For some people, the day after Thanksgiving is the green light to start playing Christmas music, put up the family tree, and decorate the house with jingle bells and wreaths. The entire week after Thanksgiving is the time when we start to transition from autumn to winter. It’s not only the time for trading in our rain boots for snow shoes and pea coats for parkas, but it is also a time to change things up in the kitchen.
A new season means new ingredients and flavors. With winter comes seasonal delights such as gingerbread cookies, eggnog, and peppermint. So enjoy the last of those cinnamon sticks and pumpkin pies for one more week because in just a couple of days, it’ll be time to celebrate the winter season!
