    Everyone knows that when Columbus came to America under the Spanish flag they (had to have) had a nice paella with lots of sangría to celebrate.

    Love all the traditional stuff, but this year it was scallops, brats & baked potatoes for a change.

    My Ancestors beat him to it by about 500 years...did Columbus actually reach Mainland?
    Dont think he did...he would have doubtless been eaten...the Danes would have told the Skraelings (natives) all about The Battle of Cordoba...a prewarning in a way

    Had a lasagna. Glad I didn't have to make it or clean up. Just drank gin and tonics all day.

    My nephew announced that he and his wife had a Turkish dinner. I guess that's still sorta turkey related, right?

    About 2 lbs of Boars Head Oven Gold turkey - sliced super thick - plus some amazing sides the wife made .

    Boom ! No big dry bird. The turkey was almost a side dish ! :lol:

    The modern image of Santa Claus with the white beard and red suit is a construct of the Coca Cola Company.

    I am having dental issues and am on basically an all liquid diet, so this whole don't-visit-your-family mess has saved me a lot of explaining that the fact that I can't try and eat what everyone has brought

    We had C-RATS. I found a military surplus store with a warehouse full of ‘em.

    The ham and Lima beans were particularly good this year, and they complemented the sliders nicely.

    Then it was peaches for dessert, after which we each smoked a cigarette from the little mini-pack, which of course burnt to the filter in two drags and left an awful taste in our mouths.

    It was a wonderful Thanksgiving, just like old times. I had Mrs. Steerforth wear a green rain poncho to lend an air of authenticity to the occasion.

    Pizza and a few Rum / Cokes by myself.

    Actually, might make that the new tradition...seemed pretty nice.

    And a bit of the Victorians too...but not always as a fat man..they were trying to adapt old traditions in their own image

    You know, I generally dislike turkey but, my sister bought Cracker Barrel pre-made Thursday Dinner and I liked it. Though I would have preferred enchiladas...

    I'm okay with the traditional Thanksgiving fare (if it's certified organic turkey), but since it was just the mommacat and myself we grilled some wild-caught Coho salmon fillets, made some oyster dressing and steamed some broccoli. For dessert we had some Penn State Berkey Creamery ice cream shipped to us: "Death by Chocolate" and "Butter Pecan" left us sated and satisfied.

    If I wouldn’t have gone to a friends house, I probably would have grilled a ribeye. But I went there and did the usual Thanksgiving thing.

    It seems that social gathering..and sharing tales with kinfolk is something we cannot do untill well into next year here now.
    many people will struggle with this emotionally and mentally as well as socially...a mans heart is much poorer without the company of fellow man

    lets hope that the light at the end of this tunnel we are in is something other than a thieves lantern
    or as we said in the mine...some git with another bag of rusty shackles to inspect

    And the Knights Templar cross on the sheets. There are some theories...

    No, Columbus never got past the Caribbean. Amerigo Vespucci is the one who mapped North America immediately post-Columbus (Short of some stories of the directions being left by your ancestors actually being what guided the Italians). Poor Amerigo: Got the continent named after him but few even know his name.
