Thanksgiving Food Facts

Thanksgiving Dinner
  
 Historians say that no turkey was served at the first Thanksgiving! What was on the menu? Deer or venison, ducks, geese, oysters, lobster, eel and fish. They probably ate pumpkins, but no pumpkin pies. They also didn't eat mashed potatoes or cranberry relish, but they probably ate cranberries.


 In 1953, Swanson had so much extra turkey (260 tons) that a salesman told them they should package it onto aluminum trays with other sides like sweet potatoes - and the first TV dinner was born!


Americans eat 46 million turkeys each Thanksgiving.


No forks at the first Thanksgiving! The first Thanksgiving was eaten with spoons and knives - but no forks! That's right, forks weren't even introduced to the Pilgrims until 10 years later and weren't a popular utensil until the 18th century.

Turkey w Fork

  •  Each year, the president of the U.S pardons a turkey and spares it from being eaten for Thanksgiving dinner. The first turkey pardon ceremony started with President Truman in 1947. President Obama pardoned a 45-pound turkey named Courage, who has flown to Disneyland and served as Grand Marshal of the park's Thanksgiving Day parade!

     
    The average American eats approximately 126 pounds of potatoes each year.

    Turkey isn't responsible for drowsiness or the dreaded "food coma." So what is? Scientists say that extra glass of wine, the high-calorie meal or relaxing after a busy work schedule is what makes you drowsy!


    The world's largest pumpkin pie weighed over 350 pounds and was made with 80 pounds of pumpkin, 36 pounds of sugar, and 144 eggs.

    "The night went very smoothly. Nate was wonderful. He made sure everything was set up just right for us. He made the presentation look amazing. That made everything easy. 

    The guests on Saturday had only good things to say about the decorations. The food was delicious! People were going up for seconds and asking where everything came from.

    Thank you, again, to you and your staff. Everything went smoothly. Can't wait to have y'all cater for us again."
