Happy Thanksgiving to All of You Goats

Thank Goodness Turkeys are Preferred Over Goats!

There was a time, not long ago, that goats were the special invited culinary guests to the Thanksgiving feast. Everyone knows about ham and turkey complimented with dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy. Pumpkin pie and lots of sweets. In the late 1600's the Plymouth colonists celebrated the Thanksgiving, and were gobbling up many more foods than just turkey. Lobster, goose, duck, seal, eel, and cod were plentiful during this time, these foods were  the main courses of this early feasts. Deer meat and wild goat were also plentiful and were on the menu of this autumn celebration.
