Thanksgiving... Victorian-Era Hotel Style

Happy Monday! I thought it would be fun to go back in time and visit some 19th century Thanksgiving menus this week. My, how times have changed.

I just love this 1886 Thanksgiving menu from the Hotel Drake in Chicago. Don't know what half of the dishes are, but, nonetheless... Bon Appetit!

Wonder how many species have gone extinct since then...

Do you realize how much this would cost in today's economy? But half of the meat is endangered, or totally not appealing..or even healthy!

Tofurkey for all!
