Throw It In The Trash

It's that time of year again where we gather with friends and family over a plate of food. Be thankful for what we have and the people in our lives. As we gather to pass down family recipes, watch football, play cards and look for Black Friday deals.

We also should have some serious discussions about some traditional Thanksgiving dishes that absolutely postively belong in the trash. Through my own personal taste and talking to people I know. I've compiled a list of Thanksgiving dishes you really shouldn't put on your plate. Maybe even better just dont bothering cooking it. This list has no particular ranking.

Green Bean Casserole

I love green beans or as our culture still call them "string beans". I've never had green bean casserole though, but a few people I asked ranked that on the list as trash worthy. Looking at the recipe the green beans are the centerpiece with cream of mushroom soup and frenched fried onions as the other ingredients. Doesn't sound or by the photo look very appetizing at all, and based on what I've heard I'll stay away from it.

Pumpkin Pie

Once late August/early September hits you see pumpkin everything. Pumpkin spiced drinks, pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin lattes. Even pumpkin flavored candles, then fast forward to Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie is available in abundance. If I'm ever somewhere and a plate is handed to me with a slice of pumpkin pie is on it. I hope I'm not disrespecting anyone at the gathering who made it when I immediately toss it in the trash.
