3 ways to a holiday feast

This year, the dining team at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, really started off the holiday feasting season right by putting on not one, not two, but three different pre-Thanksgiving dinners, each with a distinctly different vibe.

The Thanksgiving Bash event stretched over three days in two participating dining halls. The first night was a Southern/Cajun dinner that featured shrimp and grits. The second night was a health- and wellness-focused Traditional with a Twist dinner, with pumpkin chili and plant-based dishes. The third and final night brought it all back home (Miami University sits squarely in the Midwest, after all) with a Traditional Ohio menu with such homespun favorites as cider baked ham and good old mashed potatoes and gravy.
