Brussels sprouts, I don’t eat Brussels sprouts! I also don’t eat lima beans. Ew! I distinctly remember trying to get the dog to eat the vegetables I didn't like by dropping them on the floor as a kid. Yes, I grew up in one of those clean-your-plate homes. I felt vindicated when even the dog wouldn't eat the Brussels sprouts... even though that meant I was stuck with them!

It turns out I'm not the only one to have an aversion to several big hearty Thanksgiving-like meal items. I turned to Facebook to find out what you won't eat and you were quite forthcoming! Which, when you think about it, is pretty ironic since most folks in Louisiana can really throw down in the kitchen. Here are a few of the things we hate to see pop up on the Thanksgiving table here in Shreveport-Bossier:

Tiffani Walker
I don't eat mushrooms, beets, avocados, or cranberry sauce.

D Peter Maus
I don't eat canned asparagus. Everything else is on the table.

Cherie Ash
Brussels sprouts or sweet potatoes

John Pumilio
Cranberry Sauce

Patrick Crawford
Beets, onions, tomatoes, lettuce... this list could get long.

Racheal Hawkins-Cox
Stuffing/dressing yuck

Trey Lankford
Cranberry sauce and Pumpkin Pie

Jean Marie Gaffney Boddie
Cranberry sauce or pecan pie

Rick Shelton
Cranberries. Zip. At all. Nadda

Maggie D. Gilcrease
At the risk of being excommunicated from the South, I do not eat pecan pie.
