Ah, Thanksgiving... the family holiday that's not Christmas, but gives us enough feasting so that we can hold out until we're able to deck the halls and tralalala all the way back to our families – wherever in the country they may be. Thanksgiving is a time of feasting, togetherness, and inevitably some arguments.
You know exactly the kinds of arguments we're talking about...
This aunt’s casserole is tastes like cardboard, that uncle added waay more rum than was necessary to the cider, and – (the most horrific food sin of all) – the turkey is too dry.
What, did you think we were going to mention other inflammatory topics?
Then there are the specific foods.
Celebrity chefs recently spoke to Time magazine about their most disliked Thanksgiving food, and there was a clear consensus for most-hated Thanksgiving food of all.
Was it turkey, you ask?
Well, while a poorly-prepared bird can be so dry and overdone it sticks to your throat like a piece of chalk, the humble turkey wasn’t the dish that raised the chef’s ire.
How about potato salad?
Let’s be honest, here. Potato salad is literally one of the worst things on earth if you buy it from the store. It’s usually cold and has a weird chemical aftertaste that tastes like nastiness and funk.
Surprisingly, potato salad wasn’t on the chef’s list.
What about stuffing?
We don’t even know where to start with this one… Have you ever eaten an excellent stuffing? Well, have you?
Strangely, it wasn’t on the list either.
