Thanksgiving is Coming!
according to wikipedia is a revival of an 18th century source of cooking stress. As early as my sophomore year at Vassar, there was a hallmate who came back from Thanksgiving break saying in disdain, turkey is common. The real treats at the Thanksgiving table are stuffing, mincemeat pie and candied yams. By golly, I guess she's probably right (although I wonder how much Stovetop Stuffing gets bought and made at non-Thanksgiving dinners). But, the turkey will always be the symbol of Thanksgiving.
