THE PILGRIMS HAD IT ALL WRONG

Nothing against the obligatory turkey dinner on Thanksgiving day, but this year we decided to break away from tradition and do it the way we had hoped the Pilgrims would have done it.  It's not like crab legs, lobster tails, and scallops were not available in 1621 near Plymouth Plantation.  Instead of giving thanks for the harvest, we decided to celebrate by giving thanks for the nautical harvest. 

Here is the table my sister prepared here in Ft. Myers, Florida.  I have to say after many cold Ohio Thanksgivings, this was a welcome treat!  Here is her table with Neptunes' bounty.  It was a delicious way to spend Thanksgiving!




I guess no matter where you spend Thanksgiving, and no matter what you serve for a meal, the end result is the same!

Good point - it probably was a big lobster fest.
