Thanksgiving is one of those holidays where you can eat way too much, visit with relatives way too much, and need to chill even more. We can't wait to do this and while we are doing it we can't wait to be done with it. Yet, in the end, we learn to be thankful for it all.

CREATION OF THE FIRST TV DINNER.
In 1953, someone at Swanson severely overestimated the amount of turkey Americans would consume that Thanksgiving. With 260 tons of frozen birds to get rid of, a company salesman named Gerry Thomas ordered 5,000 aluminum trays, recruited an assembly line of women armed with spatulas and ice-cream scoops and began creating mini-feasts of turkey, corn-bread dressing, peas and sweet potatoes. This marked the creation of the first-ever TV dinner. Thomas later said he got the idea from neatly packaged airplane food.

FROM THE ASPCA
If you decide to feed your pet a little nibble of turkey, make sure it’s boneless and well-cooked. Don't offer her raw or undercooked turkey, which may contain salmonella bacteria.
