Thanksgiving Foods


Natalie Hornbaker, Staff Writer

There is a lot to love about Thanksgiving — mostly family and amazing food — but just like most things, there are dishes for Thanksgiving meals that are superior to others.

On Thanksgiving you can’t go wrong with traditional. Nothing beats the classic meals and recipes that make up a traditional feast. Dinner rolls can be a throwaway or the first thing to disappear from the table. The turkey could be dry and bland, or moist with well-seasoned, crispy skin. Stuffing is sometimes too much, and other times not enough. Dishes like mashed potatoes and pie are harder to ruin, though in the right hands it can be done. Still, everyone looks forward to this day and how much weight they are gonna gain by the end of the night.
