We’re very immersed in many different worlds – from
Automotive and Powersports, to RVing and
Camping, to Home Décor, and I’m pleased to be able to tie my interests in these
various things to my job. In the coming months, I’ll be writing about those
different worlds, and introducing you to innovations in those industries and
showing you the latest and greatest cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more, demonstrating some of our innovative products, as
well as sharing a little bit more of myself through videos and blogs.
As a child, I grew up attending Thanksgiving dinner at my
large Italian family’s house in suburban Washington, D.C. The table with both leafs in extended almost
into the living room, and in the Italian tradition of making extreme quantities
of food, was covered with a 20-pound (at least!) turkey, salad, at least three or four types
of vegetables, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes – and even a pasta
These days, our dinners are much smaller and a little less
crazy, with my family spread out over several states, and some of them no
longer with us, but I’m thankful to sit at the table with my parents, my
significant other and his two daughters, and share a wonderful meal that we
collaboratively cook and try (really hard) to make healthy as well as
delicious. Still essential at our table, besides turkey, of course – cranberry
sauce from the can, sweet potatoes (although whipped now, not with marshmallows),
stuffing, salad, mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
As time goes on, families change and grow, and traditions
change. Lately, going to grab the hottest deals happens before the pumpkin pie even hits the table! I hope that you’ll share your
family traditions with us, too. What’s
essential on your Thanksgiving table? What are you thankful for? Share in the
