in my house we usually ditch the turk and cranberries to have a more traditionally polish meal. instead of turkey we have ham or a young roasted pig. instead of cranberries we have pierogi z malinami (blueberries) instead of mashed potates we have kopitka (these things that are made of a potatoe dough and boiled, thens erved with gravy) instead of stuffing we have biegos (saurkraut with pork chunks in it) and finally... instead of misc. vegetables we have ogurki i buraczki. (pickles and beets. not together) it may sound disgusting to you southern europeans with your audacious spices and seafood, but its good and i hope you respect my food. if not, i'll still eat it.
