What’s the Weirdest Thanksgiving Food You’ve Ever Had?

When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of the food staples: turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing (my favorite), sweet potatoes; you know, typical Thanksgiving cuisine.  However, I’m sure we’ve all gone to someone else’s house for Thanksgiving one year, and seen food we never expected to see on that particular day.  I know I have!

A few years ago, my fiance Robyn and I spent Thanksgiving with Robyn’s aunt and her family.  I knew things were going to be a little different, seeing as how they’re vegetarians.  Surprisingly, they made a turkey for their guests; but there was a spread of other foods I’d never seen before.

The one I remember the most vividly (because of how good it tasted) was called a “campana;” at least, I think that’s what it was called.  It was basically a layered pasta dish, much like lasagna.  The difference was, it was prepared and cooked in a large bowl, then flipped upside down and slid out of the bowl like a big Italian jello mold! (It didn’t quite slide out of the bowl like it was supposed to, but it was still good; even with the vegetarian meatballs!)

So, what’s the most unusual Thanksgiving dish you’ve ever seen?
