A new poll asked people what Holiday menu items they really don’t like. Not surprisingly to me, canned cranberry sauce was the big run away food item with 46% of the vote. I don’t like canned sauce myself either. Trust me when I say, make your own, it’s a thousand times better and takes 10 minutes.
Green Bean Casserole, Sweet Potatoes and Pumpkin Pie were all in a love hate relationship with people. Personally I’d much rather have sweet potatoes over white, but I know I’m in a minority there. It just wouldn’t be the holidays to me though without pumpkin pie. Gimme pumpkin EVERYTHING.
Turkey has even declined as a Holiday favorite. Again, I have to have turkey at least once during the holidays but, I understand everyone’ s dislike of the holiday bird. It’s time consuming to cook, most of the time it turns out dry and then there’s the question of what do you do with all of the left overs?
