Here are the rules:
Want to make your Thanksgiving meal a little more authentic this year? Eat like a pilgrim with this handy guide to traditional Thanksgiving food.
Roasting the Turkey
If you’re in charge of cooking, extra pressure’s on to prepare the centerpiece of the holiday meal: the turkey. How the turkey turns out can make or break your holiday gathering. Everyone’s counting on moist, tender meat; crispy, brown skin; and flavorful, fluffy stuffing.
But if you’ve never roasted a turkey before, where do you start? How big of a bird do you buy? How do you prep and season it? And what on earth do you do with those giblets?
Don’t panic, this guide will help you. It’s got you covered with step-by-step instructions on how to portion, defrost, prep, and roast your turkey. The only thing that’s left is carving up the bird (for which, the New York Times offers a great video demonstration).
Setting the Table
Time to set the table! If you’re hosting Thanksgiving at your home this year, make sure you know how to properly set the table and essential table etiquette to ensure a smooth Thanksgiving meal. Choose from a basic setting, or step it up a notch and be fancy. Add a personal flare by creatively folding napkins in a festive way.
Leftovers? Waste not!
Happy Thanksgiving! 🍠🦃

Very helpful. Thanks for sharing
Thank you for passing by 💚
I love your website and infographics. They are fun and inspiring. However I see that you eat meat and dairy products and you are concerned about the environment. It’s the meat and dairy industry that is the biggest cause of climate change, deforestation and animal cruelty. I’m not judging you for eating meat but I just want to know how you justify this being ecological and sustainable.
Thank you for reading the blog and your comment. I’m concerned about the environment and I try to do my best to live according to what I predict: taking care of my body and the planet.
I don’t eat meat on a regular basis. I am not vegan and I can’t say I’m 100% vegetarian either since I eat fish and chicken at least once a month. When I do, I try to buy sustainable (bio, free land, organic, local and fished-lined not farmed) chicken, dairy products or fish. I’m not saying this is ideal, but so far is what I’m up to.
I am a very slim person and before being concerned, or aware, of the environment I didn’t eat much meat already in my childhood and have tried to be put on diet to actually gain weight, my metabolism and genes are just this way but my immune system is not the strongest, ever. So in this concern, I’m not a very disciplined person regarding my diet, I try but I don’t actually eat many grains which can be my protein intake, that’s my justification to eat only dairy (cheese and eggs), chicken or fish. I never liked red meat too much anyway, but I used to be a hardcore lover of milk, until I started making my own oats drink.
You are totally right, if I would be as concerned as I show I am I would go 100% vegan, though in my personal life I think I do but compared to others I might not.
Another reason, this is not personal, is that I tried to create this page as resource bank for people (like me) who are slowly transitioning or are completely new to this. So everything takes baby little steps to achieve something great. This is why also many of the recipes, infographics and ideas I share here are “for beginners” let’s say it that way.
I hope this clears out your question, may not be the best answer though, but I appreciate you have taken the time to write and also for your concern! I try to live more consciously and ethically, I hope I can achieve it someday! 🙂
Have a nice day! 💚
