Since the very first Thanksgiving was enjoyed for three days total in 1621, this holiday has changed not only our eating habits but also our spending habits each November. Oh, and while we’re discussing ‘shopping habits,’ Happy Black Friday, folks!
By the way, did you know that the term for a baby turkey is ‘poults.’ How cute is that? What’s that? Cute little baby turkeys are aside from the point of this blog post? Wow, what a great point you make. Still, baby turkeys are cute. Gobble, gobble.
Oh, and to that end, did you know that not all turkeys gobble?
In fact, only male turkeys gobble!
Oh, and to that end, here’s something hilarious you may not have known about Thanksgiving:
There is no historical evidence to suggest that any turkey at all was consumed on the first Thanksgiving. How bizarre!

Hostwinds Family Thanksgiving Recipes
Vivian’s Thanksgiving Waldorf Salad:
- 4 diced apples (granny and gala is a good mixture)
- 2 oranges cut into bite size
- 1 can or jar mandarin oranges
- 1 pound grapes cut in half
- 16 oz strawberries
- 4-8 oz chopped walnuts
- 2 tubs cool whip
Mix ingredients into a large bowl and refrigerate overnight.
Gus’ Meat & Nut Dressing:
- 5 strips thick-cut bacon
- 2 lb ground beef (90-95% lean)
- 1 cup dried prunes (sliced)
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds
- 1/8 cup minced green olives
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/3 cup Turkey drippings
- 2 Tbsp orange juice
Cut the bacon into 2 inch long pieces and cook them in a large pot (ideally nonstick) until the fat has fully rendered from the bacon.
Set the heat to medium-high and add in the ground beef, using a wooden spoon to break up the beef and mix it in with the bacon and bacon fat.
Once the beef has browned, set the heat to medium and add in the diced nuts, stirring occasionally over the next 5-10 minutes.
Mix in the dried prunes and allow to simmer stirring until the beef has darkened from the prunes.
Reduce the heat to low, stir in the green olives, and lid the pot, letting it sit for roughly 5 minutes.
Optional: Mix in the turkey drippings and orange juice, stirring frequently until fully combined. Let simmer for another 5 minutes, string occasionally to prevent burning.
Give the mixture a few stirs, add salt and pepper to taste, and serve warm topped with turkey gravy.
Kyle’s Parsley Salad:
- 2 bunches of parsley (only leaves, no stems)
- 1 lemon
- Olive oil
Separate parsley leaves from stems, and put all leaves into a large bowl.
Juice entire lemon, and mix lemon juice into the bowl containing the parsley leaves.
Add two teaspoons of olive oil into the bowl and mix.
Add salt to taste and mix.
Now that you have stocked up on holiday recipes, let’s add a couple more Thanksgiving insights to your basket!
Happy Belated Thanksgiving From the Hostwinds Family
Did you know that the song “Jingle Bells” was originally intended to be a Thanksgiving song, but somehow morphed into a December holiday song overtime? People liked playing the song around December for some reason, and slowly, the metamorphosis began.
Another silly thing to know about this Black Friday/Thanksgiving season:
Plumbers statistically have the most service requests the day after Thanksgiving every single year. That makes a lot of sense, actually 😃.
A silly thing to know about this blog post:
This post contains exactly 13 exclamation points, and every one of them seems appropriate!
