You might not be able to hang out with your favorite aunts and cousins that would normally fly in for the holidays, or even worse you won’t be eating your aunt Linda’s famous Thanksgiving dish that you’ve been looking forward to all year. To help recreate those yummy memories, we are inviting to our Altima Business’ Thanksgiving table by sharing one of my favorite recipes.
