What's more American than....VOTING?

When I was a kid we learned a song in school that asked that question with a silly variety of different endings....corn flakes, the Fourth of July, Uncle Sam, ice cream, baseball, football, etc. (Aside, can anyone explain why the song includes pizza pie, but not apple pie in the list of "American" items?)

In any event, in honor of my friend May's naturalization party, I am asking YOU this question...What is the most American dish I can bring to help May celebrate? She'll already have hot dogs, Coca Cola and little apple pies. What do you think folks? What shall it be? Please exercise your rights as a reader of this blog and let your voice be heard!

I will report on Thursday what I take, just how badly I humiliate myself on her citizenship trivia games....and just how often we all (including May) shout, in answer to the question above, "I AM, I AM, I AM!"

not being American, I'd vote the Canadian: chili cheese dog,or a curry dish or egg rolls or samosas -- the food from other cultures assimilated into North American cuisine.

Fried anything. Maybe chicken? You can oven-fry it to be less disgusting but for the same effect.

BISCUITS! I always associate "American" food with southern food i.e. BISCUITS!!
as you might have already gathered biscuits make me happy :)

How about Root Beer floats?? It always makes me think of the 4th of July, homemade ice cream and root beer, yummy!

Okay ... how about meat loaf or shepherd's pie... These are standards at our house because they are comfort food. Or Peach Cobbler!!!

Hamburgers! (you could make little bite size ones & serve them on those waffle fries you can buy in the frozen section)

Andrea, thank you for being one of the dominant voices who sang "Fifty Nifty United States." You definitely helped the party rock hard core.
