Make fun of me for writing about food all you want; Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because I love food.  I never had pumpkin pie till I married my wife and it’s a loving relationship that I have cherished for 34 years now.   Both the wife and the pie, but mostly the pie.  Reporting from yahoo.com put out a list of favorite Thanksgiving side dishes by state and I was curious about what New England prefers.  Here is the breakdown, which yahoo.com writes about based on a study by Zippia which used google trends to find our favorites.
