I'd like to wish everyone a great Turkey Day. It's by far my favorite holiday because it usually gets the whole family together and it involves delicious, delicous food. Honestly, is there a better meal? I think it's just the right mix of textures. The soft, melt-in-your-mouth sweet potatoes, the juicy, tender turkey, the sweet sensation of cranberries popping in your mouth; it's all so good.

My favorite is easily the cranberries. Since I was little I was eating cranberries, but it used to be only Ocean Spray's Jellied Cranberry Sauce. I pretty much only ate that and hot dogs for 3 years straight. Odd, I know.

My deep love for those perfect, crimson fruits is the reason I became disappointed in Americans after reading this Gallop Poll.* Apparently, only 2% of American say cranberries are their favorite and 21% say it's their least favorite. Unbelievable. I now understand that this country hasn't gone to crap because of our president, but because we can't recognize culinary perfection.

Anywho, enjoy your meal, regardless of your favorite dish.
