We have stuffing in Fl and dressing in TN. Mine is a little of both, I put more bread in my cornbread dressing.

We have all the traditional stuff as always.
I did want to ask if others like to have what I call bitters on the table. Most like the sweeter veggies and side dishes. I like to have a bitter, such as collard greens or turnips.
My favorite has become rutabagas.

My dressing is not Cajun but I do prefer real sage sausage in mine, my mother would just add a teaspoon of sage.My Yankee husband would prefer I use Jiffy cornbread which was how I converted him to it.
Now he likes it I don't put the cake disguised as cornbread in it :rofl:

Stuffing (dressing) is like BBQ, there's a bunch of different types out there and everyone has their own opinion as to what's good. My Mother-in-laws cornbread dressing is OK but I didn't grow up on it and I prefer my breaded-herb dressing. Bread, sautéed onions, butter, poultry seasoning with extra sage thrown in, a good amount of pepper, salt, chop and throw in the giblets, it's basic but reminds me of Thanksgiving gone by.

I only put a pinch of sage in my dressing. Only use cornbread and about 6 slices of 'stale' white bread or biscuits... depends on what is on hand.

We have mashed potatos, sweet potatoes, green beans (not the casserole), mac and cheese, broccoli casserole, rolls, cranberry sauce.... I think that's it. So, I don't guess we have a 'bitter'. I may have to add turnip greens this year. Great idea, Laurie!!!

My husband loves green bean casserole. My side of the family are big casserole people.
Squash casserole
green bean casserole
broccoli casserole
Mac&cheese
Sweet potato casserole
And of course the stuffing and mashed potatoes it's too rich for me when you add rolls.
I am the one that usually adds carrots, corn, and greens to the menu. The kids appreciate the corn and carrots.

My side dish is love.

I love my wife. I love my children. And, I love my grandchildren, too. I love my sisters, I love my aunts and uncle's. But, I have no brothers, so I just love my brother friends.

So here is my side dish::

I don't eat the rolls. I'd rather leave that room for other goodies. Some of the family likes to sop up the gravy and stuff. I detest green bean casserole. If someone makes it, I do not object.

I am learning the hard way with them, I have found that you need to peal them deep for them to be tender.
You still have to boil them until they turn a deep golden color. I like to add a pinch of sugar if they are a little bitter, then mash with butter, salt and pepper. I have found them to be a bit like carrots some are sweeter than others.

I also made vanilla pudding from scratch when I was at dads. We could not find any sugar free pudding that you cook for banana pudding so I made it from scratch it was really good. It tasted just like my grandmothers except she would add meringue to hers and brown the top, I used homemade whip cream.

My grandmothers seemed to whip up deserts out of nothing, a custard pie, banana pudding, bread or rice pudding, it is a lost art form.

When I was little, we always had 'traditional' side dishes for Thanksgiving, sweet potato casserole, green bean cass, congealed salads of ALL KINDS (YUK),mashed potatoes and so on. And oddly, nobody seemed to love them, but we had them because it was Thanksgiving. :wacko: :blink:

Now however, we have what we like and most of it is just plain old food. Turkey, Hubbys must have rice and gravy, stuffing, green beans, mac and cheese, brocolli cass, deviled eggs, etc. I want mashed potatoes, but I can't bring myself to put another starch on the table, it just seems wrong somehow!! :lol:

It seems my great grandmother made a jello salad with shredded carrots in it. There was one they put miniature marshmallows and nuts in it. They were terrible.

And she LOVED these pair things, they were halved pairs from a can with a dollop of mayo in the center well, topped with grated cheddar cheese and a jar cherry!? REALLY Mama!!!!??????!!!!!! :lol: It's no wonder that I only like PLAIN food!!

Now I remember, they also put coconut in it sometimes. I modified the pears I like cottage cheese and shredded cheese no cherries. I don't have it as desert just a snack sometimes.

I also love ambrosia but haven't made it for years. We will have the green bean casserole because my grandkids want it; I can eat it after the first time because it doesn't warm up well!!

We have sweet potato casserole (but not with marshmallows on top), mashed potato casserole (they fight over it), creamed corn (for grandson), asparagus, rolls, gravy, deviled eggs.

For dessert:

Pumpkin pie cake
Pumpkin pie
cupcakes
pecan cream cheese pie

My cousin makes a pumpkin cheese cake. I have pretty much lost my sweet tooth it makes it hard to participate in the excitement over the deserts.
I don't really know why I lost the taste for sweets, it definitely leaves me feeling left out because I am not very enthusiastic or in a hurry after the meal to get it on the table. That causes some grumbling.
I am a grazer so I want to wait until I have room, I don't like to stuff myself.

Jello and pudding were very popular in the 60's they made parfaits layered with the new miracle food coolwhip.

My parents were very 60's in many of their taste. They liked cool whip better than real whip cream, they preferred margarine over butter and canned biscuits over scratch. They would not touch wheat bread until dad got diabetes.
They were extremely fond of any prepackaged meets. They definitely preferred American cheese and velveeta to the real thing.
They preferred canned veggies over frozen and seasoned them with margarine and pepper.
I can never get the food salty enough when I cook for them, it is supposedly inedible because adding salt at the table just does not taste right.
I salt things like potatoes and pasta when cooking and lightly salt other things when cooking.
I eat most veggies and meat cooked from scratch so I am not use to the amount of salt that store made food has in it.

I make Waldorf Salad. Apples, celery, crasins, walnuts, mayo. LOVE IT!! I only make a very small bowl. We always had it as I grew up so now I make it for Mama's memory. Me and the daughter usually split it as we are the only ones who really like it.

Used to do stuffing, now we do dressing.

And for new, or neophyte cooks who want to do stuffing, PLEAAAAASE make sure to check he
the internal temperature of the stuffing just as you check the turkey. You want 160-165F. Anything less than that and you could have some distressed eaters later.

Hence why we switched to dressing, made with herbed bread and cornmeal, and basted with stock.

Sweet Potato casserole for everyone but me....I just never acquired a taste for the sweet potato.

Little green peas.....sugar snaps if you can get them mixed in with the cooked english peas.

Wild Rice....a nice twist on mashed taters.

Cranberry sauce.....NOT FROM A CAN. Simply wash a bag of berries, add water, sugar, a bit of salt, orange zest. And bring to a boil, and then let them simmer.

Gravy, with and without giblets.

And fluffy Melissa biscuits made with goose or duck fat.

Dessert traditionally for us would be pecan pie and pumpkin pie, although the kids got to where they would twist my arm to do Black Bottom Pie instead.

And I don't think I have ever prepared mac and cheese, other than maybe feeding it to the kids during the picky food stage of 2-4th grade.

My grandmothers seemed to whip up deserts out of nothing, a custard pie, banana pudding, bread or rice pudding, it is a lost art form.



Now, this is the ONLY way to fix a Banana Pudding, is to cook "homemade" pudding. I like the meringe (sp?) on top as well but, no one else does.

When I was cooking on a daily basis, when all of my children were at home, I would have these little quirks about what goes with what ..............If I cooked pork chops, I had to have mac-n-cheese and Leseur (sp?) Peas with it. If I cooked Salmon Patties, I had to have baked beans, with it. If I cooked Pinto Beans and Corn Bread, I had to have Mashed Potatoes, funny, huh???

I am most definitely like that. I will send someone to the store for the right thing. I can't eat meatloaf without mashed potatoes. Funny you mentioned the peas, I think I have to have them with fish.

As far as releasing my name here, it's not going to happen.  There have been people here who found someone's given name and then found where they worked and made things difficult for them - all because they didn't like them here because of their political opinions.

I love pear salads, I made one this week with the mayo, cheese and cherry on top! Makes a great snack.


I usually make a Watergate Salad, it's easy and everyone loves it!

LOL My mother made them when I was growing up every Sunday Dinner. A big plate, and they were as yummy as a dessert without all the sweetness and heaviness, I make them a lot and my kids love them.
