Countdown to Thanksgiving dinner

In 1621, the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indian tribe gathered for a small Fall harvest meal. The event would later be known as the “first Thanksgiving.” This tradition would continue, and in 1863, Abraham Lincoln declared the fourth Thursday of November the Thanksgiving holiday.

One of the most important parts of Thanksgiving is surely the food and preparing the best meal is top of the list. For many American households, the Turkey is the prime holiday dish served with loads of mashed potatoes, maybe a green bean casserole, and a pumpkin pie for dessert. Surely we hope your dinner plans are ready, but if not, we have you have covered.
