I’ve been to plenty of Thanksgiving dinners in my time and I unno, there’s just nothing like arriving to a house and seeing 3 or 4 huge pans of baked mac n cheese waiting to be demolished by a pack of hungry family members. Everyone likes Mac n Cheese and if they don’t they’re probably lame and I wouldn’t want to sit next them or across from them while I’m eating. I’m from the south, Savannah, GA & a little ass town in Texas and everyone makes baked mac n cheese…it’s a given. Sure I’ve seen Green Bean Casserole on a table or two, but I’ve never seen anyone fawning over it or being particularly upset if there wasn’t any, lol.
I’m not actually sure anyone cares if there’s no green bean casserole at the table…
Heck, the folks that brought over the casserole probably made it from some nasty can of cream of mushroom goop and added some Jolly Green Giant string beans and some crispy onion stuff from another can…and they are definitely the first people digging the damn spoon into the mac n cheese to make sure they get some!
Check out the little white girl above, you know why she’s mad? Check out the dog above, you know why he’s mad???
She’s mad because by the time the grown ups were done serving themselves, all that was left over was her moms funky green bean casserole and now her Thanksgiving is TRASHED. thx mawm!
He’s mad cuz now he knows he’s gonna have to eat the fuckin’ green bean casserole that’s leftover since nobody wanted to eat the shit and his owners are def not gonna just throw it out…
Green bean casserole, smh…just who do you think you are bringing over that canned disaster to my favorite holiday dinner…shame. You are ruining the lives of people and animals alike, save that shit, don’t make that shit — or if you’re gonna make it, stay home with that shit and keep it company!
Want a good recipe for baked mac n cheese?! Paula Deen’s recipe is below…you know she can cook her ass off and you know on Turkey Day she is gonna throw down til she’s good n tired — and even then she’s gonna fall asleep with a plate of Mac n Cheese in her hand…
Sorry, had to rant a little bit, lol.
