My Thanksgiving routine usually consists of this:
Wake Up Early
As much as I love Thanksgiving, I actually do not like turkey at all. I don't know why - it's just boring to me, especially when there are so many delicious sides to eat! So I rarely eat turkey on Thanksgiving, maybe one small piece. I do, however, love me some turkey sandwiches the next day! YUM!
Here's what I'm most excited to eat on Thursday:
Sweet Potatoes - I like mine with a few marshmallows on top.Cranberry Sauce, straight from the can! Serve it right to the table with the ridges...delicious!
Mashed Potatoes and Gravy - basically the entire day is just one big carb!
CREAMED ONIONS! Does anyone else eat these on Thanksgiving? I've always grown up eating these every year, but I don't think many people have these on Thanksgiving. Basically they are the small pearl onions in this delicious white cream sauce (super healthy, I'm sure!). My mom ALWAYS makes them and I usually eat the entire bowl...ha! Jake had never eaten them until he came to our house for Thanksgiving a few years ago and now he's hooked too! Anyone else know about these, or is my family just weird?
And now, things my family doesn't eat on Thanksgiving and I HATE!
Sauerkraut! I think this is a German tradition...I hate everything about it - the smell, the taste! Unfortunately, J's family is very German, so I know they will be serving it this year. BLAH!
What foods do you eat every year? Are there certain things that your family eats that you don't think anyone else does (like creamed onions)? Happy Almost Thanksgiving!
