Favorite Thanksgiving Dish

November 17, 2012

The cranberry sauce gives me wild heartburn, but it’s definitely toward the top as one of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes.  Then there’s the turkey. The dark meat is preferred since someone has a tendency to overcook leaving the white meat too dry.  And the dressing.  And the mashed potatoes.  And the pie. Ohhhhh the pie. Pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie, chess pie… ***salivate*** What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dish, LaVergne?  Do you go for the desserts, the sweet potatoes, oyster stuffing?  Or do you like the casseroles and breads?

(CORRECTION!)  SUNDAY, November 4 from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., the LaVergne Rescue Unit is having a chicken lunch as a way to raise money for the organization. Of course the Rescue folks are famous for their country ham breakfasts, but it looks like they’re dipping their honey mustard into a new feeding venture. And we like it!  The cost is $8 and the…
