Plate numero uno (Panama Jackson)

Editor’s note: All of this food tastes better at my house than at your house, but ya know, rock rock on.

This list was made in conjunction with my family. Several items were hotly contested and debated.

10. Red Velvet Cake

This ain’t nothing but love in a pan.

9. Turkey

Everybody ain’t able on the day-after turkey, though; it’s important to know who cooked that bird in the first place.

8. Pasta Salad

Only if made by the hands of my family. None of y’all’s people’s food counts here.

7. Sweet Potatoes

If you even think about bringing some pumpkin anything ’round my way, just perish. Panama says just perish.

6. Rolls

That day-after microwave softness is real. Microwave softness is also what Lord Jamar calls today’s hip-hop scene.

5. Jiffy Cornbread

Fight me, bro.

4. Collard Greens

Even Shirley Caesar knows what’s up here.

3. Dressing

Not that stuffing bullshit some of you swear is a thing—it’s not.

2. Ham

Some of you don’t eat pork. That’s cool.

1. Macaroni and Cheese

This assumes that you still have any left. You probably don’t.
