    What is your #1 Thanksgiving food??? Just pick one!

    I love it - and the leftovers! I could eat turkey leftovers for weeks (if they didn't go bad).

    I love stuffing cooked inside the turkey...so, so good. This year my husband and I are cooking the turkey at my parents' house to take to my brother's house so I get to make the stuffing the way I like it. I'm so excited.

    You can have the potatoes, etc. but give me dark meat turkey and stuffing with gravey and I'm a happy camper.


    Makes me hungry!

    Turkey is my favorite - I can't count my MIL's sticky buns, because those aren't just Thanksgiving food. She makes them for every family occasion. Pure Vermont maple syrup and pecans...yummy, I can taste them already (I know, sugar is bad for you, but one day won't kill me!)

    I make these every year! They are a recipe handed down from my German grandmother who, throughout my childhood, hosted the family Thanksgiving dinner at her old farmhouse ! This has always been my favorite!

    The ingredients stuffed in the mushroom caps are: chopped up mushroom stems, garlic, melted butter, parsley & pecans...YUM! You pour cream over the stuffed mushrooms, bake & ....I'm salivating just thinking about them!

    I enjoy the other parts of the meal too, but the mushrooms are the highlight of the Thanksgiving meal for me! (Rated higher than the big bird or pumpkin pie!) Hope everyone enjoys their favorites on Thursday!

    I really love cold turkey on sandwiches the next day, but I guess I'd have to say my favorite would be the stuffing.

    I can't eat the cranberry sauce, because I have diabetes. If I wasn't so lazy, I'd make the sugar free kind, but I'm the only one who will eat it. lol

    My hubby fixes a mean turkey and I like it very well done. I like the white meat only, but my kids like the dark and hubby is a white meat eater too.

    I think we have 3 turkey's in the freezer right now. lol

    Hope you all have a great holiday!

    and I have to agree, I love the stuffing!

    and I love cranberries. And the pecan pie and pumpkin pie with loads of whipped heavy cream - my daughter always whips it - she is a purist as taught by me. Now I would just use Cool Whip but she is enjoying her gourmet years, who am I to deny her that!
    Sorry I just couldn't pick one!

    We heard the recipe on NPR years ago (Susan Stamberg shared it with listeners). It sounds bizarre but tastes delicious. You can still get it online if you do a search.

    I love it. I just hope I am able to eat by then. If not I will just gain several pounds by smelling all of those wonderful smells.

    The day after .... a turkey sandwich! YUM!!! My second favorite is turkey & dressing covered in gravy.
    Maybe this year I can actually eat and enjoy. Last year a major flare shut down my eating on Thanksgiving!

    You're making my mouth water just thinking about it!

    My favorites are mashed potatoes and stuffing!

    Plus pumpkin pie!

    Oh, and then there's cranberry sauce!

    The list could go on and on!

    Happy Turkey Day!

    I always fix my MIL's Pumpkin Chiffon Pie. I never liked pumpkin pie before tasting this one. It's light and delicious. Plus, I've cut down the sugar and its even better --- not so sweet!

    I love green bean cassarole with piles of crispy onions.

    And I have a turkey quirk that everyone makes fun of but always accomodates-- I will only eat the turkey on a sandwich, no matter what. It has to be cheap white bread with lots of mayo and salt and iceburg lettuce.

    It's sweet-- for the last few years, whoever is cooking Thanksgiving dinner makes sure they have my sandwich ingredients.
