November 27, 2014 is the glorious day we will sit around our dining room tables that are exquisitely adorned with all types of delicious food. Most of us recognize the Thanksgiving holiday as a time for stuffing ourselves to the brim with our favorite holiday foods and a time when we are supposed to be thankful.
