    There is a statute of Leif Ericson in the middle of Reykjavik, Iceland. My Icelandic friend took me to see it. He assured me that Leif beat the Spanish by a few hundred years and that earlier Vikings beat Leif by a few hundred more years.

    Still, I'll take the paella and sangría over anything the Vikings would have chowed down on. Good food is worth the wait.

    Wow, the things you learn on TDPRI. I have never met a U.S. citizen that does not eat a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, and here we are. @unixfish has opened my eyes.

    Is this a demographic thing? Perhaps those who do not eat turkey on Thanksgiving only play S.S amps?:twisted: Perhaps right handed people playing left handed guitars? Or maybe these are the ones that own antiqua strats?:D

    A little late to the party here but....

    Our food was pretty traditional, but because my sister-in-law is in quarantine due to a possible exposure, my wife set up a Zoom call. We set her a place at the table, set the laptop there and had coordinated eating. Good conversation, and food was had by all.

    We had turkey, and it's always good for the first meal, then gets tiresome after. I don't know why roasted turkey doesn't taste like lunchmeat roasted turkey....

    We made lasagna using a classic Italian blend of beef, veal, and pork. The cheese was fresh mozzarella, romano, parmesan, fontina, and provelone. All layered with whole wheat pasta. It came out a little soupy, but good. We immediately made a list of how we'll tweak the preparation next time.

    All was accompanied by a glass or two of tannat wine. Tannat is a big, solid, oaky, red, punch in the face. This one wasn't as punch in the face as the last kind we had, but tannat isn't messing around about how it tastes and feels. I needs to spend 8-10 years in the barrel, and then bottle, to be drinkable. You either like it or you never want to taste it again.

    Before you throw the rest of the turkey out, it's time to make soup with it. It's labor intensive, but you can pick a lot of meat off the carcass and use the meat you've already sliced off. Lots of veggies and herbs in any kind of broth, simmer an hour or so, and freeze in 1 quart plastic tubs. Move one to the refrigerator and in 2-3 days it's thawed enough to readily provide soup for 2 people.

    Yup. Did chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes and green beans. The carcass is in a pot with mirepoix for stock at the moment.

    Perhaps you need to buy better lunchmeat turkey?

    I think that was a really nice idea. Included without being local. Nice.

    The wife and I are vegetarians and we weren't having any guests during Covid, so no turkey in our house this year. We made some bread, some fondue, some soup, and some desserts.

    Lobster tail, bacon-wrapped scallops, NY strip steak, shrimp cocktail, mixed veggies, stuffing, homemade cherry and apple pies. We threw the stuffing and pie in there to have elements of “tradition.”

    Last year the main dish was meat loaf, this year ham.

    My daughter hates turkey. I’m not that fond of it myself.
    The meal is irrelevant. It’s about family and acknowledging that for which we are most thankful.
