When’s the last time you told your family and friends that you love and adore them?

Have you lately thought about how awesome it is that you have a roof over your head, good food to eat, and some special people in our lives?

Sometimes we forget to feel lucky and miss on being thankful for all the people in our lives, and all the things we have.

But don’t worry if you haven’t done it yet, Thanksgiving is a perfect day to do so! 

There is no better way to feel great about the things you have than to eat lots of good food with family and friends! So we are going to look at the nine most fiesta foods to eat on Thanksgiving day. 

Thanksgiving is a declared holiday that is celebrated in the United States -(US) on the fourth Thursday of November every year. When the holiday was first proclaimed years ago, it was meant to celebrate the last harvest- the time when crops and grown food is collected from the fields.

While Canadian Thanksgiving falls on the first Monday of October every year and Canada was the first country to celebrate the thanksgiving festival, which was put into practice by Martin Frobisher in 1578 in his honor of returning safely from an exploration trip/voyage. 

Today, Thanksgiving has a bit of different meaning for people. For many Canadians and Americans, Thanksgiving is for spending time with their family, friends, and dear ones to remember to be thankful for what they have.

Thanksgiving is also a time to eat a lot with your dear and near ones. Several traditional foods are served on Thanksgiving, and it just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without them.

10 Traditional Foods for a True Thanksgiving Meal

Have you lately thought about how awesome it is that you have a roof over your head, good food to eat, and some special people in our lives?

Sometimes we forget to feel lucky and miss on being thankful for all the people in our lives, and all the things we have.

So What Is Thanksgiving All About?

A holiday in the United States that is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November every year.

It is celebrated as the last harvest, the time when crops and plants grown food is collected from the fields.

Did You Know Canada was the first country to celebrate the festival of giving thanks, 

 After Martin Frobisher in 1578 returned safely from an exploration trip.

Many traditional foods are served on Thanksgiving, and it just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without them.

1. Turkey

Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same and complete without the turkey on a plate. The turkey is prepared whole, filled with vegetable fruit, or other. The best-roasted turkeys are juicy and delicious, but roasting a turkey takes skill.

2. Stuffing/Dressing

Stuff” is another way to say “things. But it has also become a side dish, a meal of food stuffing made of bread and herbs that go inside the roasted turkey.

3. Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are potatoes that have been peeled and boiled and then are crushed/mashed into a soft and creamy dish. 

Add milk, butter, and some garlic, and you have a perfect dish!

All thanks to the Potato Harvesters! 

4. Gravy

While Turkey is being cooked, it will create juices. These juices can be turned into the dressing, a thick sauce. And this sauce is poured onto the mashed potatoes to add more flavors to it. 

5. Cranberry Sauce

There is something about the tangy yet sweet and slightly sour taste of cranberry sauce, which makes it the complete side dish for turkey.

To offer a companion to your Turkey, all you need to do is; boil water, of course, cranberries! Sugar, lemon zest (grated lemon peel), and then cook it on a small flame. 

6. Pecan Pie

Complete the meal with a delicious pecan pie, a pie that uses pecans (a type of nut) with maple syrup and spices. 

Pecan pie is irresistible; It’s hard to say no to it! 

Even if guests are full to eat any more, they’ll be tempted to make room for pecan pie.

 7. Corn

Bread rolls are another staple or an essential element of the Thanksgiving meals and recipes. Often these roles are cornbread, which is made with cornmeal, a powder from dried and ground corn.

8. Green Bean Casserole

A casserole is a stew that’s simmered in the oven. Green bean casserole has the creamy blend of mushroom soup, fried onions, and— of course—green beans!

9. Candied Yams

Sweet potatoes are creamy and yellow kind of potatoes that are also called yams. The soft texture and sweet flavors of these potatoes make them a versatile – side dish for the main course meal. 

You can make a casserole with them, bake them or mash them like ordinary/regular potatoes and add brown sugar, spices, butter, and marshmallows on top of it and bake them into candied yams, a deliciously sweet dish which might remind you of candy as the name suggests.

10. Pumpkin Pie

The pumpkin spice taste in America means that autumn has arrived. Mostly everything has a pumpkin spice version and zest! There is a pumpkin spice cookies, pumpkin spice coffee; there are even pumpkin bagels and spice sausages. 

Though its a surprise that the flavors do not have actual pumpkin in it. But pumpkin pie does definitely have.

 A delicious pumpkin filling and a warm spice flavor inside a flaky crust will never miss on warming you up during the autumn. Therefore there is no surprise we love pumpkin spice so much in fall!

You don’t have to live in Canada or America to enjoy Thanksgiving. 

All you need is an empty belly, a lot of food, and some friends and family. 

Always remember to be thankful for all that you have! Wishing You A Happy Thanksgiving Day!!
