I love Thanksgiving. Mostly because I love to cook (you can read all about my cooking adventures on my blog, including the yummy pumkin bars pictured above!), and my family and friends love to eat. There's something about preparing a meal with a theme or a set menu: it takes all the guesswork out of what should I make? I love everyone gathered around one big table, stuffing themselves silly, plotting whether or not to get a second helping or save their stomachs for dessert. It's just plain fun.
