The Ultimate Food Fight

There is an significant ideological schism between the two sides. Neither group is inherently good or bad, just different. The winning team would be the one that could create the biggest wallop and potentially herald in a period of conciliation without either side feeling cheated.

So now, ladies and gentlemen, the time has come to announce the winner of this great debate. Will it be the ubiquitous russet potato or the holiday favorite, the sweet potato?

And the winner is…

    Amongst we all who get together, we have both. But I can do without the sweet potatoes at the other meal that is often a repeat of thanksgiving day later in the year — while a sweet potato is, I’m pretty sure, an American food and is, as such, appropriate to include at “Thanksgiving” in November.
