Almost all sweets, really. Sweet potato pie or sweet potatoes with brown sugar and marshmallows. Ham with sweet sauce. Pumpkin pie or most any kind of pie, unless its a cream pie. Anything with coconut. (I can make an exception for a cream pie with some crumbled roasted coconut.)

Divinity. Peanut brittle. Anything that is mostly candy. Fruit cake. Dry turkey. (Dry anything really.) Cookies. Cakes. Dry dressing/stuffing. Any veg that is roasted and has black bits. Anything with frosting.

Still trying to think of others.

I use the word "food" very loosely here, but Marshmallow Peeps. Never mind the fact that I don't like them, but a friend told me a story about how her uncle used to work for the company that makes them, and some of the things that used to go in the vat. No thanks!

We usually don't avoid any of the holiday offerings, we just maintain moderation and do our best.

Turkey. I just don't care for it. I do like deli sliced mesquite turkey though.

The only thing I don't like at Thanksgiving is cooking!

But this next Thanksgiving will be different because we've cut back severely on carbs and won't be making an exception for the holiday. Sounds like turkey and vegetables, no stuffing, no huge pots of mashed potato, no sweet potato, no cranberry sauce, no pies, no rolls, etc.

Anything involving marshmallow...I don't put 'em on my sweet potatoes, and Peeps know better than to darken my doorstep. The sole instance in which I will tolerate marshmallow is in rice crispy treats.

I ONLY like stuffing/dressing if it's the family recipe for cornbread, sage, and onion dressing. The more common dreassing made with regular wheat bread cubes, versus savory cornbread crumbles, has an unappetizing gummy texture. But the cornbread-based is divine!

I also don't care for lamb, but that's not ultra disruptive to the Easter process, since food traditions aren't all that strong for that meal, at least where I am.
