The big election is less than one week away now! While it seems like we don't agree on a whole lot these days, I think we can all agree on two things. First, to quote John Oliver, "Please let this be over soon." Right? And second, I think we could all use a big hug in the form of some All-American comfort food. Whether it be some old fashioned garlic mashed potatoes, a big slice of Texas sheet cake, or a spiked root beer float, I've got you covered with 50 different All-American Classics! Regardless of the outcome of the election, my family will be celebrating this American privilege next Tuesday evening with our plates piled high with some of our favorite foods!
