From everyone here at the Ferment Nation, we would like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! It's easy to get bogged down with the stresses that accompany holidays, especially if times are tough. But if you have the ability to step back from the chaos and "zone out" or "zen out," then you can remember what you truly have. Get into the spirit of Thanksgiving that should never be lost, and take a minute to realize that we could be a lot worse off.
If you're reading this blog, you are fortunate enough to have the creature comforts that allow you to be connected to the internet; You are probably sharing Thanksgiving Day with someone you love (or at least someone you can tolerate); You are probably enjoying a craft beer with your meal; So think for a moment about every random event that brought you safe and sound to the dinner table. Then, to follow along with one of my favorite Native American sayings from the Arapaho, "Before eating, always take a little time to thank the food."
Then, after dinner, take some time to read last year's Thanksgiving Day post! You might even want to recollect Thanksgiving Day recommendations from 2009...
Finally, you may want to hear which side dishes Little Richard recommends for your special meal:
So if you drink some awesome craft beer this Thanksgiving, or taste an amazing food pairing, give us a shout and we'll say thank you to you by sharing your info and reviews on our site. Thank you most of all for reading the Ferment Nation. Cheers!
