It’s kind of challenging to think about what food to prepare on Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a holiday that almost feels like Christmas. And as part of its tradition, it is on Thanksgiving day that people gather for a feast with their loved ones, acquaintances, or work colleagues. Apart from celebrating the fruits of hard work and good things that have happened in our lives, it’s also a day where we cozy up and participate in gleeful activities. But due to the pandemic, we are breaking yet again a few Thanksgiving traditions this year.

But sure enough, you will celebrate Thanksgiving with your family at home.
