been waiting for. In light of our growing family, she is finally going to release the reigns of having all holiday dinners at her house to me and my sisters. You have to understand that I love to cook so my excitement was over the top! Besides, it’s my mom’s turn to relax and let us do the work!
