As Thanksgiving break rolls around the corner, students at New Haven High School were asked about their favorite Thanksgiving foods.
A poll was conducted to determine which Thanksgiving dish would rank most popular among our student body. As the results show, a large part of students stated that their favorite food was pumpkin pie. Ringing in a close second was mashed potatoes, and a close third was stuffing. More so, other students mentioned that they loved green bean casserole and macaroni and cheese with breadcrumbs on top.
Students were then asked who made the best of their favorite dish, and the answers were broad, but a majority stated that their grandmother was the best cook; however, a few honorable mentions are mothers, aunts, and siblings.
Then, students were asked what dish they couldn’t go the holiday without; senior Julia Unnerstall commented, “Turkey of course! What is Thanksgiving without it!?”
Junior Lydia Otten proclaimed, “If there is no turkey, I am not eating anything, because then it is really not a Thanksgiving meal without the turkey!”
Senior Callie Weatherly stated, “The turkey is what makes the entire meal. Yeah, normally people favor one of the side dishes, but what is Thanksgiving without the main dish?”
It’s safe to say, among the various responses recorded, students were most passionate about the importance of the turkey in a Thanksgiving feast.
Have an abundant, blessed, and turkey-filled Thanksgiving this 2018, NHHS!
