Happy Thanksgiving! The time to give thanks has come once again. A time where we all sit around the same table and share a meal together with friends and family. Though it may be not be the same as previous years, it will still be filled with love, either in-person or virtually.
Of course, with the abundance of food it’s good to remember some of the tips we’ve learned along the way. Like disposing of excess grease properly by putting it in a plastic container and freezing it until you’re ready to properly dispose of it. You don’t want to just pour it down the drain where it can cause some serious pipe blockage.
With that being said: fire up that oven, baste that turkey, keep that one aunt away from the kitchen, and tell that one uncle to go easy on the cerveza. It’s time for: Thanksgiving Movies and their Pie Pairings for that post dinner food coma! Because let's face it, you have room for a little more.
Scent of a woman (For The Adults)
Scent of a Woman (1992) Al Pacino won an Oscar for his portrayal of suave, blind Army Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade who spends Thanksgiving weekend with college student Charlie Simms played by Chris O’Donnell. Along the way, Slade teaches Simms a few things while getting a new lease on life himself. Hoo-ah! Oh yeah… parents, you’re going to want to check this out.
Pecan Pie (a la Mode), like Frank Slade the pecan pie might have a rougher exterior, but has many layers to it. From the pecans to the soft pie beneath them, sweeten up the deal with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Fantastic Mr. Fox (for the kids)
Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009) Director Wes Anderson is at it again with his quirky and unique approach to storytelling. This time in a fantastic stop motion animation movie headlined by George Clooney’s take on Mr. Fox. Follow the adventure of Mr. Fox and his animal friends as they fight for their homes against some angry local farmers. This heartfelt story is good for everyone, but the kids will absolutely love it.
Pumpkin Pie, this signature Thanksgiving dessert is the perfect pairing to go along with the movie, both in appearance and sweetness.
Planes, Trains and Automobiles (for the Family)
Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987) Join Neal Page, a businessman played by the one and only Steve Martin, as he desperately tries to get home to his family for Thanksgiving. When Neal’s path crosses that of traveling salesman Del Griffith, played by the late and great John Candy, hilarity ensues as the odd man duo tries just about every mode of transportation to get Neal home in time. Can Neal make it home for Thanksgiving? Most importantly, can Neal survive traveling with his new travel buddy?
Apple Pie (a la Mode), because what’s more American than Steve Martin and Apple Pie? Sweeten the deal with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
