White meat most definitely. I do not like stringy veins and arteries that are abundant in dark meat.

I'm SO excited!!!

My favorite part is the visiting, the noshing, the rush to get it all together when it's all ready, and enjoying a fine meal with those I love most.

Happy Thanksgiving T~. Enjoy yours. I know you will.
We're combining our Thanksgiving with a friend of my brother. At last count we're having 22 people here! Should be fun!

Maineah, what another great idea for a poll!

I'm white meat all the way on Turkey Day. The dark meat works well in leftover turkey pies and soups though. If I only knew how to make either of those, life would be oh so much more entertaining though.

I'm just the opposite of Island Mermaid. I like the dark meat for dinner, but then the white for leftovers and sandwiches.

I am SO EXCITED for this Thanksgiving. It's been 7 years since we celebrated the day in America. Although I've always cooked a dinner, it's just not the same being in Canada. Our company canceled at the last minute, so it's just DH, the dog and me. Doesn't matter....more leftovers....which I enjoy more than the meal itself. Call me crazy, but I even enjoyed the crowed grocery shopping for the fixings over the weekend. I'm picking up my fresh turkey after work today.

I want to incorporate some type of "Maine" food into this, and future years, dinner. Any ideas?

I'm a white meat guy but my wife is dark meat all the way.
My brothers both prefer dark but my kids like white. It works out in the long run.
Same at my house too.

I prefer white meat but will eat dark. I like a combo in my turkey sandwich with lots of mayo, NOT Miracle Whip, and pepper
