Roast Turkey with Oyster Stuffing and Giblet Gravy & more: A 1974 Thanksgiving menu! -- Vintage Thanksgiving Throwback Thursday

Earlier this year we took a look at Elizabeth Baird's excellent  1974 cookbook, Classic Canadian Cooking: Menus for the Seasons.

As the title implies, the cookbook is based around a series of seasonal full menus that give a complete meal from appetizers, salads and soups through the main course to the dessert.

As part of our lead-up to the Thanksgiving holiday -- much beloved by so many not only for the gatherings of friends and families but also for the food -- we return to this cookbook to look at her Thanksgiving menu.

And what a menu it is with roast turkey with oyster stuffing and giblet gravy, turnip souffle, cranberry sauce and a pumpkin pie recipe (of course) and more.

Watch for posts later today and this week with more Thanksgiving ideas.
