Do you have family traditions that make you cry? No? Me neither, thankfully! 🦃 🍽🥧
BUT, my mom’s mashed potato recipe calls for a a mountain of sautéed onions, herbed de Provence, and cream cheese. I sadly made the mistake of taking out my contacts just before cutting up onions. Not my smartest decision ever. 😳
I know this is a holiday rooted in colonialism, and it’s not really a reason to celebrate. But I do appreciate the momentary pause to bring friends and family close, and focus on gratitude. 💕
