roast beef

Our friends over at Epicurious.com always have interesting things to stimulate our brains as well as our taste buds. Right now, they’ve got a poll going asking YOU (and me) what we typically eat for our holiday meal.

My beloved steaks are in the running, but take a look at what meal is the front runner. *Wink, wink* it’s one of my favorites, too!

What’s your vote?

Take the poll here.

Oh, and where can you get the most popular items in this poll? Right here of course.
