The dinner table report

Posted By on Thu, Nov 27, 2008 at 7:04 AM


Nearly 210 have voted so far in our Thanksgiving eats survey. It's "dressing," not stuffing, to Arkansas Blog readers. The majority -- despite the surplus of other starches -- insist on mashed potatoes, too. And if I'd included macaroni and cheese, that probably would have gotten a nod as well. (One disputatious Blog reader swears by parsnips. And she was born in Arkansas!)

Canned cranberry sauce rules. Turkey, too. Forty percent of our readers avoid the other sort of sauce on this festival day.

Check it all out here.

It's not too late to add your vote.

Here at my house: a small crowd, sorry to say. Our first without both kids. Martha and Fritz have places to go up East and I have the consolation in the spiritual vacuum of knowing that Christmas is coming. Stiill, for the smaller crowd: relish tray, turkey, Waldorf salad, green beans, stuffing and gravy, sweet potato casserole with marshmallows, creamed onions (worth the trouble), canned cranberry sauce (whole berries), yeast rolls, homemade pumpkin cheesecake, Oregon blue cheese. Beer, wine and spirits available.
