Thanksgiving Burnout in Louisiana: Which Dishes Are We Over?
What dishes are you over seeing on your Thanksgiving dinner table, Louisiana? We asked and here are a few of things we'd like to skip this year.
What Thanksgiving dishes are Louisiana residents over?
Brussels sprouts, I don’t eat Brussels sprouts! I also don’t eat lima beans. Ew! I distinctly remember trying to get the dog to eat the vegetables I didn't like by dropping them on the floor as a kid. Yes, I grew up in one of those clean-your-plate homes. I felt vindicated when even the dog wouldn't eat the Brussels sprouts... even though that meant I was stuck with them!
It turns out I'm not the only one to have an aversion to several big hearty Thanksgiving-like meal items. I turned to Facebook to find out what you won't eat and you were quite forthcoming! Which, when you think about it, is pretty ironic since most folks in Louisiana can really throw down in the kitchen. Here are a few of the things we hate to see pop up on the Thanksgiving table here in Louisiana:
I don't eat mushrooms, beets, avocados, or cranberry sauce.
D Peter Maus
I don't eat canned asparagus. Everything else is on the table.
Brussels sprouts or sweet potatoes
Beets, onions, tomatoes, lettuce... this list could get long.
Cranberry sauce and Pumpkin Pie
Jean Marie Gaffney Boddie
Cranberry sauce or pecan pie
Cranberries. Zip. At all. Nadda
Maggie D. Gilcrease
At the risk of being excommunicated from the South, I do not eat pecan pie.
