Did you know dear readers that Benjamin Franklin wanted the national bird for America to be the Turkey?
And now we are fast approaching Turkey Day!
Better known as Thanksgiving!!
Who am I fooling?
Everyone calls it Turkey Day.
It is the national day of pigging out!
Only it is traditional to eat turkey not ham.
The day when we honor the pilgrims by commemorating a feast of thankfulness .
It really doesn’t matter that our typical American feast does not compare at all to what the pilgrims probably had.
No one is going to tell us we can’t have our cranberry sauce and pumpkin pies!
After, stuffing ourselves with more stuff then we stuffed the Turkey with (that was a little redundant wasn’t it?) we, waddle in to the living room and watch football, well some do, some snooze and some try to do both!
I like Thanksgiving and not just for the food, I like that it is not about getting something, it is about being thankful and counting up the many blessings we have.
Not always so good at that, so Thanksgiving is a nice reminder.
I hope you and yours have a great Thanksgiving!
What type of food ,besides turkey, must grace your table for this most traditional holiday dinner?
