    I would have to say my favorites are Eggnog Pie, grandma's rolls, broccoli cheese casserole, and sweet potato casserole.


    As for traditions, it is always nice to be asked what I would like to have at the meal.

    My mom always made a really tasty spinach quiche for Thanksgiving, that has become part of the tradition, in our house. So, for me, spinach is very tied to the holiday.

    There are only two traditional Thanksgiving foods I like. Turkey and bread with a little butter everything else is gross imo.

    That's sad. There are a lot of good side dishes to turkey or ham. Greenbean casserole is great too.

    Good old mashed potatoes and gravy are always a good option. Sweet potato casserole is pretty bomb, too.

    Turkey bologna sandwich, cheese curls casserole, and Hostess fruit pie. Sadly, it won't feel like Thanksgiving without Hostess. Fortunately the tradition of family fistfights will surely carry on.

    Can we all agree that people that try and get cute with their stuffing/dressing recipes on Thanksgiving are the worst?

    Stuffing and green bean casserole. And for the record, I don't even like Turkey. But, I eat it because I feel obligated since its Thanksgiving.
