And I always have to make additional stuffing because it's our favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal!

No sweet potatoes or yams, the dreaded "Green Bean Casserole", ham with any type of sweet glaze or sauce. Why waste a beautiful ham with any kind of sweet goop?

Fruitcake--which I've never tasted, BTW, and don't intend to. I guess there's just something about hard green cherries that's a little too funky for me.

Yep, you're right! Fruitcake ranges from gag awful to just barely good enough I can be polite when I really like the person serving it

You need to meet people who make better fruitcakes! The kind with dried fruit instead of candied fruit -- dates and figs and raisins and cranberries -- and rum (or bourbon, I'm not fussy) are delicious.

I've never had fruitcake, my only issue being nuts. I'm not allergic to them. I just don't like them. Other than that, fruitcake looks lovely, the candied fruit being part of its aesthetic.

There is the "official sets cornerstone for new school fruitcake" and the real stuff. Family gave us option A for years. We can just about brick a dog house with it. The real stuff disappears.

MIL's potato salad. Some mystery ingredients and no way to actually carbon date it.

I usually do not eat pumpkin pie or sweet potato pie during the holidays. Usually there is another dessert that I would much rather eat - banana pudding, apple pie, etc.

Ironically, I love eating candied yams or baked sweet potatoes during the holidays. Without them, it just doesn't feel like the season.
