The day is finally here, we gather around the table to partake in Thanksgiving dinner (or lunch or brunch depending on whatever you do). I'm a very simple person, I don't ask for much, but I don't have a laundry list of demands for Thanksgiving other than a bowl of gumbo and a moist turkey. But I'm open to try other things, BUT the following items on this list you can keep to yourself, I don't WANT IT. You can agree with me or you can disagree with me, that's fine, but if you invite me over for your Thanksgiving dinner, don't be shocked if I respectfully decline your offers of the following:
There's only one correct way to prepare and eat chitterlings.
1. Pull them out of the container
2. Throw them directly into the nearest trash can.
Green Bean Casserole
I can deal with green beans actually, by themselves, but who thought it was a great idea to put this in casserole form? Betty Crocker? I blame you.
Black Eyed Peas
Save for these for New Year's Eve or New Year's Day, not for Thanksgiving. Please!
From what I've been told, many folks say that this is one of their favorite parts of Thanksgiving. I beg to differ, what does one do with this stuff? If you are pouring this on your turkey then guess what, YOUR TURKEY WASN'T THAT GOOD TO BEGIN WITH!
Sweet Potato Anything
Casserole, pie, cake, yams, french fries, WHATEVER. Don't want it. I don't believe sweet potatoes are really even "sweet" are they?
