Thanksgiving is just about one week away, so in the continued effort to get you excited about the high holiday of foodstuffs, I present this article from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel on Wisconsin foods that may make a special guest appearance on the table next Thursday.
Now I tend to be a traditionalist when it comes to Thanksgiving meals. I even shutter at the thought of some folks choosing ham over turkey. I find that a strange part of myself considering I'll eat ham the other 364 days of the year, so what the difference on day #365 is I can't explain.
Much like some of these other suggestions from the story for Thanksgiving Day I'd have no problem munching on any other day of the calendar year, like smoked fish, venison, wild mushrooms or popcorn.
Not exactly the traditional mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy that will likely make its way into your belly, but definitely some "out of left field" suggestions that I wouldn't mind having.
Plus it brings a native Wisconsin perspective to your table, since these foods are grown locally around the Badger State.
