Gobble, Gobble, Gobble
Having been a vegetarian for more than half of my life at this point (I refused to eat meat at 12, and for some reason never had the desire to go back, still dont) I don't eat turkey but up North where we often have our Thanksgiving dinner with family they are everywhere. I was looking up turkeys on Google today, according to the Encyclopaedia Brittanica, they've been in the USA since the 17th century, they were originally bred for their beautiful plumage. And I didn't know this but the males heads which are normally red, turn blue when they're excited.
So there's your turkey facts for the Holiday.
I'm off to Carmel for the long Thanksgiving weekend. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday with family and friends. Eat, drink, and be thankful for all that we have been given. Enjoy.
