    Re: Favorite Thanksgiving Foods or Traditions

    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.

    in before real men don't eat quiche....

    By the way I love quiche. Not sure why a real man wouldn't enjoy quiche.

    I convinced my family to do steaks one year and brisket another. It was a nice change of pace that everyone enjoyed.

    My husband and I hosted Thanksgiving once and got turkey and brisket from Battle's - nobody else but us was a fan, for some reason.

    I like to think outside the box on Thanksgiving. Mix up the meat.

    I don't think that qualifies as cute stuffing. My grandma loved chicken livers though....

    Re: Favorite Thanksgiving Foods or Traditions

    Well, depending on the year, husband and I have 1-4 Thanksgivings to go to. This year is 2. Each one has their own 2-3 things I can't miss.

    Maultaschen, stuffing, green bean casserole, creamed corn, sweet potatoes, homemade rolls, my MIL's apple crisp and homemade cheesecake, black raspberry pie, pink fluff salad, strawberry pretzel salad.
