Now before you "fungus" lovers start giving me a hard time, I just want to go on record saying that I love mushrooms and always have, but when it comes to Thanksgiving I just don't think "mushrooms".

I have loved mushrooms since I was a kid. I remember going to Bonanza Steakhouse and getting a steak with their special mushroom gravy...it was the best! But for turkey day, eh mushrooms are not high on my list...especially stuffed mushrooms.

When I think of Thanksgiving "side dishes" the first things that pop into my mind are stuffing mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce...but that's just me. According to a new survey though, t5he first thing New Jersey residents think of is "stuffed mushrooms"? what ... did I miss the memo? I don't think I have ever had "stuffed mushrooms" on Thanksgiving. They are delicious, but not a turkey day fav for me...how about you?

According to a new survey from Zippia.com the Garden State loves "stuffed mushrooms" as their favorite side dish. This is based on their survey using stats from "google trends".

As I look at our neighboring states I think I agree more with them. Pennsylvania loves stuffing, New York loves sweet potatoes and Connecticut loves mashed potatoes. Now, these side dishes I can go with, but not New Jersey's stuffed mushrooms.

So what do YOU think? is this your choice for Thanksgiving here in New Jersey...I want a recount! lol

 

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
