Would You Rather – Thanksgiving Edition
Back in September, I had a “Which Would You Choose” type post – the fall edition – which was fun. I enjoyed everyone’s opinions and thought I would do something similar thinking about Thanksgiving. However, the “this or that” options were pretty standard. Turkey or Ham? Stuffing or Dressing? Mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes? And, of course, pumpkin pie or pecan pie? Not super exciting – but, just for the record: no meat for me, please (I honestly do like Tofu Turkey! I know, I know. It sounds rather unappetizing but it is actually quite tasty!); dressing for sure (again, not stuffing any bird around here!); sweet potatoes for this girl (and mashed potatoes for my husband); and, as for pie, I think pecan pie – if I was going to eat pie. I can take it or leave it (so I usually leave it).
Since that “game” was not especially interesting, I thought I would share some good old-fashioned “Would You Rather” questions. Just for some fun….as we turn all our thoughts towards next week! Before we begin, I would love to know – are you ready? I have heard so many friends say that they just cannot believe Thanksgiving is only one week away. They have lots of shopping, planning, and prepping to do. One more reason I am grateful for our “out to dinner” tradition. I love Thanksgiving (it is my favorite holiday) and I’m so glad that it is not stressful but simply enjoyable!! So, those of you making your menu and checking it twice – are you going traditional with all your favorites or will there be any new dishes or recipes on the table?? Let me know in the comments. And, let’s share some silly Thanksgiving fun. My answers are in orange.
Would You Rather…..
Rake and bag leaves on Christmas or Shovel snow on Thanksgiving – I don’t want to shovel snow on any day. At all. I am not a snow girl and snow on Thanksgiving would be plain miserable!
Have your entire meal with no seasonings or Have every dish oversalted – kinda tricky but unseasoned food is just the worst. Why bother?
Have only appetizers or Have only desserts? No contest!
Go sledding or Go ice skating? Both are winter sports and not really my thing but ice skating really can be fun! I used to be quite good at skating. Used to be.
Clean and prep the turkey or Empty and carve a pumpkin? Pumpkin…obviously:)
Eat cranberry sauce or Eat candied yams? Ok, this one was tough. I went with the cranberry sauce but, I will admit, not all cranberry condiments and side dishes are created equal. But when it is good, it is very, very good!!
Have your birthday always land on Thanksgiving or Christmas? It wouldn’t bother me at all to have a Christmas birthday.
Cook Thanksgiving dinner or Clean up after dinner? I’m sure for many years I would have chosen to cook but, in this season of life, having someone else do all the cooking would be a lovely treat! And I really do not mind restoring order to the kitchen:)
Eat dinner at the kid’s table or Eat dinner at the grown-up’s table? No commentary necessary:)
Let me know what you think! And, here’s to a productive week before next Thursday!!
