Nov. 26: Day of thankfulness for nearly 30 lbs of turkey annually

Ah, 1996, when I probably wore my biggest-legged pants to Thanksgiving dinner.

And the high point for turkey consumption per U.S. resident: 32.5 lbs/year!

Behold, Thanksgiving foods “availability” per person, a proxy for consumption.

(Hover over a line for details.)

If you’re only managing 0.4 lbs of pecans a year, I am sorry.  I would trade mucho turkey for pecans.
