It’s that time of the year again when we start to remember what we’re thankful for. Not only do we reminisce about the good things we have in life, but the delicious food we get to enjoy for Thanksgiving! There are so many dishes to be grateful for during this season, from delicious desserts to mouth watering main courses.

Obviously, during Thanksgiving, turkey is an all time favorite, but what about all the other delicious foods? Let’s talk about the other foods that help put together the amazing Thanksgiving meal.

“The best thing to eat during Thanksgiving is the ham, because it’s such a seasonal food! I love the time of the year when it’s finally time for ham,” senior Megan Sengl said.

“In my opinion the best thing to eat during Thanksgiving is the mashed potatoes! The ones my family makes are always so creamy, and I could eat them for days on end. They are a perfect side along with the turkey,” senior Elli Hagan said.

An all time favorite dessert during the holiday is pie. There are so many pies that you can choose from and bake for this holiday, the choices are endless. There is pumpkin pie, chocolate pie, apple pie, cranberry pie, and so much more!

“My favorite thing to eat for Thanksgiving is chocolate pie, and we always make it homemade every year which makes it ten times better,” senior Abbi Swann said.

“Personally, my favorite Thanksgiving food is green bean casserole. My grandma makes it from scratch, which makes it even more so delicious! The flakes on the top are my favorite part, as well as the creamy sauce,” junior Julia Riley said.

“My favorite Thanksgiving dish is turkey with cranberry sauce. It is the perfect mix of sweet and savory,” senior Kelly Henderson said.

My favorite thing to do at the end of Thanksgiving is to go home and wait until the day after Thanksgiving to see all the leftovers in my fridge, and then put them all together and eat them. To me Thanksgiving isn’t over until all the food is gone!” senior Sarah Herr said.

The best feeling on Thanksgiving is having your full stomach and spending time with ones you love the most. Be sure to appreciate what you have and enjoy the meal!
