Thanksgiving’s roots go back to November 1621, when a group of pilgrims wanting to celebrate their first successful harvest invited a few friendly Native Americans to a three-day feast.
Their feast they had probably looked very different than what we serve today. According to History.com, the pilgrims had very little sugar left from their voyage so cakes, pies, and desserts were probably void from their menu. More than likely, they feasted on deer provided by their Native American guests rather than turkey. And I’m pretty sure they didn’t have the pleasure of a Green Bean Casserole topped with fried onion rings!
