You know I’m not a fan of Thanksgiving food. I don’t like roast turkey, stuffing, squash, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie or mincemeat pie. That’s why I host my family that holiday! I tell them they are welcome to come but they’re not getting any of the traditional food. I always make lasagna, garlic bread and ice cream cake. I do put ground turkey in my lasagna so that is my tip of the hat to Thanksgiving. And my mom usually brings green bean casserole (which I love!). I figure if I’m going to have leftovers after the meal it ought to be something I’ll actually eat.
But most people love all the Thanksgiving food! When I tell people I don’t like any of it they usually look at me like I have 2 heads. My friends are used to it now. They just shake their heads and laugh. That’s ok! I don’t mind! There was a survey just recently that asked people what their most hated Thanksgiving food is and I thought the results were a little surprising.
The #1 most hated food is cranberry sauce. That was the winner by a lot! Coming in at #2 was green bean casserole! That one surprised me because, like I said, I love green bean casserole and can’t image Thanksgiving without it. But I have found that green bean casserole is more of a midwest dish. Rounding out the top #3 most hated Thanksgiving foods is sweet potatoes. That also surprised me because most people I talk to LOVE sweet potatoes. I just figured I was the odd person out when it came to them. But apparently more people don’t like them.
