There are many types of delicious foods that I eat at Thanksgiving. The first item that I love to eat is the golden brown turkey. It is my favorite food on the Thanksgiving menu! Moving right along, I enjoy eating creamy mashed potatoes and gravy. My taste buds go wild over these potatoes. The last food item that I love to consume is the green bean casserole. I just love the combination of green beans and those tasty crunchy Frencher's Fried Onions. They are the bomb! All this talk about Thanksgiving foods is making me hungry!
