Massachusetts Folks are Sure to Load Up on a Popular Food Item This Thanksgiving
As I have mentioned in the past, November is one of my favorite months. Is there anything more relaxing than Massachusetts in November? Don't get me wrong, I love the foliage that October offers in Massachusetts but I also enjoy the post-foliage look of November. Do you agree or am I just one of the weird ones?
November, Thanksgiving, and Massachusetts are a Perfect Combination for Me
I have also mentioned that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Getting the family together and enjoying a feast is always a fun gathering for me. Plus, there is plenty to be thankful for. Even during tough times whether it's inflation, expensive heating bills, etc. I tend to be a glass-half-full type of person. In addition, I'm thankful for the wonderful aroma coming from my oven on Thanksgiving morning. Sure, I have to get up early with my wife to dress and stick the turkey in the oven but the flavor-filled scents are a great payoff.
