At home sick so we ordered in Middle Eastern...fitting as I have no problem with a Mosque at Ground Zero, but seriously, any Americans here NOT have turkey today? Usually we do, but with some homemade manicotti, miss that today for sure! What non-traditional Thanksgiving food do you eat?

There are so many things more tasty and less cumbersome to make than a fucking Turkey. It's a retarded tradition and it's dying rapidly in some parts of the country.

I agree. We made a New York Roast this year and it is 100x better than a turkey.

We did, however, have our turkey meal two days ago when we had our company party and we still have left overs from that.

I skipped the turkey this year for Canadian thanksgiving and went out for Peking duck instead.

I have never liked the taste of turkey, so avoid it like the plague anyway. We had a terrific smoked ham instead.

The best turkey we ever had was from KFC. That turkey was devoured in 15 minutes.

We last did turkey a decade ago. This year was venison, but Thanksgiving was last Saturday.

Hello,

I am a newbie, saw this article and thought I would add my 2 cents in. Wild turkey was eaten at the first Thanksgiving because it was immediately available and would feed a lot of people. That is why turkey is cooked a lot still. Since all kinds of foods are available to us today, anything cooked and eaten with friends and family can be a thanksgiving meal. Some families prefer different traditions than others. I think the holiday is all about being thankful we are still alive and together with friends and family..just as the pilgrims celebrated it.

I had chicken.

I hate turkey.

Always dry, and I'm lazy to brine the damned thing prior to cooking.
