Turkey, Ham or Both for Thanksgiving?
I know the mascot for Thanksgiving is a turkey, but does anyone switch up their Thanksgiving meal a bit?
What's the better Turkey Day meal? Is it actually turkey, or could it be ham? Could it be BOTH?
I've been hearing a lot lately about some people who don't have turkey on Thanksgiving, and it kind of blew my mind. How can you not have turkey on Turkey Day? I've always had turkey for as long as I can remember. I've known nothing else for Thanksgiving. That's the main course. The focal point. The main event. The grand finale.
Now, don't get me wrong: I love me a good ham, but I've pretty much always associated ham with Christmas. A delicious Christmas ham. That's always what I hear, so naturally I'm a little perplexed by the idea that there would be a ham for Thanksgiving. It seems like such a foreign concept, but the more and more I think about it, I think I'd be down for both.
I mean, let's get real. All we want to do on Thanksgiving is fill our faces to their maximum potential. We want those suckers to be packed to the brim with delicious foods and treats. So why not? Why not bring out some turkey AND some ham?
Would anyone really be opposed to it? I say we start a new tradition. Thanksgiving doesn't just belong to the turkeys. Let's share it with the pigs. Happy Ham & Turkey Day!
