The only cranberry anything I can stomach is cranberry butter (on sliced zucchini bread, OMG yum), and cranberry-orange-nut muffins.

Any stuffing -other- than my mom's stuffing, I really just avoid. She doesn't use Stove Top. She uses oatmeal and fresh chopped celery and butter and these big flat hard white spanish crackers that she breaks into smaller pieces, and I can't remember what herbs she puts in there. That's what we stuff the turkey with. When she makes the stuffing outside the bird in a baking casserole, she adds a little chicken stock to keep it moist. Everyone else uses Stove Top, which is just seriously icky to me, or sausage, or bits of some kind of meat...

I'm also not fond of mashed potatoes, or non-sweet sweet potatoes/yams, or parsnips or cooked carrots. (I'm one of the people who -likes- sweet yam casserole). I've never been to any dinner where green bean casserole was served. I have no idea what it tastes like so I can't comment on it.

Why not have what you like. Bring a hibachi and a T-bone. I bet a couple of people would be asking for a taste.

I went to a friend's house one year and her starter was creamy turnip soup.

I've found another house for T-giving ever since!

OP, I agree with you here. I hate that stuff!!

It screams Fifties to me, and looks like chilled road kill.
