The Best Thanksgiving food

The+Best+Thanksgiving+food

As the leaves begin to fall and costumes get stored away everyone’s favorite family feast begins to roll around. Thanksgiving is a holiday about sharing and being grateful. The holiday honors tradition and a part of that is food. There are so many foods people look forward to each year that bring families together. Different families have different foods they bring to the table but every year the same discourse occurs: What are the best Thanksgiving foods?

Starting off with the most traditional plate at the table, turkey. Families have been eating turkey every November for centuries. It makes the main centerpiece for this grand meal and is easily shareable for families. What truly makes a Thanksgiving meal though is the sides that come with it. Sides are typically brought by the guests as a contribution to the meal whereas the Turkey is made by the host. Sophia Fajardo, a senior, enjoys the mac and cheese her family makes the most. Usually mac and cheese on Thanksgiving is different from your regular bowl, it’s better. Everyone has a different recipe, but it is always homemade. Another Student, Kyle Derosier, says his favorite Thanksgiving dish is Stuffing. He explains that, “it is exciting because it is the one part of the meal every year that is always different”. Stuffing can be made with so many different techniques and ingredients it is what makes it so unique.

Nothing says fall like cranberries. A side of cranberry sauce brings the perfect mix of sweet and tart to your family’s meal. Speaking of sweets, special desserts like pie add a perfect taste for the end of the meal. Thanksgiving pies include classic’s such as pumpkin and apple, along with pecan and cherry pie. A slice of pie with a choice of whipped cream or ice cream is the perfect way to end the filling holiday.
