The Kansas City Chiefs spent their time early on Thursday preparing for the Seattle Seahawks, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t thinking about Thanksgiving dinner that was waiting for them when they got home. Josh Looney caught up with a handful of Chiefs players before they bolted from the locker room to find out the food they were looking forward to having.
Dustin Colquitt: Broccoli Casserole
“It’s got crushed Cheeze-Its on the top and its cheesy. My mom is in town right now making it. It’s unbelievable.”
Mike Vrabel: Canned Cranberries
“The best part of the meal is the canned cranberry sauce. Nothing fancy, just right out of the can. You know, The Log. I want to see the lines around it.”
Leonard Pope: Potato Soufflé
“It’s like sweet potatoes, gravy, marshmallows and coconut all mixed up.”
Ryan Succop: Sweet Potato Pie
“You can’t go wrong with just turkey and gravy, but I really like the sweet potato pie with the marshmallows and nuts on top.”
I want to make it clear that I love different kinds of food and will try almost anything. With that being said, how does mixing potatoes, gravy, marshmallows and coconut work? Again, I would try it, but I can’t seem to wrap my head around how that is a good combination.
It wasn’t until I sat down, completely full, and saw Succop brought up sweet potatoe pie that I realized we didn’t have it on our table for the first time in my life. I’m upset I didn’t pick up on it during dinner, but it’s even more upsetting that I don’t have the option to go back and include it as part of the leftovers. Food is a serious issue and my family will know not to make that mistake again.
Here’s to hoping no one forgot to include your favorite dish for Thanksgiving!
