Turkey!

This big bird was served during our Thanksgiving dinner at my BIL's house. It was our niece Clara who cooked this 25lbs turkey, she did a pretty good job!

The celebration of Thanksgiving will be incomplete without the legendary Turkey. It derives its name from the 'turk turk' sounds it makes when scared. Turkey was at one time being considered as the national symbol of America. Benjamin Franklin felt that turkey was the right choice because it was a good runner and had a sharp sight.

Here is the picture of the traditional Thanksgiving dinner: a festive table, a loving family, glowing candles and the finest china used only on special occasions. And the centerpiece of the festive meal: the turkey, golden brown, with stuffing and gravy on the side, awaiting the carving knife and whetting the appetites of all those present. This centerpiece scene, emerges from both holiday traditions and a unique world history of a native American god bird.

Ang sarap talaga ng turkey lalo na't me cranberry sauce at pumpkin pie. Yun yata ang ilan sa traditional na handa ng mga Amerikano pag Thanksgiving Day. Isang napakagandang kaugalian yan ng mga Amerikano na sana ay huwag malilimutan. Thanks sa sumptuous post. God bless you all always.
