Thanksgiving is a big cooking holiday for my family, and everyone is put to work (after watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, of course). Whether setting the table, prepping the greens, or stirring the pot of gravy, there is always something to be done! However, these tasks don't feel tedious, despite how simple they may be. When I was young, I loved sitting with my mom and grandma and tearing apart day-old bread for stuffing and watching from afar as my dad and grandpa prepped the turkey. Now that I'm older and interested in cooking, my parents let me dabble in new tasks like finding a gravy recipe or making mac and cheese.
