Since I've moved back to Alabama and 75 miles away from my family two years ago, Thanksgiving was a holiday that triggered my excitement.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, I won't get that opportunity this year. The coronavirus has forced residents across the country to stay home, preventing get-together of family and friends.
Visions of tender carved turkey breast, savory stuffing, turkey gravy, sweet-scented cranberry sauce with spicy green bean casserole and hot rolls dance inside my head. My older sister never disappoints with her meal preparation.
I always saved my appetite for the last Thursday in November. I often bring food back home for the holiday weekend.
My best bet for the traditional Thanksgiving meal will be getting take-out to last a day or two and avoid the dreaded Black Friday shopping frenzy. Another option is loading up two plates from the company's pre-Thanksgiving dinner to have in my possession.
My fingers are crossed for a safer Christmas Day holiday.
