I am thankful for . . .
1) Sour cream with its smooth sensation. I enjoy it with barbeque potato chips.
2) Hamburger - the man of eats! I will travel for a good burger.
3) Cereal - a sugary and crunchy texture that's addicting.
4) Hot dogs - a long protein of goodness
5) Potatoes - It does not matter: white, sweet, fried, baked, etc.
6) Peanuts - How else are we going to make peanut butter?
7) Macaroni & Cheese - Pure comfort! 
8) Bread - Though basic, I will take any type.
9) Apples - They do not keep the doctor away, but they are still a healthy choice. I cannot image the world without them.
10) Chocolate - Dark, strong, and satisfying

What food item(s) should I add to this list? 

Happy Thanksgiving from The Food Temptress!
