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.
