|Witless wild turkeys lazily strolling through our front yard.|
Many historians avow that lobster was the real entree at that first Thanksgiving. Back in the day, lobster was plentiful and easy to catch unlike cagey wild turkeys. The witless specimens lazily strolling through our neck of the woods today bear no resemblance to their proud forebears.
No one knows for sure how the turkey usurped the lobster's rightful role in our Thanksgiving observances but I suspect it may be linked to the powerful but silent Turkey Lobby.
It wasn't too long after moving to New England that I decided to serve lobster one Thanksgiving.
Another confession. Pumpkin pie is not my favorite. It qualifies as heresy here in New England. My visitor's visa will shortly be rescinded. And I was so close; 22 years towards the 25 year requirement for permanent residency.
Have you ever served something crazy for Thanksgiving?
Thanks for reading,
