I am pleased to share my second essay contribution to Life & Thyme – Issue three. An effort to keeping the legacy of the Greco Thanksgiving alive in some small way.
This was the most difficult story to get on paper – laughs in between tears recalling nearly 30 years of memories in the kitchen, and with the cousins over the years – and then, to realize this recurring story of our lives has started to come to a close as of late. In 2015, it was the first year I didn’t get to cook for my family, as I have been my whole life, and it seems as though we’re all floating away from each other again this year. Many of us are moving away, joining new families, and starting new traditions. I can only hope we somehow find our way back again, perhaps by a trail of toastey bread crumbs, so that many more generations of Greco can descend upon our home and know what it means to find a purpose in life through a night at our table.
Because food doesn’t make sense unless we share it with others.
Enjoy the wonderfully, curated Issue 3 of Life & Thyme here.
