I am so Thankful for Turkeys

By
Real Estate Agent WV0026375

Ah yes, turkeys! What would Thanksgiving be like without turkey, dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, etc.  It was and still is a tradition to have turkey every Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Turkeys are big enough to feed a crowd... true for my family! Turkey dinner went a long way with a large family of 11 children.  And, really it is an easy dinner to fix. I usually prepare my turkey the night before. Sometimes, I get up at 4am and put the turkey on and you can imagine the wonderful smell when you wake up that morning.  I remember this so well growing up.

Where did this tradition come from?  The colonists had hunted wild turkeys during the autumn of 1621 and since turkey is a uniquely North American (and scrumptious) bird, it gained traction as the Thanksgiving meal of choice for Americans after Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1863 and turkeys took center stage at Thanksgiving.

 

Thankful for TURKEYS

Uphold the tradition, have a turkey feast

Yes more please

 

So, will you be having turkey for your Thanksgiving Day dinner? 

 

I am so thankful for turkeys and can't wait for our turkey feast....Happy Turkey Day!

Rebecca, I love the smell of turkey cooking and my favorite are sandwiches the next day. Thanksgiving is such a special holiday. Are you planning on being up at 4am this year to put your turkey in?

Me too, Rebecca.  However, I doubt that this time of year the turkeys are thankful for us!

Hello Rebecca,  We are thankful for our turkey to be shared up at the cabin with 15 people this year.  We switch to fresh turkey two years ago and now it will always be a fresh turkey!

Endre Barath, Jr. - my family will be here around noon and we will eat around 2pm. I don't like to be in the kitchen as I like to converse with everyoe. So much of my meal is prepared the night before or very early in the morning.

It's traditional for us to enjoy turkey on Thanksgiving. I won a smoked turkey at a recent Realtor Open House and it was delicious!

I fix turkey at other times of the year too. I was up at 6 AM putting the bird in the oven. At 9 AM the house was smelling good.
