A week away

With Thanksgiving less than a week away and the effective end of the Autumn food season on the horizon, students are returning home for their annual Thanksgiving breaks. As someone who isn’t terribly fond of the holiday diet, I ask what are your favorite foods for Thanksgiving?

A Rasmussen Report conducted in 2005 indicated that roughly 81 percent of families dine of turkey as the main course for their meal, with ham following at eight percent, and any other meal at  seven percent. Several other online polls conducted by Baldwin City and Yahoo indicated that most online users, however, favor stuffing to the main turkey, to which I vehemently disagree.

When given the option of either turkey or stuffing (keeping in mind that we’re talking about the giant whole turkey that takes hours to prepare), turkey should always come out on top. Look, stuffing is simple. Stove Top simple. Turkey has to be made carefully and is much less available (not talking about deli meat). Plus, for a lot of families, this is the only time of the year when a large turkey is eaten.

So for those of you who opt for the other table options next Thursday – shove it.
