While not everyone has turkey for Thanksgiving, it is the #1 main dish for the food feast holiday. The big difference comes in when it comes to side dishes. I'm sure they vary greatly as one moves about the country.

We decided to see what side dishes people in this area prefer, and boy do you guys like cornbread dressing! For the most part, our tastes around here are pretty much the same as they would be in most of the country.

The only surprise was the number of people who mentioned alcohol! I guess if you have to spend an entire day in the kitchen, the occasional drink might be required!
