Everyone is a winner—some people just win better than others. Like anyone who had a brined turkey and tasty, tasty sweet potatoes yesterday. And was lucky enough to have leftovers today.
In the never-ending war between your girth and the wasitband of your pants, I assume that your expanding gut scored a major battlefield victory yesterday. We're fighting the belts at the dinner table, so that we don't have to fight for tiny seats at the movie theater. Or something.
So what was the best thing that you ate yesterday? Did your family discover some new and exciting way to sear turkey flesh? An exotic side dish involving whiskey? Did science finally reveal a way to make peas less disgusting? Share your dinnertime war stories/recipes below. The best part of the holidays are the memories of all those foods long past. Oh, and family I guess. If you're into that.
Honorable Mention: Pumpkins. Your loved ones may have been cruelly slaughtered and mashed into pie crusts, but rest assured that their sacrifice was not in vain.
