I did not grow up in the south. My Thanksgiving in Wisconsin was always very straightforward, as we midwesterners tend to be: turkey, stuffing, gravy, potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls, and pies. Many pies.
So for the last two Thanksgivings, I have stayed in Nashville and learned about the overwhelmingly awesome variety that is thanksgiving dinner: turkey, stuffing, broccoli cheese casserole, corn casserole, squash, some sort of beans I can’t even name, sweet potatoes, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, okra, and pies. Many pies. I’m sure I’m not even remembering everything, but all of it was delicious, of course.
What is your typical thanksgiving? Has it changed since you’ve grown up and moved or started your own traditions? Dish!
