        My favorite thanksgiving food would have to be the turkey. My dad makes it very moist to were it melts in your mouth. I also love to eat is the rolls. My aunt gets the Beefhouse rolls and she bakes them, they are so good and and it is my second favorite food. I love this holiday so much because my brothers come home and i get the chance to see them and hanging out with them. This time of the year is special for me. Getting to see my family members that i haven’t seen in awhile and it brings me so much happiness.

      Thanksgiving is a rough time for a wrestler. Reasoning, most dedicated wrestlers intend to be cutting weight around this time. Even though, normally the one food i actually eat on thanksgiving is HAM! Oh boy is ham good, biting into a juicy piece of ham with a baked sliver of pineapple. That’s what it’s all about, thanksgiving the time to eat juicy ham. Waking up on thanksgiving morning knowing your about to eat the best ham of your life is the best feeling in the world. So now you know I LOVE HAM!
      P.S- It must have pineapple or its now the same.

      I personally enjoy every food that there is to offer on Thanksgiving! From the tender juicy meats, to the warm filling cheese cake. I cant forget about the sweet chicken noodles along with the warm buttery mashed potatoes. If I still have room in my crowded stomach I’ll add some steamy corn casserole. The good thing about thanksgiving is that you’ll be eating good food for the rest of the week!

      I love Thanksgiving! Spending time with family members we don’t see throughout the year, eating sooooo much food until we have to get out and go for a walk, our traditional thanksgiving walk afterwards, games, laughter, ect. It might very well be my favorite holiday. To pick one food that I enjoy out of them all is VERY hard. Considering I eat everything my Nana offers me. With her sweet spirit how can i resists the delicious food? The ham, mac and cheese, green bean casserole, rolls, mashed taters and gravy. No wonder I always need new clothes for Christmas.
      P.S.
      Thank god Christmas is coming soon!

    Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, no other day do most people eat this much food. Only one time a year I usually have turkey cooked like this. I believe it is the best food because only having it once a year makes you more appreciative of it. Nothing is better than smashing food and being thankful for life and watching football on this day, and going shopping on the next. The turkey is more than image of my favorite food of the day it is an example of an item that brings the family together. This is why turkey is my favorite Thanksgiving food.

    Turkey is the best Thanksgiving food. It’s as soft and easy to pull apart as a fresh loaf of bread out of the oven. We make our turkey so juicy and flavorful that you can taste it in your mouth just by smelling it in the roaster, and the flavor makes your mouth water which makes you want to eat the entire animal on your own. Sitting on a platter on the table, it’s golden brown color lures everyone together to enjoy it’s delicious goodness.

    My favorite Thanksgiving food is pumpkin pie. That magnificent scent I can smell throughout the house notifies me when the pie and the dinner is ready to be devoured. Stuffing my face with the turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and that sweet pumpkin pie. After I am finished with the main course; it is time for the pumpkin pie battle. I make a special place in my crammed stomach for that pie. After I am finished licking the pan, I lie down thinking about the next Thanksgiving ready to feast.

    When thinking of Thanksgiving, Grandmother’s chicken and noodles come to mind. It is essential to mix the chicken and noodles with mashed taters. The chicken is fresh off the farm, beheaded less than 24 hours before cooking. The next step is the noodles, she makes them fresh of course. Lastly, the taters are picked out of the garden right before she mashes them. This makes the best Thanksgiving meal known to man.

    Mashed potatoes are my favorite Thanksgiving food. I can add salt, pepper, butter and cheese. I like mine chunky. Some parts soft and some parts are mushy. Another reason this is my favorite Thanksgiving food is because I can also add corn or green beans to the mashed potatoes. I can add my favorite gravy to the top. I normally eat mine with a spoon. I only like the homemade mashed potatoes. The instant are okay but not as good.

    Turkey… It just smacks my taste buds with an explosion of flavor. I especially love the dark meat. It is just soothing. It gives you protein, iron, and many nutrients. I lose my mind every time my mom doesn’t make turkey. Ham does not even compare. If you put a little bit of gravy on top, man, it does not get better than that. Usually when thanksgiving comes around, the only thing on my mind. Don’t get me wrong though. There are many other good foods on Thanksgiving such as stuffing and chicken and noodles. But turkey just makes me happy. One type of turkey I would want to try is Wine and Herb-basted Roast Turkey. it just sounds amazing. Either way, Turkey is the bomb.

    My grandmothers slaves in the kitchen all day, preparing a wonderful meal for the family to eat. My favorite thanksgiving food would have to be the homemade chicken and noodles. The chicken noodles are even better if there is mashed potatoes mixed in. After eating the Thanksgiving dinner I get so stuffed and cant eat for two days due to the amount of food I ate. The next two days after Thanksgiving are a little rough, I spend most of my time on the john looking at all the Black Friday fliers. This is my favorite time of year I just chow down on all the good food and deserts.

    Green bean casserole is my favorite thanksgiving food. It’s a little slice of heaven on a plate. It’s basically cream of mushroom soup, mixed in with green beans, and french fried onion rings on top. It doesn’t sound appealing, but i promise that you will love it if you try it. You can eat it coming right out of the oven when it is steaming hot, or you can even eat it cold. It’s delicious both ways. It’s a creamy, scrumptious food that everyone should have on thanksgiving!

      I love the adjectives used in your response. I do not like green bean casserole, but this response makes me want to try it again. Great imagery. You could have described the taste a little more, but it was still good.

    When Thanksgiving comes around, I always know I have to be both mentally and physically prepared for the feast. I enjoy all of the food presented to me at the dinner but, there is definitely only one cut for my favorite food. I love to devour some biscuits covered in that savory, buttery sauce. Every time the biscuit enters my mouth, I begin to understand what heaven might actually taste like. Biscuits are the perfect compliment to the rest of the feast, especially when they are baked just right. When the biscuits are in the oven rising to greatness, I impatiently pace around the kitchen. Finally, when the timer dings I jump quick to the oven where greatness beholds itself. As I pull down the oven door, Jesus himself hands me the 10 biscuits and I thank him for his gratitude. I eat the biscuits with grace and enjoyment; the taste can only be enjoyed for a certain amount of time before you know you are getting full. After eating the biscuits, I lie on my bed thinking about where the day had went, and I wait for the next year to come.

      Biscuits aren’t one of my favorite dishes but after reading this, I feel like biscuits have a deeper meaning. They aren’t just a side dish, they are a way of life. I loved your use of imagery and it actually sounds like you’re saying it.

    Thanksgiving is a day that we give thanks to anything and anyone. My favorite food on Thanksgiving is most definitely chicken noodles. I love mixing the noodles with mashed potatoes. When I think of chicken noodles, I think of Thanksgiving and fall. I also like turkey, ham, and pumpkin pie, but they do not compare to chicken noodles. I could eat chicken noodles everyday of the year. The creamy texture, seasoning, the way it glides down your mouth, and just the overall taste are why chicken noodles are my favorite food on Thanksgiving. Along with family, football, and giving thanks, chicken noodles complete my Thanksgiving.

    Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because I get to be with my family and there is plenty of great food to eat. However, my most favorite food on Thanksgiving is pumpkin pie. I absolutely love pumpkin pie and look forward to it every year. I eat so much pumpkin pie that I feel borderline sick, but it is worth it every time. If I had to compare pumpkin pie to something else, it would have to be heaven since it is Godly like. The taste is unbelievable, especially when their is whip cream on top of it. There is no other food that is comparable to pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. Although food and pumpkin pie are great, there is nothing better than being with my family on Thanksgiving.

      The pie is good, but not quite as good as a chocolate chip pecan pie! I like how you went into detail about the pie and compared it to heaven. I also agree that even though the food is good, nothing beats spending time with family.

    My favorite Thanksgiving food would probably have to be a giant roasted turkey. I like how it just melts in my mouth and you can taste all the juicy flavors that are fused into it. Also, who doesn’t like a Turkey? It’s the main food item for a Thanksgiving dinner. I’m no expert on bulking but I’d say that eating a giant roasted turkey for Thanksgiving is one good way to bulk. Thanksgiving is a tradition that we’ve celebrated for many years and for someone to not eat a giant roasted turkey would be an insult.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    My favorite Thanksgiving food would probably have to be my grandmas stuffing and then I would I have to say that my other favorite thanksgiving food would be her smoked pineapple turkey. Grandmas smoked pineapple turkey is something that Is to die for. Just talking about Thanksgiving is making me want to have it tonight after school. But the down fall of having Thanksgiving is all my annoying, ugly little cousins tearing up the house and being just being brats. The thing that gets me fired up the most is probably when they get a full plate of food and then only eat like two things off the plate and then leave their plate in some random area in the house. That makes me mad just because the fact that food is too good to be wasted like that. But other then that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite Holidays because I can sit on the couch and get fat all day and watch football.

    Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and my favorite part of it is having mashed potatoes. Every year i spend my Thanksgiving with my aunt and uncle in Indiana and I help them cook everything and get ready for the big dinner. I love helping my aunt peel the potatoes and throw them into a huge bowl with a little bit of butter and milk and mash them up. Once we are done i put a little bit of pepper and gravy on top of them and that’s generally what i eat the most of. Thanksgiving is one of my favorites because i love spending time with close family and cooking and being together.

    When the smell hits, my stomach instantly begins to grumble. While there are countless great foods, turkey has to be my favorite Thanksgiving food. I watch as my uncle grills the turkey and I listen the the popping it makes on the grill. After it has slowly been grilled to perfection, he adds his special seasoning to the turkey. Everything else has been laid on the table and when he brings in the turkey, I know it’s time to eat. I load up my plate, then go and sit with my cousins. When I take my first bite of turkey, I always remember how marvelous it tastes. After I finish off my plate, I always get more turkey. When I put it on my plate I can still see the sizzling of the juices. After eating more than enough turkey for the day, I can’t help but think about the turkey I will eat the next day!

    Thanksgiving Day is a unique and fun holiday for many reasons. However, I believe the food is one of the most important things that sets Thanksgiving aside from any other holiday. My favorite food on Thanksgiving Day is green bean casserole. This steamy dish is made up of fresh green beans and crisp French onions. There is no one who makes green bean casserole better than my mother. When she makes it at home, I cannot stop smelling the entrancing aroma that flows throughout the entire house. The smell overwhelms me so much sometimes, that I take small bites of the casserole whenever there is nobody looking. Right after my family says grace, we begin to fill our plates. I can’t help but laugh when my I hear my mom say, “Who’s been eating the casserole?”. As I continue to feel my plate, I make sure that there are some creamy mashed potatoes and hot rolls with me at all times. I love to mix the green bean casserole with the mashed potatoes and then put all of it on top of a roll. Thanksgiving Day would not be the same without green bean casserole.

    Thanksgiving Day is one of the best days of the year. It’s the one day where you are supposed to just eat all day long. My favorite food to eat on Thanksgiving Day would have to be ham. The ham that my family makes I could live off of. When I walk into my grandmas house the first thing I always smell is the ham. I instantly get a plate and go get first dibs on the ham. Almost every thanksgiving my grandpa asks “Are you only gonna eat ham?”. I always answer with ” This is just my first plate.” I always go back for seconds and get biscuits or some chips. After I eat all of my food I take a nap and dream of the next Thanksgiving Dinner.

    Thanksgiving, to me, has become quite boring. It’s not that I feel like I don’t have anything to be thankful for because, believe me, there’s plenty. It’s just become a little repetitious at my house. We’ll all eat lunch, say what we are thankful for, and then us teens go our own way until about seven o’clock. I never really eat much on thanksgiving, but what keeps me there and saves me from my boredom is the magnificent taste of pumpkin pie. I love the fact that it’s such a rare treat only being on the table once or twice a year. The sweet and soft whipped cream on top of the tangy yet spiceful taste mixes beautifully together. Pumpkin pie is what makes Thanksgiving great for me. I am really looking forward next Thursday.

    Thanksgiving is for sure my absolute favorite holiday. My favorite food when it comes to my family Thanksgiving feast would have to be my mom’s homemade chicken and noodles. My mom makes everything fresh including the noodles. I love helping her get everything ready for Thanksgiving day. It’s always super busy in my house the morning of Thanksgiving. Everyone’s rushing to make sure everything’s going to be done on time and done the correct way. I eat at least three plates full of food on Thanksgiving day.

    I would have to say the Hawaiian rolls are the best thing to eat on Thanksgiving. I always make sure to put at least 3 on my plate and go back for more. I love smothering them in butter and the smell of them makes me super hungry. I often get so excited to eat them even when it isn’t Thanksgiving. I also really like devil eggs because we get the eggs fresh from our very own farm. Yum!

    Thanksgiving to me isn’t about the food, but about family. Yet I do enjoy many dishes cooked during the festive event, but one I like most would be green bean casserole. Yes the nasty green cylinders I find most delicious in my mouth because there are many spices and ingredients included. The crisps fried onions to the sweet sour cream sturred to the touch. I usually eat about half a plate full when everyone else is eating their precious pumpkin pie. After word I go lie down and enjoy my time with my family.

    My favorite Thanksgiving food would have to be my great-grandmother’s noodles and mashed potatoes. First of all, this dynamic duo has been in our family for nearly one-hundred years! It seems like every year the noodles and mashed potatoes get better and better. The best part for me is when the noodles come out of the steamy pot and savored in the juice; then thrown on top of a mountain of mashed potatoes. Even though mashed potatoes and noodles are common at every table, the way we prepare ours is unique. Firstly, the potatoes are mashed… literally! Everyone one in the family gets a turn mashing and stirring the potatoes with a concrete mixer attached to a drill. Also, the noodles are prepared by eyeballing and using broken egg shells to measure. There is no need for measuring cups when you can have your own utensils. In the end, I will always enjoy the moments shared with my family making my favorite meal every Thanksgiving. This is by far the best time of the year!

    Thanksgiving day is full of a lot of food. There are noodles, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and more, but the one dish that surpasses all of the other dishes is pumpkin pie. I could chow down on some pumpkin pie. The wonderful smell and the texture of the pie. It is indeed the best of all pies. These other pies can’t compete. The exquisite flavor fusion of the pie and the sweet, creamy whipped cream. I get my first plate dreaming about that pie. I always make room for it. I cut down on some noodles because i have to make room. If there isn’t room, I go to the last resort. I do the old unbutton the pants move. While it may seem uncivilized to some, to me it is a rite of passage. You have to go through the all the food in order to commit such an act. After I’m done myself gorging on some pie, I return to my chamber to rest and watch some football.

    As we walk into my grandmas house all the different scents of foods hit your nose instantly. To me the number one thing that stands out the most is the homemade chicken and noodles. The nice and warm and steamy noodles and the nice and tender chicken is just amazing in my mouth hole. Her chicken and noodles is the only kind I will eat and its the only time of year we get to eat them.

    Thanksgiving is the best holiday to me because you can watch football and get fat at the same time all day. My favorite food is the mashed taters. I help mom with the taters. She tries to give me a wooden spoon, but i get the drill out of the garage and tape the spoon to it and stir the taters up. But the best part of thanksgiving is that we have us a family gathering. It is always a good time when the Mullins’s have a family gathering we play games and other activities. This is why thanksgiving is the best.

    When I think of Thanksgiving the first thing that pops in my mind is food! My favorite food that we have is mashed potatoes. Yum! I mean who doesn’t like them? My second favorite would have to be deviled eggs. Although the food is really good, I really enjoy getting to spend time with my family in West Virginia. We don’t really do much except watch football and stuff our faces, but I wouldn’t want to have it any other way.

    Thanksgiving is not all about the food, although it is everyone’s favorite part of the day.My favorite food on Thanksgiving day is chicken and noodles. Being a picky person on thanksgiving is not always the best but, when I find a food I like it helps a lot. Walking into my grandmas house and smelling the homemade noodles and seeing the flour all over the kitchen is the best, until you are told it is not time to eat yet. Once it is finally time to eat I sit down and enjoy my chicken and noodles with my family.
