I really love food. My favorite Thanksgiving foods are cranberries, classic green bean casserole, and especially cornbread dressing. Oh, and I love pumpkin pie. Turkey? Eh, I will eat the breast meat. My favorite Thanksgiving family story involves green bean casserole. I make it with Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup and French's French Fried Onion Rings -- the recipe off the onion rings can. I am not a gourmet cook and not afraid of "cream of" soups. When my first grandchild, Mason, was about 2 or 3 he was at my home the day after Thanksgiving. I dragged out all of the leftovers from my fridge and had them on the counter. Day old green bean casserole still tastes good but it tends to look a little gray and unattractive after a day or two in the fridge. I picked up my grandson and was showing him the food, asking him what he wanted me to put on his plate. When he saw that grayish green bean casserole he made these huge "precious moments" shaped sad eyes and said "OHHhhh, my momma told me NEVAH put that in my mouth." We have no idea where he got that or what he thought it was. (and that word up there is "never" -- he had trouble pronouncing his R's)
