My Story World characters, who live on the frontier of Virginia in the 18th century might have a pretty good Thanksgiving feast.
Sarah and Suzanne would likely serve up:
-Root vegetables, possibly roasted, seasoned with salt and rosemary
-Squash/pumpkin with molasses, ginger and cloves, baked like a casserole with some milk and eggs beat into it
-Roasted venison, smoked and baked ham with honey
-Journey cake baked with cornmeal
-Suzanne, who is French, would make an apple pastry with a flaky crust
-Johan, German, would ask for sausages
-William, Indian/French/English wants succotash
Sarah, who has very poor vision and has mostly lived on the frontier, just wants her ten brothers to do all the carrying and cleaning up and could care less what will be served as long as she can sit down and enjoy it! Hmm, I guess I relate most to her!
