It's time for that traditional Thanksgiving turkey.
Here in Virginia, the continuing controversary about serving turkey for Thanksgiving is hot and heavy with no end in site.
Purests point to the fact that ham is the historically correct entree for a southern Thanksgiving. Our fore fathers and fore mothers would not have served turkey. Turkey, they say, is northern fare.
Whether it is or whether it isn't, turkey is still wonderful eating at Thanksgiving.
At our house, we give a nod to our southern heritage by serving ham but we serve turkey, too. You just can not have too many good things to eat at Thanksgiving!
