I was a fairly picky eater as a kid. At any given big meal, like Thanksgiving or at Christmas, I would only eat the main meat and some bread. The concept of a casserole or a potato that was sweet, no way.
Have you ever hosted Thanksgiving at your house? I have for several years and it is OVERWHELMING. Thank God I have my mother or else I'd just curl up in the fetal position and wouldn't come out til Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
