    What is your Thanksgiving menu? Depending on where you live, the menu changes. Which are those dishes that always need to make the table of your family celebration?

    I live in Puerto Rico, but we do celebrate Thanksgiving Day. In our family menu, some side dishes could change every year, but there is always pigeon peas rice, roasted turkey, potato salad (or macaroni salad) and pineapple glazed ham.

    What about you? Where do you live? What is your family menu?

      Turkey and Rotten Egg Pie.

      Beyond that, it's always up for grabs.  With at least a dozen families in the mix, all bringing dishes, no one ever knows until that fateful day

        I love big family reunions.

          We will probably have around 30 this year.  4 generations worth, coming from as far as halfway across the country.

      I live in Pennsylvania, and the real essentials for me on Thanksgiving are turkey (naturally), stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie.  The rest is negotiable.

        What kind of stuffing do you prefer?

        Stuffing/dressing is not that popular here in PR. But when people do stuff the turkey, mofongo (fried mash plantains) has become the favorite one.

    I do mine kind of "rustic" with cubed stale bread, onion, celery, garlic, butter, salt, and pepper.

      Cool. That's a nice traditional stuffing.
