Thanksgiving Trivia

Little known facts about me: 
  • Personally, I love stuffing and prefer stuffing in the bird because it is more moist. 
  • Also, I prefer light turkey meat to dark meat, which is good, because I married someone who prefers dark meat, so it all balances out. 
  • My favorite dish to make for Thanksgiving is baked corn. 
  • My hubby and I have hosted several Thanksgiving dinners on our own. 
  • The secret to good turkey: buy an oven bag! 

Little known facts about my characters:
  • Bill and Tim Wilson, like to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with their mom and dad in California.
  • Bill always carves the turkey (Tim would secretly like to have the honor of doing so).
  • Tim tried to talk his mom into making chip stuffing (http://cincinnati.com/blogs/dining/2011/11/10/5656/) last year. Sadly, he was vetoed. Instead, his mom set out a bag of chips for him to eat with his stuffing. 
My favorite Thanksgiving-related quote from Dog Tags: "Who knew? By the time Thanksgiving rolled around, she might even have forgotten about what happened during her eighth grade year. Anything was possible."

Christmas Traditions

When I was in high school, my friends and I would go to another friend's house in December. Her step-mom provided food, and we decorated their family's tree. Also, we'd watch White Christmas



A few years ago, I bought a copy of White Christmas and have tried to continue the decorating tradition with my husband. The movie reminds me of good memories with my friends. 

Speaking of traditions, at Christmas, Dog Tags character Beth Martindale likes to spend time in the kitchen with her mother, baking and making holiday treats and sweets, including chocolate and peanut butter buckeyes

Do you have any favorite Thanksgiving or Christmas traditions?
