Like all of you, over the years my family has developed holiday traditions, and our own special way of celebrating. Our family has grown, and we don’t all live in the same place any longer. Celebrating Thanksgiving last year was especially hard, because our families were dealing with COVID and quarantines. As a result of all of that, our celebration routines have definitely changed. If your Thanksgiving Day is going to be celebrated differently this year, here are some ideas that might help make the adapting process easier. While some of us thrive on change, it’s very difficult for others. No matter what your situation, you can make new traditions by adding a fresh dessert to the menu, mark your place settings with special tags, or if you are blessed to have kids around, make a festive banner. Read on for inspiration, and lots of Thanksgiving Day ideas!

Now I want to share one my family’s favorite dishes. It’s a set-in-stone tradition for Thanksgiving Day, and sometimes it reappears at Christmas. It’s the classic Jiffy Cornbread Mix Baked Corn Casserole. If you’ve had it, you know how good it is…and if you haven’t, you are in for a treat! This corn casserole can be thrown together in under 10 minutes, and it cooks evenly every time. The only tip I have is to plan your oven space, and make sure you have room for this to cook for about an hour, right before you plan to eat. Our family would never, ever take this off of our Thanksgiving menu!
