Favorite Foods in the Good ole USA...

Americans love food and they have their favorites...

We got hamburgers, pizza, fried chicken, tacos, ribs, egg rolls, sushi, and we got wings. We've even got salad as in 'salad bar'. Have you got the appetite?
What is interesting as you scroll down the list is the diversity of food in America (see link below). We notice some ethnic foods, some healthy foods (Alaskan Salmon), some quirky foods (Twinkies) and some basic foods (bread) traditional American foods (cheeseburger, apple pie and chocolate chip cookies) all of which bring us to the number one ~ Thanksgiving dinner.

...the quintessential all-American meal of turkey (roasted or deep-fried bird, or tofurkey, or that weirdly popular Louisiana contribution turducken), dressing (old loaf bread or cornbread, onion and celery, sausage, fruit, chestnuts, oysters -- whatever your mom did, the sage was the thing), cranberry sauce, mashed and sweet potatoes, that funky green bean casserole with the French-fried onion rings on top, and pumpkin pie. Almost as iconic (and if you ask most kids, as delicious) is the turkey TV dinner, the 1953 brainchild of a Swanson salesman looking to use up 260 overestimated tons of frozen birds. No joke: He got the idea, he said, from tidily packaged airplane food. We do love those leftovers.
