Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks, spending time with the people we’re close to, and food. Lots and lots, and lots of food. For example, most families will eat turkey on Thanksgiving.

No matter how much food you eat on Thanksgiving, everyone has a favorite food. Sometimes it’s meat, sometimes veggies, sometimes desert.

For senior Cameron Thompson, it is mashed potatoes.

My all-time favorite food is macaroni and cheese. Sure, it isn’t a traditional Thanksgiving food, but it is my all time favorite. My grandmother has to make just for me, every year.

Senior Taylor O’Donnell has a definite love.

“I love, love, love stuffing,” she said. “Like a lot.”

Then, she followed with, “But I really hate cranberry sauce.”

How dare she. Cranberry sauce is my second favorite Thanksgiving food. I just love the contrast the tang gives to everything else you eat.

Cranberry sauce is delicious (and yes, O’Donnell and I argued about it for 10 minutes).
But to each their own.

Just like O’Donnell with cranberry sauce, there are also foods that many people dislike. Some might say, hate with a burning passion.

My food hate has to be sweet potatoes. It’s just something about the gross, slimy texture and the not quite right orange color. It feels like putting an alien food in my mouth.

And don’t get me started on pumpkin pie, or sweet potato pie for that matter. They both feel and taste like baby food being baked to an almost inedible degree.

No matter what one’s favorite food is, most can agree Thanksgiving is definitely a great holiday. After all, who doesn’t love eating until they’re sick?
