Sufferin' succotash

Dec 1, 2010

This past holiday weekend I was thankful for my family being adopted for Thanksgiving dinner and being included in this most delicious American tradition of eating turkey with all the fixins'.  I got to try some luscious stuffing, gravy and succotash. Until last Thursday, my Australian ears had only heard the word "succotash" used in cartoon sketches but it turned out to be the name of a very tasty side dish comprised of corn and lima beans. Thanks to Thanksgiving, I will no longer live in ignorance when Sylvester the cat (the Looney Tunes cartoon character) says his trademark expression "Sufferin' succotash!" I will nod knowingly and think back to this past Thanksgiving dinner.
