The Most Underrated Thanksgiving Foods


BUT STAY SAFE WHILE RIDING When you think of Thanksgiving food, the first dishes that pop into your mind are probably turkey, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole. They’re a part of nearly every Thanksgiving meal. And while these delicious foods are something you don’t want to skip, there are dishes your table is sorely missing — dishes that don’t get the respect they truly deserve. This Thanksgiving, why not take a look at a few other options? Soup This is one dish that rarely hits the Thanksgiving table. But try a butternut squash or broccoli cheddar soup and you’ll be surprised just how “at home” it feels among the rest of your spread. It’s perfect to serve ahead of the main course, as the final touches are put on the turkey, or when the green bean casserole needs a few more minutes in the oven. Brussels sprouts These tiny greens often get overlooked during Thanksgiving, but with the right accompaniment, they can make for an extremely tasty and nutritious dish. For example, try roasting halved Brussels sprouts with dried cranberries and bacon, drizzled with a raspberry balsamic vinaigrette. There’s something about seeing a motorcycle on the silver screen that gets the blood pumping. The second you see the rider throw back on the throttle, you know the movie is about to take a wild turn. Maybe it’s the two wheels or perhaps it’s the open cockpit. Regardless, there’s an undeniable appeal to seeing our favorite stars mount a bike and take off. With that in mind, here are three of the most iconic motorcycles in all of cinema. ‘Easy Rider’ When you hear the name “Captain America,” you probably think of the leader of the Avengers. But those of us who are a little older think of one of the most iconic motorcycles of all time. The stars and stripes of Peter Fonda’s custom Harley-Davidson Hydra Glide are hard to forget. If the long fork and American flag gas tank aren’t enough, the matching red, white, and blue helmet is sure to put you in a patriotic mood. ‘Tron Legacy’ If you’ve never seen Sam Flynn zip by at 103 mph, then you haven’t fallen in love with a Ducati Sport 1000 just yet. Just like Peter Fonda in “Easy Rider,” the bike from “Tron Legacy” has inspired countless youth to take to the streets on two wheels. With its athletic frame and Italian lines, it’s not hard to understand why this bike has cultivated a following. While

Sausage Put a creative spin on your traditional Thanksgiving dishes and try using sausage in the stuffing. An Italian sausage, for instance, adds a kick of flavor to any stuffing, homemade or from the box. You can also experiment with other kinds of sausage to find the flavors that best complement your stuffing. Use a sweet sausage when you need something to pair with a stuffing that incorporates apples. Cranberry sauce This Thanksgiving staple rarely gets the attention it deserves. While it’s easy to buy a can of cranberry sauce, you do your guests a culinary disservice by going this route. Instead, make your own cranberry sauce. There are many recipes online, and all you need are some fresh or frozen cranberries, orange juice, and sugar to make the best cranberry sauce of your life.

Fall in Love With Motorcycles From the Movies

you may picture light cycles and classic arcade games when you think of “Tron,” take one look at this beauty and you’ll understand why this real-world motorcycle stole the show.

‘The Great Escape’ Perhaps one of the most memorable scenes in cinematic history involves a 1961 Triumph TR6 Trophy Bird. Steve McQueen is famous for doing his own stunts, but when you see the German troops surround him on all sides in “The Great Escape” and witness his getaway motorcycle jump, it’s hard not to be impressed. It’s a famous scene, but what most don’t realize is it wasn’t McQueen who made the jump in real life. Due to insurance issues, stuntman Bud Ekins hit the grassy berm and went flying over the barbed wire fence. While motorcycles are a beautiful expression of freedom, they are also dangerous. Many drivers fail to see smaller vehicles on the road, and with distracted driving on the rise, this situation has the potential to worsen.
