The celebration of Thanksgiving is shrouded in a lot of myths and emotional baggage, but there is always something to be grateful for.
One thing I’m grateful for is that Thanksgiving’s signature entrée didn’t end up being eel.
People assure me that eel is delicious, particularly as a sushi component, but … I just can’t stomach the idea of it, because when I first read about eel being served at the first Thanksgiving, for some reason I got an immediate mental image of a dish served up like modern canned cranberry sauce.
The things I’m grateful for just get exponentially more important after that.
