Ah, Thanksgiving! It’s one of the most anticipated holidays of the year and marks the start of the holiday season that involves eating lots of turkey for dinner. Now, we might talk about the deeper meaning of Thanksgiving, but let’s face it, most of us are after one thing and one thing only: stuffing our beautiful faces with delicious home-cooked meals!
Crispy oven-baked bird meat, roasted golden potato-thingies, steaming stuffing, bucketloads of gravy, delicious cranberry sauce, and grandma’s Thanksgiving pie. Mmm-mmmmm! It can’t get better than this. One person who agrees with the importance of cooking is Imgur user Interstellarbootybounce who couldn’t help themselves and created a whole bunch of memes about their love of Thanksgiving food, involving Imhotep from ‘The Mummy.’
After you read this article, go have a look through Bored Panda’s post about people sharing weird Thanksgiving recipes. Let’s just hope they don’t ruin your appetite.
One internet user loves Thanksgiving food so much, they made these memes
The Imgur user’s memes are simple but made us smile and reminded us of a time long-past when similar memes were considered to be the epitome of good humor. It’s a real blast from the past.
Even more so when you realize that ‘The Mummy’ was released in 1999. That was 20 years ago, even though it feels like just a few years ago for some of us. [Panics that time’s passing too quickly and eats some leftover turkey to calm down]
The New York Times took a very interesting approach to Thanksgiving dinner and broke it down to its essential elements. Naturally, you have the essentials like turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, as well as potatoes in some form or other.
But there are other essentials, too. Such as pie (or rather pies because one’s never enough!), some sort of ‘green and snappy’ vegetable, and ‘something orange.’ That something orange can be yams, squash, or even mac and cheese. What I wouldn’t do for some mac and cheese now. [‘Accidentally’ gains 30 lbs]
