Turkey And THE THANKSGIVING dinner is pretty much traditional—turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes (with variety in the vegetables, maybe candied sweet potatoes and cabbage salad), pickles, jelly, hot rolls and pumpkin pie. Families vary in their preference for the stuffing —seasoned with onion or herbs, with chestnuts or oysters, dry or moist. The preparation of "the bird" is usually the rite of the mother in the household and she takes great pride in selecting the fowl so that it will be just right, whether it be from the shop or her own flock. It L prepared and the dressing made from a recipe which has probably been handed down from mother to daughter.
