Writer's Block: Eat, Drink, Be Merry

Thanksgiving is almost here in the U.S., heralding the start of the holiday season and the first of many meals where you might be confronted with a traditional dish that you happen to find disgusting. What holiday food do you hate to see on the table?

  • Canned cranberry sauce is a travesty. If I make can the recipe on the back, so can you.

  • I also don't understand putting marshmallows on sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes are just fine with some butter and brown sugar.

  • I also could live without the green bean casserole. Overcooked green beans with deep fried onions. Pass.

    There's no need for me to answer this when your responses match mine :D we'd do just fine at the table together! All three of those things are travesties.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Agreed. My cranberry sauce recipe involves pineapple juice, pine nuts, pineapple bits, cloves, and a touch of brandy. Sometimes I add fennel or ginger or cardamom for extra kick!

    Oh, but the canned stuff is so much better than homemade! Don't take my canned stuff away... ;)

    But of course I agree wholeheartedly about the marshmallows and greenbean casserole (which has never, to the best of my knowledge, appeared on our family's thanksgiving table).

    I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. (Even if you are deprived of the canned red stuff :)

    Green bean casserole is disgusting, of course. As is anything that has a mushroom soup base.

    It's like the Hoosier State Food, though...if they could deep fry it, half the state would immediately die of pure bliss.

    Actually, I agree with all three of your choices.
