  • @kpearse99 I’m with you on that one girl. Bye bye Pumpkin pie. Yuck 🥴🤢 I hate it. That’s an easy one to get rid of lol. 
    kpearse99ziggymama06
  • Yes! Bye bye pumpkin pie!! My next choice might actually be stuffing, but I'm a box stuffing over stuffed in a turkey stuffing kind of gal. I don't like the mushiness being in the turkey!

  • @mvt2003 when I do a baked sweet potato we always do butter and brown sugar 😋 marshmallow might be the next choice in sweet things to top it with lol. But that really only works if it's all baked together right?

    @kpearse99 same! Give me the cranberry sauce in the can! Lol

  • @inthewoods23 Hahaha I'm clearly in the minority opinion here, but I think sweet potatoes are sweet enough without sugar! Don't hate me!!! :D 

    @kpearse99 @inthewoods23 I also am only interested in cranberry sauce in the can. I am a terrible New Englandah!

  • Goodbye to yams, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie... all gross.  Don't touch my stuffing!!  It's the best part!  Hubs and I make our own gf stuffing in the oven and the top gets nice and crispy.  Yumm...

    @meri-mac  Same... never understood the marshmallows either.. Isn't that a dessert then?

  • I love ALL of this on Thanksgiving! Except get rid of the marshmallows on top of the yams—gross! They are sweet enough by themselves, I agree with you @mvt2003 . And give me ALL the cranberry sauce still shaped like the can hahaha @kpearse99
    kpearse99mvt2003meri-macbluetickgal
  • bye bye cranberry sauce! and no marshmallows on the yams! 
  • What do you do with the cranberry sauce? Is it a topping for something or just a side? 
  • @ssbl I generally have like, A slice of turkey and the rest of my plate is sides lol

  • @ssbl Hahahahahaaaa love your sign-off! That was me for years, & I could still definitely do without the turkey as long as all the side dishes are delicious & don’t include marshmallows! 

    @tyrion_ It’s used as a sauce for the turkey—it’s especially important if the turkey turns out on the drier side. It’s like people using mint jelly with lamb or a jam with pork chops. 
    ssblkrystrist2014
  • @kpearse99 haha I loved box stuffing too and the best cranberry sauce is definitely from the can still in its Original shape 😆

  • I could also do without the turkey... my in-laws just dont make a good one. Now if i cooked my own, and it was good, id get rid of the sweet potatoes. I think they are good with marshmallows, but i wouldn't do them on top if i made them.🤷🏼‍♀️

  • The turkey goes first, then the stuffing - I honestly don't like cranberry sauce that much...
    Basically, I will just take pie. #saveroomfordessert

  • Favorite to least: potatoes, pie, cranberry sauce, turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing. If I'm being honest just give me a giant plate of potatoes and a little bit of cranberry sauce for dinner and a big slice of pie (or whole pie) for dessert.
