Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied.

    Interesting variations on stuffing. I can see the bread being replaced by cornbread in the South. Never heard of sausage stuffing, but it sounds good. Italian sausage of course. Polish sausage would be too garlicky for the turkey. (Great on a bun with mustard, however.)

    Can’t believe the pie,however. I’ve lived mostly in Illinois from 1945 on and I’ve never seen anyone but Southern immigrants eat Sweet Potato pie. Pumpkin! Ask Baker’s Square what they sell most of on Thanksgiving in Illinois. I don’t think they even offer Sweet Potato. It was very common in Northern Virginia, where I lived for six years in the 1970′s.however.
