An Untraditional Feast

“Thanksgiving for our family consisted of everybody getting together—aunts, uncles and cousins—for a less-than-traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We did get to the turkey eventually, but that was not the ‘star’ of the day. We had all the great Italian dishes, from soup, salad and ravioli to meatballs, lasagna and roasted potatoes. Mama had a player piano, and the day would end with everybody gathered around the ‘pianola’ singing all the songs that were popular.”
