A cheesy winner

Thanksgiving has quickly passed, but the holiday season is in full swing. There’s often food to bring people together in celebration and giving thanks.

The Spectator Newsletter ran a poll asking what your favorite part of a Thanksgiving meal is. The selection was among the most common dishes including turkey, ham, mac and cheese, dressing, and pumpkin pie.

This poll ran in the newsletter for two weeks with mac and cheese and dressing fighting to win. Out of 128 votes, Mac and cheese with 39 votes won just passing dressing at 38 votes. Ham came in third at 22 votes, pumpkin pie 16 votes, and the icon of Thanksgiving, the turkey, came in last place with 13 votes.

What was your favorite dish from Thanksgiving this year? Let us know!

    “What was your favorite dish from Thanksgiving this year?”

    Allow me to answer in the form of a poem:

    I look around at this bountiful feast.
    I gaze upon the roasted beasts.
    I see there’s mac and cheese at least.
    But where is that dish?

    I know I gave them all the hints
    I don’t detect it among the scents
    I lament this table’s bland contents
    Where’s the Swedish Fish
