On Turkey

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.   Tradition calls for a meal of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and sides that vary by culture and region.  For my family, other dishes and sides typically include macaroni and cheese, baked ham, rolls, collard greens, cabbage, green beans, and sweet potatoes.  And that meal is sometimes repeated just a month later at Christmas.

But what if you weren’t bound by tradition at Thanksgiving?  What if you could have whatever you wanted?  Would you still go with the traditional meal or would you have something else?  What would you eat?

    Well…in my family we have a non-traditional meal of sorts. In lieu of turkey (which no one seems to eat, with the exception of the yearly “wing fight”) we have at our center a huge Rockfish that we stuff with a dressing which consists of a stuffing with scallops, shrimp and crab meat. We have veggies such as asparagus to complement the fish.

    At my dad’s house we have a surf’n’turf style dinner with lobster, crabcakes, shrimp, filet mignon, etc.
