Green bean casserole SACRILEGE

As you may know, I am an avid follower of the Pioneer Woman. I love her recipes, photo advice and general wittiness. (Her book-in-progress “Black Heels to Tractor Wheels” is also a fabulously addicting tale.) However, she posted a Thanksgiving recipe today that I just cannot abide by. Soupy green bean casserole* with French fried onions is just too foundational to the Thanksgiving table to be messed Pioneer Woman. I don’t care if you add bacon (although that’s an interesting idea), you just can’t monkey with the classics like that! Pimentos? Cheddar cheese? You have got to be kidding me!

Sorry, deep breath. I just get so worked up about my holiday foods.

On a less petulant note, I am excited to try a couple recipes from Smitten Kitchen, particularly Spiced Applesauce Cake and Buckeyes (aka chocolate peanut butter ball heaven).

What are your Thanksgiving faves?


* Could it be that I’m hyper-protective of my only contribution to the Thanksgiving table?? ha!
