Let them eat (turkey) pie
Pumpkin pie started out ahead when voting opened earlier this week, but then, ta-da, our old friend roast turkey rallied and is now leading (200 to 159 at last count).
I hope turkey wins.
What this country needs is protein (sustainably raised of course), not more sickly sweets.
Others disagree: They say: Life is short. Eat dessert first.
But what dessert is that? Did the person who coined that phrase mean pumpkin pie?
I doubt it.
We shall see what you readers decided in the end. Voting ends at 4 p.m. today, Nov. 23, Thanksgiving Eve.
Note: If you end up disappointed in the results of our Food Fight (to be posted on T-day), here is an ideal way to heal your soul: You could, it's not too late, just go ahead and decide to mix things up this year and make it an All Pie Thanksgiving.
Those crazy foodies Serious Eats actually did that just that, and the pies (and recipes) all look amazing. They made Turkey and Cranberry Pie, Green Bean Casserole Pie, Mashed Potato and Gravy Pie, Stuffing Pie, Classic Pumpkin Pie, Classic Pecan Pie and Perfect Apple Pie, too.
You could wait until your holiday is done and then make the pies with traditionally prepared leftovers, I bet.
You could freeze them for later or bring them to work to share.
Either way, you win: You get to eat pumpkin pie and roast turkey.
Thank you to everyone who join in our six rounds of Food Fight voting.
You made our first-ever bracket-style competition really, really fun.
Vote now here or below in Round 6 if you haven't yet.
