What Your Favorite Thanksgiving Food Says About You

Because, let’s be honest here, no one likes turkey. Right? Especially at this time of year, we believe that you are what you eat. Which is to say that if you love pumpkin pie we think you are a decadent hedonist. If you’re into brussel sprouts we think you’ll be into Occupy Wall Street. It really all makes sense in our heads.

    Brussels Sprouts are delicious. You are a jerk.

      I concur, brussels sprouts rule. Roasted in the oven with a dash of truffle oil? Holy shit. I have to say pumpkin pie has always been my favorite, though. Because it’s custardlike, and I love custard. Also because I am cool.

      Jamie, I’m sorry but you know in your heart that I cook Brussels Sprouts in bacon fat.

      Also! I don’t like pumpkin pie. Weirdly, I love custard. Pumpkin pie tastes chalky to me.

      At least we wouldn’t have any trouble sharing at Thanksgiving.

      Brussels Sprouts are delicious. Bacon is more delicious. The world can only win when those two are combined.

      Also, Ashley, try this: http://mschaut.wordpress.com/2007/11/08/amish-pumpkin-custard-pie/ . It’s pretty close to the recipe I got from my grandmother, and produces a pumpkin pie that magically separates in the oven into 3 layers: one of traditional pumpkin pie, one of custard and a fluffy, soft top layer like the foam on top of a cappuccino, only more substantial.

      It’s the one thing I can bake, which is okay because it’s the best thing.

    We don’t eat turkey because my mom doesn’t like it. We have chicken instead. But my favorite are the roasted potatoes.

  • Lainey

    Brussel sprouts with extra virgin olive oil, shaved reggiano and pancetta is delightful!

  • Prisca

    How are mashed potatoes not included in this??

    This turkey looks very delicious with it’s fixings,i also love brussel sprouts but i would prefer having a good sweet potato pie instead of pumpkin with my meal with home made mac and cheese,it’s making me hungary and think i’ll go and eat some now,Emmett North Jr.
