I'm probably a little different than some when it comes to the meat. On Thanksgiving I prefer ham. The turkey to me is better as leftovers, especially as hot turkey and gravy sandwiches. However I have to have certain side dishes on Thanksgiving: dressing made with pork sausage and apples, cooked turnips, cranberry sauce with actual cranberries in it, and of course the mashed potatoes and gravy. I am also the one person in the house who likes mincemeat pie.
