The forgotten Thanksgiving side dish

Thanksgiving sides mac cheese

How was YOUR Thanksgiving? Mine was GREAT. Up until the moment I realized something was missing from the menu. Something VERY important. Now, I realize everyone does their Thanksgiving menu a little different, but for the most part, it’s a lot of the same things. We had turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, rolls, sweet potato pie, etc. – I mean we had it all. OR SO I THOUGHT….


Wait a sec……what’s this? NO MAC N CHEESE?!?! Blasphemy!! And you know what my mom’s excuse was? “That’s more of a Christmas side dish.” Whaaaaaaaaatt? I couldn’t believe my eyes. Literally everything on the menu BUT that cheesy goodness. What a shame. Now I know that if I want mac n cheese at Thanksgiving next year, I’ll have to make it myself. Which is totally fine! But DAMN! What a bummer. I had thought about mac n cheese for DAYS before that, too lol. That’s like thinking about leftovers in your fridge all day, only to come home and find out that someone ate them. Just sad haha.


Now, don’t get me wrong. It was a LOVELY meal spent with the people I love most. But can you imagine how much better the day would have been with mac n cheese in my belly?? Ha! Happy Holidays!
