What did you eat for Thanksgiving?

Mac and cheese is trending on Twitter. Apparently it is a common thing to have for Thanksgiving. I've heard from my African-American students that it is something they always have--along with collard greens of course. It is definitely NOT something that has ever been on my family's holiday table. Today we had dinner at my parents' house. She served: turkey breast, mashed potatoes, stuffing/dressing, green bean casserole, sweet potato souffle, rice, green salad, gravy, cranberry sauce, and rolls. I had a little of everything except for rice, salad, or cranberry sauce. Rice isn't normal for us usually but my mother made it for my nephew. Apparently he refuses to eat or try mashed potatoes. So if you celebrated Thanksgiving today tell us--what was on your table?

Roast turkey(sliced), gravy, candied sweet potatoes, stuffing/dressing, green bean casserole, cabbage salad(Jay's specialty), bread&butter pickles, baby carrots, jellied cranberry sauce, pumpkin/pecan pie Jay requested no mashed potatoes, a reason I don't understand. His mother never served them, I'm guessing

My MIL ( I still call her that even though she isn't any longer) makes the BEST mashed potatoes in the world which is saying something because she is a terrible cook. The recipe came from her mother and she passed it along to me. It is beyond unhealthy with an ungodly amount of fat. I only made them a couple of times per year when I was married. Now that I'm here alone I only make them to bring to Thanksgiving.

@NJChicaa My first mother-in-law was a fantastic cook, whenever she decided to fix a meal. This wasn't very often:( Hotdogs and fried potatoes were a mainstay, most days. I'm not sure about Jay's mother, but his dad was a fantastic cook! Homemade cakes, pies, casseroles, he fixed delicious meals!

Our Thanksgiving table included homemade butternut squash soup, brined turkey, corn casserole, broccoli with cheese sauce, homemade cranberry sauce, candied roast carrots (that we joking called Vegan Lil' Smokies), mashed potatoes, gravy, and crescent rolls (courtesy of the Dough Boy) with either apple pie or cheesecake (both baked from scratch by Son2) for dessert.

Sounds like a wonderful meal with your family. I was just hanging out by my PC and finally, in the evening my friends brought up a piece of pumpkin pie for me. It was very good,
