In the United States, Thanksgiving is a popular holiday at the end of November. It is a day where people are thankful for everything they have. For example, people can express thanks for their family, friends, and pets.
Thanksgiving entails a big, traditional feast with family and friends. There are several types of typical foods:
Turkey with stuffing and gravy: Generally, turkey is roasted in an oven with stuffing inside. Stuffing is a mixture of bread, carrots, celery, onions, and butter. Gravy is made from the remaining liquids of the roasted turkey. When the turkey is done, gravy is drizzled over the turkey to make it more tender.
Mashed potatoes: Mashed potatoes are, literally, mashed potatoes. You usually add milk, butter, and other spices.
Cranberry Sauce: Cranberries are mixed, or pureed, with sugar. It is eaten with the turkey.
Pecan pie: This is one of my favorite dishes! Pecan pie is made of pecans (a type of nut), sugar, flour, milk, butter, eggs, and many other ingredients.
