No, this is not a recipe blog. Although if you have any, feel free to pass them along. Today, I’ve decided to research that ubiquitous of Thanksgiving symbols–the turkey.
Did you know that the turkey got it’s name from the turk-turk sound it makes when it’s scared? And wouldn’t you be dropping candy corn if there was a whole day devoted to eating you and your kin?
There even a song all about the turkey. Which goes a bit far, even for a foodie like me.
While no one is quite certain if turkey was served during the first American Thanksgiving, it was recorded the four men were sent afowling (and given that the woods wouldn’t have been too over hunted, they should have found at least one bird, turkey or no).
