Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday bar none. Everybody in the country celebrates it from the Kashmiri Cab Driver to the Trinidadian Nurse to the Canadian immigrant. It’s the most American of all holidays, even if Canada has something called “Action de Grace” or Canadian Thanksgiving. This is held in October probably because by November, the frozen north often lives up to its name and even the Brussels Sprouts have frost on them. American Thanksgiving goes back to the first European arrival on these shores, in 1620. Given that we’re almost at Thanksgiving’s 400th year, we were bound to get some recipes right by now. And although Chewing the Fat has only been around for four Thanksgivings, we’ve had a terrific response to our Thanksgiving recipes. And since we’re up to our ears getting Monte’s Ham out to our growing list of customers, I thought we’d revisit the 5 most popular Thanksgiving Recipes. I’m even going to put them in reverse order. Drumbeat Please!
