Friends of ours are Italian, and have a casserole of lasgna with their turkey and fixings. Our fmily dds deviled eggs to the spread. In truth, it's very personal fmily holiday and each family has it's own traditions.

I don't know, Electralyte -- I suspect he never heard of it at all!

no, he never heard of it as a Thanksgiving day food. I hadn't either until this year and I'm 61 years old.
Everyone has their traditions. I knew people that had to have shrimp salad that day.

I get the feeling that if someone sat a bowl of Mac & Cheese in front of him, they'd return only to find him licking and scraping it...pretty sad that in his 100 yrs of existence he has never heard of it...I get the feeling he was lying about that...he must not watch tv because he would have seen the commercial at least...what an old fart he is...lol

I speak from particular experience, because you didn't grow up Catholic when I did without eating a LOT of mac and cheese on Fridays. I've become a devotee -- I don't eat it often but I totally love it when I do.

Mine would be in seventh heaven too Electralyte..but then, they're South Asian..any dark skin counts, right?
LMBO..what a dweebRobertson is..but his comment explains a WHOLE lot. He's never had mac and cheese! Deprived throughout childhood and adulthood poor thang, It's turned him into a critical ugly natured bigot, this deprivation! His dendrites have failed to develope along normal pathways. This here frecklefaced Irish American Grammy considers mac and cheese food for the Gods..he never got any..awww..

really? I never had mac n cheese for Thanksgiving. I think I heard about that tradition for the first time on food network this year.
My grand kids would like that tradition, but then they are black. emoticon
