Some even salivate as their eyes pass over imaginary potatoes and gravy, buttered rolls, sweet potatoes and green bean casserole. A few even dare to tempt daydreams of freshly baked pumpkin pie being pulled out of the oven and hopefully put into their tummies. Whatever that personal Thanksgiving favorite is, it seems crucial it be at the Thanksgiving dinner table in order to fulfill that perfect food dream. So if you were a food at your Thanksgiving table, what would you be?
