What I love about the Thanksgiving dinner is the combination of tastes. The stuffing (cornbread style, is there any other?), the sweet potatoes with marshmallows, green beans; hot rolls drenched in butter (not margarine), broccoli and rice casserole. You just can't beat that combination, can you?

Some flavors are great by themselves. Here are my favorites:
  • Black Jelly Beans
  • Black Pepper
  • Iced Tea (a strong brew with sugar. Most of the country does not know the taste of real iced tea)
  • Peanut Butter (this is what we'll all eat in Heaven)
  • Sweet Onions
  • Cilantro
  • Bull's Eye spicy hot barbecue sauce.
  • Hominy
  • Dorothy's cinnamon rolls

Then there are certain food that when combined are just delicious for me. I have trouble stopping when I start eating:

  • Beans and cornbread, then add fresh diced onion.
  • Tacos (lettuce, cheese, tortilla, meat, hot sauce, oh boy!)
  • Spaghetti with meat sauce and toasted french bread.
  • Peanut butter and jelly sandwich
  • Tuna sandwich and french fries

I think I'll stop this post. I ate a small breakfast in anticipation of a big dinner, so my blood sugar must be low because thoughts of food keep popping into my head. I'll go get ready to eat. Have a great Thanksgiving.

I love chicken fried steak with biscuits & apricot/jalapeno jam. Or mashed potatoes w/cream of corn. Or Kettle corn w/hot chocolate. Ok...I've got to stop now. =P

That does sound good. Dorothy had enough hot roll dough left over to make a pan of cinnamon rolls. I hope I survive.

The cornbread and beans combo is one I hardly ever have, but when I do I always say I've got to have it more often. PB&J should be on fresh white sandwich bread, evenj if it is no good for you, to be truly enjoyable,

I agree about the white bread. Try this on a pb&j: put potato chips between the bread with the peanut butter and jelly. Also, If the peanut butter doesn't stick to the roof of your mouth, you didn't spread on enough.
