Just put the turkey in. Did most of the other prep over the past few days so nothing much else to do but torment myself with the smell of cooking bird meat for the next several hours.

Put my turkey in a little under an hour ago.

So, under the skin on the breast I have stuffed a mixture of butter, garlic, various seasonings, and left over wild rice mix. The idea is for the rice to flavor and insulate the breast meat whilst allowing the rest of the bird to cook to full temperature. I put what little left over rice remained into the cavity just for fun, but I am not filling that with stuffing as it makes the bird take longer to cook.

I’m also cooking homemade stuffing using oven dried sourdough bread, it smells delicious already, just gotta wait for the bird to finish before cooking the stuffing in a casserole dish.

Mmmmmmm, turkey starting to smell good.

Convenience, I think. Wild turkey’s were pretty common here in the past, and they’re often big enough to feed multiple people so it lends its self easily to a big meal on some occasion.

American folklore says that the natives welcomed the immigrants by throwing them a feast using local produce.

Thanksgiving is a celebration of that lore, so modern Thanksgiving dinner features turkeys and squashes that were common to locals but exotic to the foreigners.
