What is your favorite Thanksgiving food and why?

“I don’t really know because I just eat Asian food during Thanksgiving along with the turkey.”

“My favorite Thanksgiving food is mashed potatoes with a lot of butter because it’s unhealthy. I also like shepherd’s pie, but it’s more of an after-Thanksgiving thing because you use the leftovers to make it. Honestly, I like all kinds of foods, but because I have a Korean kind of Thanksgiving, I eat everything with kimchi. I love kimchi.”




Josephina Ko ’21

“Mashed potatoes and gravy because I like the texture and flavor combination.”

My favorite Thanksgiving food is my Dad’s ham. I do not like turkey, so I like the ham because it’s a variation.”

“Trader Joe’s pumpkin pie is the best because it isn’t like most pies where they are spicy or bitter. Trader Joe’s pies are sweet, and they are really good.”
