08 Nov Traditional Thanksgiving Celebration
Thanksgiving is almost here – a time for getting together with your family and friends and sharing gratitude for all that you have. Most importantly, perhaps, its also a time for over indulging in home made meals…that is something we can certainly get involved in. At Americatessen we have everything you could ever need to make sure your thanksgiving is a special one. Need stuffing? We’ve got that. Need cranberry sauce? Not a problem! What about even the small things like some seasoned salt? Look no further. We should be your go-to for all things Thanksgiving.
Here are some fun facts about Thanksgiving:
> On average, around 4,500 calories are consumed by the average person on Thanksgiving.
> Turkey wasn’t on the menu at the first Thanksgiving. Venison, duck, goose, oysters, lobster, eel, and fish were likely served, alongside pumpkins and cranberries (but not pumpkin pie or cranberry sauce!).
> Butterball answers more than 100,000 turkey-cooking questions via their Butterball Turkey Hotline each November and December.
Whatever you decide to do to celebrate Thanksgiving, we hope you eat well and make sure you have the finest ingredients straight from the States!
