When you think of Thanksgiving you think of ham, turkey and stuffing. But not in my family. We like to put our own little spin on Thanksgiving.

We start our own traditions.

On that fourth Thursday each November, we set out a chicken and waffle buffet spread. The buffet consists of waffles, chicken, an omelet bar, sausage, bacon, donuts etc.

We also have a second theme to go with our chicken and waffle buffet.

This year’s theme is “A Madden Thanksgiving.” Over the last two years that a new Madden NFL 18 video game is dropped, we’ve centered our feast around it.

While we have many games to determine what section of the family takes home the trophy, the cousins, brothers and sisters battle it out in a Madden Football Tournament.

In our home, it’s about food, football and fun.
