Growing up in a family of over achievers, meal times were no exception. My father, who works more hours than anyone I have ever met, treated a holiday off as a chance to team up with my mother to really put on a spread.  Thanksgiving is and always has been his favorite holiday.  It’s a special day, celebrated nationwide, where there are no presents or elaborate decorations. Just family, friends and copious amounts of food and drinks. Never less than three types of turkey and two kinds of ham, the menu that day dictated what we would eat for the next 2 weeks. If the path of excess leads to the palace of wisdom, then we had a second home every November. This menu has that spirit but with fewer leftovers.
