I really like olives, and we don't have any at home. Now I'm wanting to stop and buy a jar on the way home.

SO DELICIOUS!

I like olives, but the best part of Thanksgiving dinner is seconds.

Okay, I like olives. And seconds.

But the best part of Thanksgiving is the stuffing and gravy. Anyone who pretends otherwise is a foob and a holiday heretic.

However... I never did like that green bean cassorole thing. It seems like a horrible way for a decent green bean to meet it's end! :barf2:

We are not disagreeing, Hovannes. You speak hard truths about green bean casserole, which we all need to hear.

Our local grocery store now has an olive bar in their deli. There must be 20 different kids of olives on that thing.

Yep, the best part is the stuffing with cranberry sauce (homemade - not the stuff from the can), although the olives (all kinds) are great too.

Our Homemade stuffing is the best part of Thanksgiving. An old Irish recipe coming down from my great grandmother.

and olives are great to, but I don't usually have them on Thanksgiving. Kalamata olives are the best.

+1 at our home, too. The very, very best is when we make it with homemade bread.

You guys have gotten me awfully impatient for Thursday... :)

Black olives in the stuffing are yummy too. They contrast nicely with the celery.

Our first experience with canned whipping cream when I was a kid back in the 50's: after the home made pumpkin pie was passed around, my Uncle Harry was the first to be passed the can. Everyone was eager to try the then new to us product. He carefully read the directions, shook the can, took off the cap and sprayed every adult at the table and nailed the ceiling as well :lol:
I never knew if it was an accident or not, but we laughed when the subject was brought up at Thanksgiving Feasts for years after. :lol:

We refer to deviled eggs around our house as satanic eggs. Just because it's more fun. And we top them with spicy Hungarian paprika and tiny smoked oysters.

Also, cornbread dressing rules. I like "stuffing" and I really like rice dressing (dirty rice to anyone else from Louisiana). Cornbread dressing though? Little else is as good.
