Thanksgiving is soon upon us. Across America, families and friends will be gathering in gratitude to feast upon a sumptuous meal. Some come together at mom’s table for homemade fixins, others will dine out or have their meal catered in. No matter who is doing the cooking or where you may be eating, there’s always one particular part of dinner that gets your mouth watering. For me, it is my sister’s cornbread dressing. Pour some of my mom’s gravy on it and who needs turkey? But, then the turkey makes it even more incredible!
Many years ago, after transplanting herself to the South, my sister brought this addition to our holiday table. It tasted so wonderful and we marveled at how we had done without it for years before. Now, we always have my mother’s traditional and my sister’s cornbread dressing and both get gobbled up.
Share with us your favorite part of the meal and answer our Thanksgiving questions. Feel free to post a recipe of any special family dish.

What are you thankful for this year?
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
We here at Imperfect Women would like to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.
