Just me rambling about birds, books, bunnies, or whatever!

All the chatter at work the last few days has been about the upcoming holiday meal and who's going where and cooking what.
It's a pretty diverse crowd and I've enjoyed hearing about everyone's plans for Thanksgiving as well as their family traditions. My own family is pretty typical, I'd guess... a huge meal on the fancy china, but the star of the show is always the variety of vegetables we prepare; we always go a little overboard in that way. It's hard for me to settle on a favorite, but Brussels Sprouts certainly top my list.
Is that weird?
(It seems like most everyone I talk to hates Brussels Sprouts!)
My answer is that if you don't like 'em, you must not be cooking them properly.
So tell me... what's your favorite thing to eat on Turkey Day? Mashed potatoes piled high with butter? Or mixed with whipped turnips? Creamed (yuck!) onions? Lasagna? Arroz con gandules?
