Thanksgiving used to be my favorite holiday for many reasons. A few being it's a holiday solely centered around eating as much food as you can and there's wine... lots and lots of wine! Haha But one day my mom thought it would be a great idea to tell me how many calories are in a Thanksgiving dinner and it has scarred me for life. For your sake I won't tell you!

But we all know that not all Thanksgiving food is created equal! I've rated the standard foods found at a typical "Wren family" Thanksgiving from best to worst! Enjoy!

    I love any and all rolls! But if I were to pick a favorite I would pick my grandma's every time! This is why I've always been the favorite grandchild!

    Apple Pie

    While apple pie is definitely delicious... it can't compete with the food above. #SorryNotSorry

    I've never actually tried green bean casserole but it looks disgusting.

    Cranberry Sauce

    Does anyone actually eat this stuff?! I feel like it's just there to add some color to the table...
