We all have favorite foods that we have grown to like over the years. Most of my favorite meals occurred when I was a child because my aunt was an excellent cook. The holidays always meant plenty of good food. That is why the Thanksgiving meal has always been my favorite. We usually had either chicken or turkey and stuffing, cranberry sauce, potato salad, greens, candied yams, and fresh hot homemade dinner rolls. Of course there was also the pies and cakes, but I was most often so stuffed from the main courses that they had to wait for later. So, what does your favorite meal consist of?

You must really love pizza, sarah!While I love pizza myself, nothing takes the place of a good home-cooked meal for me.

I would have to say my grandmother made an excellent Thanksgiving meal every year when I was a kid. We had turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and plenty of deserts. She had a huge house and we had a big family so it always was alot of fun. I do have a sister-in-law who is an excellent cook as well. She has Thanksgiving every year and I can't wait. It is just wonderful. We won't be able to go this year. To answer your question, I love the old fashioned turkey dinner with all the sides and deserts.

I am sorry that you won't be able to attend your sister-in-law's famous dinner this year, carolbee, so will you be cooking at home?

This year is going to be a bit different. Our middle daughter is due to have a baby the first of November. Our youngest daughter and her kids are coming in for Thanksgiving and staying with our middle daughter. So, the new Dad to be suggested they have Thanksgiving at their house. It's going to be a hassle with a new baby but that's the plan. Our middle daughter's house is huge so they have plenty of room to entertain. Just hope our daughter feels up to it.

It's so weird that the favourite meal I had is so easy to make and yet it has never tasted as good as the way my granddad used to make it for me. I love liver but it has to be fried with flour to make it crispy and crunchy, well grandad always made it perfect and I always looked forward in visiting him as he would give me my favourite meal and I've never since then ever tasted liver as good as he made it. I will always fondly remember him for that, at the time it seems so basic but to me it was the best meal I've ever had!

I can't believe it, wolfie! Someone other than myself truly likes liver?I wish that I was there to make you a big skillet of fried liver.I prefer mine fried with onions and gravy and served over rice or mashed potatoes. Yum.

noone could cook like my grandmother in my opinion of course. she fried the best chicken & she fried corn. i'd give anything to be able tocook corn like she did but i can't. her chocolate cake w/fudge icing was the best dessert i ever ate. sure do miss he, miss her cooking to.

Ah, AL, I feel much the same way about my great-aunt who raised me. She was a professional cook and no one could cook like she did. People came from near and far just to sample her cooking.

I once had a cousin that I would visit frequently, rustantl, and her pot roast was the best I've ever eaten! Over the years I've tried to duplicate it, but never get the same results.
