The Butcher's Guide - 2013 Thanksgiving

October 31, 2013  |  By  | 


The entire room is filled with warmth from the oven and familiar scents of the holiday. The smell of roasting turkey, fresh baked rolls and cooling pumpkin pie take over the kitchen. Construction paper turkeys line the refrigerator and the football fans in the group have settled into their seats. With all of the activity around Thanksgiving, it somehow maintains a sense of simplicity. No gifts, no lavish decorations, just a feast, designed to bring us together. It’s been said many times that food brings people together. This can be seen from the very first Thanksgiving in 1621, when the Pilgrims and Puritans brought over traditions from England and celebrated their successful harvest. They shared their harvest and feasted, all while remembering to say thanks for the bountiful crops that season. For us, our house and celebration is made up of an ever-growing family. From loyal customers, to the local vendors, to our teams across the country committed to being your local butcher and grocer, we have a lot to be thankful for. This Thanksgiving we give thanks and share with you some of our favorite recipes from our stores in the heart of New England, down to sunny Florida and a few in between. From our stores to your kitchen, we hope you enjoy.
