Giving Thanks for Thanksgiving

We have greatly enjoyed reading all the blog posts about favorite Thanksgiving foods. Because food may be our favorite topic, this has inspired some enthusiastic discussion, particularly regarding stuffing. One of us likes moist stuffing, while the other prefers the stuffing that overflows out of the turkey and becomes crispy. And oyster stuffing? How did we not know about this at all? Cumulatively, our favorite Thanksgiving foods include appetizers of all sorts, homemade rolls, sweet potatoes, and wine. What are your favorites? Do you have specific requirements for traditional fare, ie, crispy stuffing?

(Above is an unflattering picture of me discovering that I had served myself an enormous portion of mashed turnips thinking they were sweet potatoes- ewwwwww!)

Depending on who you are spending the holiday with, sometimes wine is the most important part of the day!

thanks for calling me out on my love of crispy stuffing, lg! i admit it, my brother and i fight over the crispy stuffing that sticks out of the "butt" of the turkey when he comes out of the oven. it is the only part of the stuffing i like - no time for that other mushy stuff! haha

Crispy stuffing sounds pretty good although anything that's food (preferably green vegetables) sounds good to me.

The reason you never had oyster stuffing is because they've never lasted long enough around here to put in the stuffing!! :)

Don't make the same turnip mistake again this year, mom.

Moist cornbread dressing all the way! Last year I had a tasso, cornbread and crawfish dressing that was awesome!

LG - first of all, i LOVE the pic...very classic lauren (i miss you!) i personally love anything pumpkin this time of year. but i do really like my mom's twice baked potatoes. also, now that i don't get to spend all my holidays at home, i've been exposed to different menus. but no matter what, i just can't get used to the cranberry sauce that comes out of the can, especially when you can still see the ridges...i just don't get it.
