Corn

I didn't have corn at Thanksgiving. Had I imagined that there would not be corn, I could have brought it; I always have a dozen cans of corn sitting around. Who has Thanksgiving without corn?

To me, it's as much a part of Thanksgiving as turkey and mashed potatoes. But, I guess corn isn't as big of a deal outside of Nebraska...

Actually, in my family we always had corn with the Thanksgiving meal. But than again, I know for a fact that my family was not normal by any stretch of the imagination. After all, I never had bread stuffing until I was about 19 years old. Traditionally, my mother always stuffed the turkey with a meat stuffing.

I think my family threw out the stuffing because no one wanted it, or didn't stuff the turkey at all, or something. I don't actually ever remember stuffing at the Thanksgiving table until college or so. It always looked so gross, so I never tried any. The first time I actually tasted stuffing was with a turkey TV dinner that I bought a couple years ago out here.

I was also disappointed by a lack of corn at our Thanksgiving. I went through the line and didn't spot it. I moved over to the stove area, thinking it might be hiding. Apparently green bean casserole, which is one of the worst Thanksgiving dishes ever, was in place of corn.

I wonder if someone took some green bean casserole once long ago, thinking it was stuffing, and thus ever since then people have been making it because they thought that it was something that humans typically eat.
