Celebs are just like us! They have their favorite Thanksgiving dish they can’t do without and traditions that they look forward to each year. We rounded up some of Country’s hottest acts and asked them what their favorite dish is and what is their favorite Thanksgiving memory/tradition. Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!
Favorite Dish: My Mom’s, one of a kind, home style egg noodles cooked in chicken broth and chicken bullion. Then of course we like to put them on mashed potatoes. It’s so good & I can’t wait to dig in again this year!
Favorite tradition: I really love to cook, so thanksgiving has become the holiday that my mom and I spend cooking together. We make a menu and then split which dishes we will do, all still cooking together. My mamaw is no longer with us, but we honor her by making a lot of recipes from her recipe book. My mom is my best friend, so this is something I look forward to every year.
Favorite Dish: The Turkey. When I think of Thanksgiving I think of a Turkey big enough to feed a small army, my family is 7 people without the extended crew. We slow roast the turkey for 3 hours on a Kettle BBQ over a mix of hot coals and hickory wood. Every year as soon as that bird hits the grill everyone huddles around it, like we’re trying to watch the game, taking in all that smokey goodness, laughing and joking around.
Favorite Memory: That’s what Thanksgiving is about for me. It’s not about the food but how the food, prep and the day brings families together. I remember one year when I was little we all decided to go for a hike before dinner and drove out to Orangeville Ontario to do a section of the Bruce Trail. We got to this one part of the trail where the rock starts coming out from under the ground and makes this ramp climbing up to a set of small cliffs. My siblings and I must have run up and down that rock ramp for hours. Good times.
Favorite Tradition: Every year we drive up to see my family and listen to Christmas music together in the car.
Favorite Memory: I used to put on performances for my family. I don’t know why, but I would gather everyone around and make them listen to me sing opera.
Favorite Tradition/Memory: I love waking up early on Thanksgiving morning to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. We’d always have lunch with family at my Nana’s house and after lunch all the cousins run around and play hide and seek.
Favorite Tradition: And we always fought over who was gonna get to pull the Turkey wishbone. One time the wishbone broke dead even and we had a knock down drag-out over who won.
