Monthly Debate - November

Elyse Prestopnik and Avery Cotten

Do you like Thanksgiving food?

Elyse: I don’t really like Thanksgiving food. Some of them aren’t bad… some of them are. I don’t like Turkey, just the taste of it is weird. Mashed potatoes are okay as long as they are really really good, but I don’t really like the texture of them. I have never liked pumpkin pie, I don’t really know why, it might be the fact that I don’t really like any pies. It has grown on me though, over the years. My favorite Thanksgiving food that isn’t very common is peanut butter pie. Even though I don’t like the food, I still like Thanksgiving. 


Avery: I love Thanksgiving food. There are so many different flavors and eating it always reminds me of home and my family. My family always makes super complicated dinners with turkey (of course), mashed potatoes, ossobuco, gremolata, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, etc. We also eat 3-4 different dinners and every time I get to see people I haven’t seen for a long time. Every time I eat anything we have at Thanksgiving, the taste reminds me of my family and it makes me feel all warm and happy.
