Giving Thanks

Perhaps your last Thanksgiving meal consisted of turkey and stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and other delectable goodies? Not so for the residents of Plymouth Plantation who celebrated their first Thanksgiving feast in 1621. Trinitas fifth graders recently commemorated that Plymouth Plantation Thanksgiving by sampling authentic Pilgrim fare such as wild duck, corn pudding, venison, pumpkin pudding, mussels, and clams. Sorry, Mom—no turkey or pumpkin pie!
