    It's a tie between the turkey and candied sweet potatoes! :-)

      Sounds good to me. I think the turkey is one of my favorites too.  In actuality I've been known to answer "thanksgiving dinner" when someone asks my favorite food.

    For me the definite favorite is Pumpkin Pie.

    I could skip the whole Thanksgiving Dinner for just a taste of pumpkin pie, no cream or Cool Whip, just good ol' pie. smile

    The dressing! I have been using my grandmother's from-scratch recipe for dressing for years, and I always make it the same size roaster as the turkey so that I have enough to enjoy for a long time.

    My daughter's mother-in-law makes Candied Yams from fresh yams and they are fantastic. I could make a meal of those Yams and leave everything else alone.  She also makes a fantastic potato salad but not on Thanksgiving but it sure is great.

      I'm not a huge yam fan myself, so if you were at my table I'd certainly make sure you got an extra helping.

    I love the meat and potato stuffing that my grandmother used to make....I only make it on Thanksgiving and always wonder why because it's just so good!

    This might be cheating, but I like to put it all together in a (vegetarian) sandwich with the stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry, and green bean casserole in a dinner roll smile

    I love the mixture of turkey with stuffing.  Since we only make our menu on this one particular day, I really look forward to all of the foods served together. 

    It's funny to see how a simple meal can bring so many comforts and memorable moments that we remember year after year.

    I love it all! I guess my favorite would be my mom’s stuffing. I have tried lots of varieties of stuffing, and I have to say she makes the most delicious stuffing I have ever tasted!

      That sounds delicious! I was just looking at a list of suggestions for ingredients to add to stuffing and now I'm craving it. I might not be able to wait til Thanksgiving, might need to make a small "just because" batch next week.
