Thanksgiving, Revamped

Life’s too short not to luxuriate in holiday repasts when special days like Thanksgiving roll around. It offers a perfect opportunity to gather around the table with family and friends who have a like-minded “feast” mentality. While most people are pleased to see old standbys such as roasted turkey and stuffing on the table, suffice to say that many Thanksgiving menus are probably in desperate need of an infusion of new blood. That means you should channel Madonna when you think of T-day dishes: they don’t need to go away, but they can benefit from some reinvention. Yes, everything from the appetizer to dessert can be reborn by incorporating inventive whims and fancies. Even better if they supply a cache of healthy aging nutrients that’ll let you and your feast-mates gobble without leaving the table with a wobble. So, ladies and gentlemen, start your ovens. These fresh takes on festive recipes are sure to widen any cook’s horizon and will definitely bring some fresh yum to your feast table. Heck, you’ll even be looking for ways to make them part of your regular menu long after the last relative has exited the front door.
