MY Thanksgiving Main Course

Buttery mashed potatoes
and home-style stuffing
which cradle creamy gravy.
Turkey, move over.
Side dishes

And I am thankful for contests like this one
that lets me talk about food, wonderful, food!

    I could wallow in buttery mashed potatoes and gravy and ignore the turkey, though I never do. There's a rum-cranberry sauce I love. Dont forget home made pumpkin pie lathered with whipped or ice cream.
