Thanksgiving Traditions

I saw a meme telling people not to post pictures of their food on Facebook because ‘we all eating the same things.’  And I thought, no we aren’t.

The first thanksgiving with my husband’s family revealed that their family tradition included noodles in their gravy.  Say what now?  Noodles?  In the gravy?  But you know what, it works for them.

They also do traditional candied yams with the marshmallows on top.  I only ever saw that in movies, I didn’t know people actually served them at Thanksgiving.

One of my family’s traditions?  CORN PUDDING.  This is a new one, relatively.  My mom found the recipe online, made it one year, and it stuck.  In fact, I’m in charge of it this year.

Here’s the recipe!

Corn Pudding
1 – stick of butter
1 – 8oz (cup) sour cream
1 – can whole kernel corn – drained
1 – can creamed corn
1 – box Jiffy corn muffin mix

Melt butter and stir all ingredients together. Pour into greased baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.

So what dish or side is a tradition in your household but may be different than what other folks prepare?  Comments and recipes welcome below!
