Barry Whatilow?

OK...I haven't posted in a while. I've been busy....sorry. I could say the wampus has been closed for re-design...but it would only be polishing a turd.

My mother-in-law makes a dish that is tradition in her family that started out with the name Berry-Mallow Casserole. Then somehow it started sounding like, yes, you guessed it...."Barry Manilow". It's a pretty amazing dish, actually. My wife's jaw will be hurting from hitting the floor after reading this because it took me 3 years just to put that particular food to my lips. Can you imagine eating something called "Barry Manilow"? You take yams, cranberries, brown sugar, oatmeal and marshmallows and put them together. (I'm not allowed to divuldge the family recipe.) But that sounds like a decent dish, huh? "but it's called 'Barry Manilow'!" Stop arguing with yourself and try it, ya sissy.

Year three, I tasted it. Year four, I put a serving on my plate. Year 5, I had seconds and then stood over the dish picking at it. Well......I'm a convert........BRING ON THE MANILOW!

Enjoy the slideshow of all the food from this year's Thanksgiving!
