The fun of Thanksgiving dinners is often in the side dishes. Turkey is always a must, but every family does their side dishes a little differently. Whether it is the cranberry sauce, peas and carrots or stuffing, each family adds their own twist to the classics. Since Thanksgiving break is around the corner, we went around campus and asked what side dishes are people most looking forward to in their Thanksgiving meal.
Derek Schear, Finance, Stern
“Stuffing…It’s hearty, tasty, salty…I don’t know, who doesn’t like stuffing?”
Pilar Muller, Chemistry, CAS
“I’m foreign, so I don’t do Thanksgiving.”
So if you were to do a Thanksgiving dinner, what would you want as a side dish?
“Probably baked potato with bacon bits and sour cream.”
Hamin Lee, Music Education, Steinhardt
“Yams. With marshmallows melted on top.”
Is that a special family recipe?
“Yes, my mom makes the mashed sweet potato first. Then, she bakes it with marshmallow on top. It may not be the healthiest food in the world, but it is so good.”
Jiexi Sun & Shaohan Zhou, Integrated Marketing, Stern
“Mashed potato with gravy.”
“Stuffing. The ones in Vermont are the best.”
