Thanksgiving food memories

In the spirit of promoting a more community-oriented Food section, Xpress is planning a Thanksgiving issue that will feature personal, food-related stories from readers’ Thanksgivings past.

Can you still taste the flaky crust on your grandma’s pumpkin pie? Or do you wish you could forget the year you dropped the turkey on the kitchen floor? Maybe your most memorable Thanksgiving was helping serve a meal at a homeless shelter here in Asheville? Tell us about it!

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.
