It can't be Thanksgiving without these favorites. Today I will be enjoying the first of two Thanksgiving dinners. A family favorite is the rutabaga. If you haven't tried it, it is definitely an acquired taste food. Similar to mashed potatoes, we peel boil and mash it to a thicker, chunkier consistensy than it's cousin the potato. I grew up with this instead of the common sweet potato and marshmallow casserole. I prefer my sweet potatoes cut into cubes and roasted anyway.
