Soule Restaurant: Happy Thanksgiving!

The first Thanksgiving was a feast in celebration of the pilgrim’s first harvest.

The Native Americans provided four deer for the feast, and the pilgrims’ contributed wild fowl. Lobster, goose, duck, seal, eel, and cod were also plentiful during that period, so it is likely that their tables possessed a good variety. Yet, turkey has become synonymous with Thanksgiving in America, and historians are unable to give a definitive reason why.

Maybe it was just the delicious scent of roasting turkey with fresh cornbread stuffing and cranberry sauce, accompanied by candied yams and macaroni and cheese, and collard greens. (Callaloo if you’re Caribbean!)

The sweet pumpkin pie with whipped cream that follows dinner so perfectly…
All of the, combined with a day of watching football; the parade; the official start of the holiday season. With family and friends together, giving thanks for home, health and heart.

Yum…works for me!
