The Worst Thanksgiving Dish I have Ever Had
Really - if anyone is cooking for me, I generally appreciate it. Most thanksgiving dinners I've ever eaten, have been cooked by someone else. It's going to be hard to pick a worst, because I like other people's cooking. A lot.
Some of MY OWN cooking that I haven't really appreciated have been boxed dressing. Gag a maggot. I hate the taste and the smell of dressing. I think it's the sage. I once found a box of corn bread dressing - oh heaven's to Betsy- I love me some corn bread - but it smelled and tasted just like sagey dressing - yuck. In the bird, out of the bird, it's all the same. Yuck. So... sorry - if I offended anyone. It's not you - it's me. I'm picky. Especially when it comes to sage, apparently.
I look forward to Thanksgiving every year - I must say. It's the one holiday where I get to be with extended family. I love my extended family. Mom, Dad, Sisters, Brother-in-laws, nieces, nephews... mostly nieces. My nephews live far far away and don't come to Thanksgiving - but it's the best I can get Thanksgiving. One of my most favorite times of the year. So if I must eat dressing - I will. Over and over again - just to get to be close to my family.
I read this paragraph to my daughter - and she said dressing? You don't like dressing? What kind? Ranch? I thought... hmm... why am I calling it dressing? What do you call it? STUFFING?! Which is it at your house? They are both the same thing - stuffing get stuffed generally, but we rarely stuff it. What ever you call it - you can have it and mine too. :)
