From Least To Feast, 7 Thanksgiving Dishes That You Should Be Thankful For

Thanksgiving is coming up and we can all pretend that the holiday is about being thankful and whatnot, but let's be real for a moment, it's all about the food.

I mean, as far as holidays go, there is no other holiday that focuses more on the aspect of food than the way Thanksgiving does, however, there are some Thanksgiving staples that are just inherently better than others.

7. Gravy

OK, I love condiments probably more than the next person. No joke, I hoard Chick-fil-A sauce.

But for some reason, gravy and I do not mix.

I know people love to drench their turkey and mashed potatoes under a thick layer of gravy, but I am not this person. I don't know what it is exactly about gravy that rubs me the wrong way, but it just doesn't taste good to me.

6. Turkey 


Although the turkey may be the face of Thanksgiving, I must say, it is not the best dish of the holiday.

For some reason, turkey is always dry.

This is not an insult to my mom's cooking skills because the rest of my family loves her turkey, but, for some reason, it always tastes dry to me.

Granted, I eat turkey without gravy since I'm not a big fan of gravy, as stated above, but turkey should not have to rely on gravy to make it good.

It should be able to hold its own by itself.

5. Cranberry Sauce


Cranberry sauce from a can is the only acceptable form of cranberry sauce. End of story.

4. Stuffing

All forms of bread are amazing and that definitely includes stuffing.

Whether you make it from scratch or using the pre-made, Stove Top box, it is all good.

2. Pumpkin Pie


I'm not even that big of a pie person, but I think pumpkin pie is absolutely amazing.

Unlike most pies, which only taste great when they're warmed, pumpkin pie can be eaten at any temperature, making it that much more superior to other pies.

1. Mashed Potatoes

Last but certainly not least, the best Thanksgiving dish of all, mashed potatoes.

A Thanksgiving meal without mashed potatoes would be the saddest meal ever. You need to have mashed potatoes on your plate.

It is the best dish and in my opinion, easily the star of the Thanksgiving meal.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
