Eco Eats: Thanksgiving Favourite Eats

  Thanksgiving Day is one of my favourite holidays! A wonderful time for friends and family to come together and make new memories during a fantastic dinner.  It is also a time for reflecting on what we are thankful for.  It’s always been a tradition at Thanksgiving Dinner and/or Friendsgiving for everyone sitting around the table to say one thing they are most thankful for.  Through all the good and bad that has happened this year, there is still so much to be thankful for.    When it comes to the holidays, the main attraction is always the dinner table garnished with chic decorations and tasty treats.  ’Tis the season to start whipping up in the kitchen some old fashioned favourite holiday dishes.  Here are some of our favourite Thanksgiving side dishes, drinks and desserts.  Whenever possible, support local.  Some local favourites making their way to our Thanksgiving Dinner are Coconut Marshmallows from Powder Monkey Gourmet Treats and Cayman Thanksgiving Tea from Tea Time in Cayman  Blood Orange & Cranberry Sauce    Ingredients: 1 bag …
