On the nation’s menu: 736 million pounds of turkey, 30 million green bean casseroles

- The Washington Times

It is a number that would even give frantic political pollsters pause. Americans will enjoy 46 million turkeys on Thanksgiving Day. And it’s no wonder. Almost nine-out-of 10 Americans - 88 percent - tuck into a plate of turkey on the big day, and they put away an estimated 736 million pounds of it according to the National Turkey Federation, a trade association. Two thirds of Americans say eating leftovers is the best part of the meal. On Thursday, Americans will also help themselves to 30 million green bean casseroles.
