If I were to order, I think the food would come as you mentioned, as a single course.  In my case, (turkey and cranberries) with a side of veggies (sliced tomatoes) a small bowl of the cream of chicken soup, your choice of potato (Southern Style, whatever that is) choice of dessert, (pineapple pie?) and a glass of milk to wash it all down with.  Yes, a nice big meal, but well worth the 50 cents when considering the value of money back in those days.  (Don't forget the ten cent tip.)  Nice tune.

Popular at Thanksgiving that is coming up. Basic recipe is sweet potatoes, butter, marshmallows, and brown-sugar. Basically take what is a healthy vegetable and make unhealthy- but tasty!

I must have some odd gene or something, but as much as I love potatoes, I've never been able to eat sweet potatoes.  As a kid I would eat the marshmallow topping but that's as far as I would go with them.

I will eat but like you don't particularly like. I don't have a sweet-tooth. Give me another helping of that prime rib, and mashed potatoes and gravy, and skip dessert and the sweet potatoes, especially when made more sweet "Southern Style." Likewise unsweet tea, not sweet tea, for me in summer. You aren't alone, the gene-pool is large.

He would've been a good interview with Art.
