Favorite Thanksgiving Foods

Posted by at 10:34 am in About Us | Permalink

Pie Consume, inhale, gobble, wolf, chomp, devour, gorge, dine, munch. . . the list of words to describe eating goes on and on. And Thanksgiving is here, so get ready to salivate because I’m about to reveal my favorite Thanksgiving foods.

(Warning: Do not read this on an empty stomach.)

Food #1: Honey Butter Rolls
I can just smell the aroma now; that buttery scent sifting through the kitchen initiates the urge to start the feast otherwise known as the “Yum Yum” fest at my house.

Food #2: Herb-Infused Turkey
Ever since moving to New York, I haven’t been able to make it home for Thanksgiving as much as I’d like to, which I must say completely stinks. Besides not being able to see my family, I also miss my mom’s famous Thanksgiving Day turkey. Rather than just throwing some salt and pepper on the turkey and sticking it in the oven for four hours, my mom’s method combines innovation and culinary excellence. She infuses her own mix of juices and herbs into the turkey with this really cool turkey injector. This result is a delectable moist and juicy turkey. Plus she leaves the skin on, which is irresistible!

Food #3: Fruit Compote
While most people have the traditional cranberry sauce with their dinners, my family puts our own twist on the conventional dish. In addition to fresh cranberries, our side dish also includes baked apricots, roasted pecans, and caramelized pears. I’m guessing one tablespoon is probably around five hundred calories, but oh well.

Food #4: Dessert!
Honestly, does it really matter what kind of dessert it is? Though my family isn’t a huge fan of pie, we certainly make up for it with chocolate chip cookies, an apple crisp, boxes of chocolates, and homemade biscotti.

After all those delicious foods, I’m really surprised we can even get out of our chairs without toppling over! And what’s even more shocking is the fact that the next day, we eat leftovers!

Needless to say, Thanksgiving rocks! Have a happy holiday.

      It’s not a book!!!
      It’s some sort of scholastic-staff-only blog and we can only write comments.
      Wait, is that actually true???
      I hope so!!

    My favorite foods are
    1. Mashed Potatoes- they’re SO good! Me and my brother always argue over who gets the last bits.
    2. noodles- a family recipe. they take a long time to make, but it’s worth it!
    3. Turkey- thanksgiving isn’t thanksgiving without a turkey (even though there wasn’t one at the first dinner)
    4. stuffing- a little lower down on the list, but still yummy!
    Can’t wait to eat today. Oh, I’m hungry just thinking about it!!!!!
