A Family Tradition

By  | 

Sharron Glasgow has been cooking the Thanksgiving turkeys for the family since she was 14 years old, and this year is no different, with the work starting 36 hours before turkey time.

"I've got the potatoes ready to cook, the rutabaga’s peeled and cut up, cranberry sauce is cut and ready to go. The butter is all nice and cut and ready to go, dressing, green beans and the glazed carrots,” lists Glasgow.

But she says it's more than good food and good company. Thanksgiving is not a holiday without the family.

"My grandmother raised us; we lost my mother when we were real young. So, especially during the holidays we do everything we can together as a family unit, and I have a lot to be grateful for,” shares Glasgow.

It takes the whole family to finish off a family meal.

Before the feast begins, each person at the table shares why they are thankful on this Thanksgiving Day, each reminding the other that being together is reason enough.
