Thanksgiving DinnerWhat comes to your mind when you think Thanksgiving- how you’re going to eat your body weight in mashed potatoes? Dreaded talk with the family about where you are in your life? A competitive neighborhood game of football? Being thankful? Whatever it may be, think for a second, what if turkey was not the staple of the meal.

Sweet potatoes with brown sugar and warm marshmallows, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole with perfectly crisp french onions, warm buttery rolls, turkey and ham, cranberry sauce, and a plethora of sweets fulfilling your inner sugar cravings. Now this is what a Thanksgiving feast may often look like, give or take a few things.

Can we think for another second, how would we live off a weeks’ worth of Thanksgiving leftovers without a refrigerator? I’ll tell you, you could say goodbye to turkey and ham sandwiches for lunch. No more getting out all of the containers and dumping spoonful’s on your plate to re-heat and plopping yourself on the couch. What would we have to look forward too after thanksgiving?

In 1966, two-layered pumpkin-mince pie was the main dish. Not turkey? But don’t worry, green bean casserole made the menu, all thanks for Dorcas Reilly, Campbell Soup employee. *thankful* Other dishes included: celery hearts, ripe and green olives, cranberry-pear relish, and clear mushroom soup.

Gelatin dishes were served as desserts. Fun fact- home refrigerators were very pricey at the time so if you owned one, that really showed off your status. I don’t know about you all, but I am not mad about gelatin desserts disappearing. Pumpkin pie and pecan pie hold a special place in my stomach. So there you have it, a little history lesson, feel free to use for a conversation starter at the dinner table.

Here at North Bridge Staffing we just want to wish everyone a HAPPY & SAFE THANKSGIVING! We are thankful for each and every one of you.

If you are looking for a new opportunity or to fill a position, we would love to help you. Cheers!!
