Thanksgiving Dinner as Planned by Kids
The Corvallis, Ore. Gazette-Times asked fourth and fifth grade students, â€œIs there something youâ€™d rather have for Thanksgiving dinner instead of turkey?â€
Linked here are three sets of published responses, the first being the most thorough.
October 18, 2005: "Instead of turkey for Thanksgiving I would prefer my uncleâ€™s spinach but only my uncleâ€™s. He has a very special ingredient, so special he wonâ€™t even tell me."
November 1, 2005: "Instead of turkey for Thanksgiving dinner I would like spaghetti and garlic bread. I would also like teriyaki ribs because I love those foods! "
November 8, 2005: "Why should people eat turkey for Thanksgiving? Why not fried chicken or smoked salmon? Thatâ€™s what I would eat."
