FUN FACT #1: TV dinners have the Thanksgiving Holiday to thank. In 1953, someone at Swanson misjudged the number of frozen turkeys it would sell that Thanksgiving -- by 26 TONS! Plan B: Why not slice up the meat and repackage with some trimmings on the side? Thus, the first TV dinner was born!

Safety Guidelines: Ever wonder how many pounds of turkey to buy? When to buy it? How to thaw it? There are three ways to thaw your turkey safely — in the refrigerator, in cold water, or in the microwave oven. Check here for more information from the USDA. 

Aim for places where you can order your meat ahead of time such as Seven Sons to find the highest quality options:

Chicken or Turkey: Pastured Raised, organic
Beef: 100% Grass fed- grass finished
Seafood: Wild Caught, low mercury
Eggs: Pastured Raised, organic
Pork: Pastured Raised, Nitrate free

FUN FACT #2: Gobble, gobble! Not so fast. Only male turkeys, called toms, gobble. Females, called hens, cackle.

*substitute mushrooms with mini peppers or jalapenos if on anti-yeast plan
FUN FACT #3: There were no forks at the first Thanksgiving! The first Thanksgiving was eaten with spoons and knives — but no forks! That's right, forks weren't even introduced to the Pilgrims until 10 years later and weren't a popular utensil until the 18th century.
