While I appreciate the effort that went into researching the calories, I SOOOO ignore all of it.

Thanksgiving (and the day after) and Christmas (and the day after) are and always should be "No Diet Days" in my book. That's what the other 361 days are for. But stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy? You can't "diet" those and have them taste good enough for holiday consumption.

Everyone knows that calories don't exist on Thanksgiving, or Christmas, and I think you get half off for Valentines day and Arbor day. :)
