This weekend (well Monday if you want to be exact) is Canadian Thanksgiving and I love this holiday. I’m going home to see the family and going to stuff my face with tons of yummy goodies. I can’t wait.
For today’s post I have gathered up vintage ads with helpful tips and ideas on how to have the “perfect” Thanksgiving dinner. I have used the word “Perfect” in quotes because I’m not sure if that is actually possible for any sort of dinner BUT lets give it a try anyways.
Lets start off with a 1956 Thanksgiving Dinner Menu idea.
Foil Roasted Turkey will ensure you have the perfect turkey every time.
Note: I can’t be positive on this as I don’t cook but the ad sure makes it look like it does.
I think that a “Guaranteed” Turkey means that your dinner will be…”Perfect”.
Stuffing…Mandatory, and this ad gives you many different kinds to try (not sure how I feel about “Oyster Stuffing” though).
Did you purchase too many Cranberries? Well don’t fret Ocean Spray has you covered.
Kids can help as well with the trimmings for Thanksgiving.
Of course Coca Cola must be served at dinner. No recipe needed for this task.
Maybe your more in the mood for a beer because “Beer Belongs”.
Whisky also has a place at the Thanksgiving table.
Traditional Pumpkin Pie.
Non-Traditional Pumpkin Pie -Coconut Pumpkin Chiffon Pie! My stomach just growled while looking at this.
Not a pumpkin pie fan? Don’t fret here are a couple of other dessert ideas for the table.
Did you say marshmallows? I’m in!
Really really can’t cook? Well Swifts Premium will save the dinner!
Or you can enjoy a good old TV Dinner that involves even less work.
And of course we have to have ideas on what to do with the leftovers.
Happy Thanksgiving Friends! And if you are using a vintage recipe for your festivities I would love to hear what it is.
