Thanksgiving Wishbone Rules

I would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. This is probably one of my favorite meals during the year as I really enjoy the gathering of friends and family over a roasted turkey with an abundance of some of the year’s best side dishes. I would also use this opportunity to post the rules for those interested in engaging in the traditional wishbone pull between two willing participants. Once the turkey has been carved, remove the wishbone and pick the bone clean of any meat. This wishbone will then serve as entertainment before or after the supper.

The rules are as follows:

1. Each person holds a side of the wishbone.

2. Eyes are then closed and a wish should be made.

3. Count down out loud……”3…2…1”.

4. Pull on wishbone.

5. The participant with the larger bone will be rewarded with a wish come true (at least he or she hopes!)

For those that are still scrambling for a good turkey bread stuffing recipe, feel free to try my nadivka recipe I posted previously. The recipe produces a very moist rich stuffing and can be altered slightly with the addition of fresh mushrooms or sage sausage.
