This year was my mom and dad’s turn to host the gathering in their Skokie home. As you can see by the photos, the table was packed with all of the foods that one might expect at a Thanksgiving feast. One of my friends asked if we had any traditional foods from the Ukraine in honor of the Holmer family roots. The truth is we didn’t, but I can definitely see Varenyky, a traditional dumpling filled with mashed potatos and minced meat fitting right in at next year’s Thanksgiving table!
I hope that you and your family had a Thanksgiving filled with family, friends, joy and good food!
