Tuesday FTB: Dealing with that post-Thanksgiving food hangover

Ranking the traditional Thanksgiving dishes from best to worst,

What a nice weekend.

The Toronto Maple Leafs won, Leafs fans are still filling their diapers about it because they won due to Nick Shore, Dmytro Timashov, Frederick Gauthier, Alexander Kerfoot, Ilya Mikheyev and Trevor Moore instead of their top 2 lines or something, we had beautiful weather, and we got to consume a gross amount of food.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, there’s always a debate about the best parts of the dinner. I am here to put the debates to rest. Notes: I know there are tons of different variations for what foods different people include, and I can’t possibly know all of them. I am therefore confining this list to the “traditional” list of dishes to include. Second, I will assume that each dish was prepared well, not poorly, so your takes about badly cooked turkey or potato soup instead of mashed potatoes need not apply.

#1 - Stuffing, and it’s not even close.

#2 - Pumpkin pie

#3 - Turkey

#4 - Gravy

#5 - Green beans and/or corn (as long as it’s not creamed corn... yuck)

#6 - Dinner rolls

#7 - Mashed potatoes

#8 - Whatever sweet potato dish you think is traditional

#999999 - Cranberry sauce

There, I’ve settled it. Now tell me all the reasons why you have different opinions that are wrong in the comments.
