It's Thanksgiving Day so it's time for turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and hummingbird cake (at my house, anyways). But that's not the truly traditional Thanksgiving meal. The pilgrims and the Indians ate deer, codfish, and boiled pumpkin at the first Thanksgiving. There were no ovens for bread (or hummingbird cake) and there was no sugar or milk when Thanksgiving came around.
The pilgrims ate their meal with their hands, spoons, and knives. They didn't have forks. The original Thanksgiving lasted three days.
