Blue Box mac and cheese is not mac and cheese boo. – There’s just so many ways to use it, it’s so versatile you know. I love it. – Um when you bite into a samosa,
it’s like crunchy. Crunch. And then, like, the filling
is like in your mouth. It’s like meat and onion
and like curry spices and then you sprinkle a little
bit of lime juice on the top. – Hey Naturally Curly world,
it’s Nikki, and this is, The Best Ever. – The Best Ever. – The Best Ever Thanksgiving food. – The best ever Thanksgiving
food is mac and cheese. The first thing to go
at every Thanksgiving is mac and cheese and you know it. Everybody has leftovers. There’s always cranberry sauce left over, there’s always some nasty
baked beans left over, there’s always some green beans,
always some mustard greens. Nobody ever finish the
pots of mustard greens. You know what they finish
first? The mac and cheese. You know what they go for
seconds? The mac and cheese. You know why? Because
it is literally the best tasting side dish for Thanksgiving ever. Mac and cheese is delicious. You can have like 30 cheeses in there. You can have bacon in
there, you can have broccoli if you wanna go a little healthier route. Um, you can do all kinds of mac and cheese and most of them are good if
you know what you’re doing. – My favorite Thanksgiving food
is stuffing slash dressing. I don’t know the difference between them. Some people call it dressing
some people call it stuffing. I call it delicious. Basically you take the most
delicious bread you have. You add, I don’t even know like really how to make dressing or
stuffing, I just eat it. But I think you add like a bunch of herbs and spices and whatever. Things that make bread taste
good and then you bake it. I just feel like stuffing
is an enlightened way to eat bread you know, you take
this bread, you improve it, you bake it, and when
it comes out of the oven it’s just so, like, some
parts of it are crispy, some parts of it are like soft you get such a variety of texture. – I am the child of immigrants so like what is Thanksgiving really? I don’t really have a history of like, ooh, really throwing
down for Thanksgiving. Last Thanksgiving I
left the country, so um, it doesn’t really mean that much to me. So I would say that my
favorite Thanksgiving food, it’s really not a Thanksgiving food, because what’s Thanksgiving? I just enjoy the holidays
in general because it’s when my mom stocks
up on samosas. Yes girl. So samosas are these
triangular puff pastry, fried type things that are filled with like meat or vegetables or potatoes. You’ve probably had them
at Indian restaurants. My family is Kenyan which
is influenced heavily by Indian cuisine, um
so, we eat samosas also. I believe East African
samosas are superior. I don’t really like
potatoes and vegetables in my samosas, just meat. – Vegan mac and cheese,
is not mac and cheese. Mac and cheese made with
yogurt is not mac and cheese. Mac and cheese that has runny
sauce is not mac and cheese. Mac and cheese that doesn’t
have the breadcrumbs on top, that little crust of cheese
and breadcrumbs that’s browned, and then you dig in and it’s
like cheese stringing up. If your mac and cheese don’t do that, it’s not mac and cheese. I love mac and cheese
because it’s comforting. Cheese is the greatest
thing we’ve ever gotten on this planet. Ever. It’s better than air. Mac and cheese makes
you feel warm and loved. No one’s ever mad eating
mac and cheese, um, no one’s ever like, oh, that’s
too much mac and cheese. If you make your mom a plate
and you pile on mac and cheese and you put like a little bit
of turkey and a little bit of that other crap that they
serving at Thanksgiving. She’s not gonna be like, oh no, too much mac and cheese,
give me more beans. Nobody’s ever asked for more beans. – If you want to amp it up even further, you take your gravy and you
pour it over your dressing and the dressing soaks up the gravy. To me Thanksgiving is
just like various methods of delivering gravy into my body. So stuffing is like the
perfect way to do that. And then my favorite thing to do, as if it doesn’t get any better, the day after Thanksgiving,
you take, um, left over mashed potatoes and then you put turkey in and then you put a little bit of cranberry just for a little tartness
and then you put the stuffing on top and then you drown it in gravy and then you put that in the oven. (dramatic sigh) and the gravy like soaks all the way down through all of the layers
and then at the top the stuffing gets like a little bit crispy and since it’s all left over
like it tastes even better than the day before. (sigh) I think that’s my favorite
part about Thanksgiving, is the leftovers honestly. But if I had just to choose one food it would definitely be the stuffing. – So my mom orders them
from this local grandpa who, you know, moved to the
states but he had a restaurant I think back in Kenya and so he be in the kitchen
cooking up some samosas. And we buy a big Ziploc
bag of like 50 samosas. And we just blow through them things man. They are delicious, spicy, flavorful, and I can eat just samosas. I feel like my ideal Thanksgiving
dinner would be a bucket of mac and cheese and a pile of samosas and I feel like my
intestines would hate me, but I would love me you know what I mean? I encourage you to,
you know, maybe support your local Ethiopian restaurant, um your local generically
African restaurant and get you a samosa
and see if you like it because I know you will. In the comments below, let us know what your favorite Thanksgiving food is or if you even celebrate Thanksgiving because girl, like, what? Um if you enjoyed this
video give it a like, comment, share, and subscribe. We post The Best Ever every Monday so we’ll see you next week. Bye. (upbeat music)

  1. I'm with Grace, stuffing is the best Thanksgiving food!! But for food in general, I have to agree Nikki. Chz is the greatest invention in human history.

  2. In Love mac n cheese, mashed potatoes, and boxes stuffing. But growing up my beyond fav thanksgiving food was Nigerian rice and stew! I'm making some this year to take to my brothers to carry on the tradition and I can't wait!

  3. No Thanksgiving in France so I'm with Evelyn on the samosa life with just meat inside lol. I've never tried mac n' cheese but Nikki made it sounds like the ULTIMATE confort food so I'll have to try that during my trip to the US next year. Grace seems so ecstatic about the stuffing that it made me wonder if there was such thing as good stuffing, cuz' so far, I've never liked any ๐Ÿ˜•

  4. We call them sambusa and even tho I'm Ethiopian and Eritrean, Somalians make THE best sambusa! But the lentils filled one that my countries make are straight fire too

  5. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพKENYAN๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ SOMOSAS ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพARE๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ THE ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพBEST ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

  6. I literally only care about three dishes on thanksgiving, the Macaroni and cheese, the dressing, and cranberry sauce. Literally everything else I don't want or care to have. And I don't even touch potato salad.

  7. I'm a child of immigrants too, so we got some Haitian dishes here and there ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡น but for the most part, we've adopted the holiday of Thanksgiving into our household!!

  8. i really love nikki but when sis said breadcrumbs on the mac… ya lost me sis! ๐Ÿ˜ท breadcrumbs don't go on no mac & cheese! lol. ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿพ

  9. There is a Halal store near Dallas-Plano that has these fist sized spicy-curried chicken Samosa's. Ridiculously delicious! The ruined The Game for everyone else for me. So, when Evelyn be talking about samosas… with her shoulders…. I feel what she saying.

  10. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ Grace: "…Thanksgiving is just like various methods of delivering gravy into my body." ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ And yes, the best thing about Thanksgiving is the leftovers. Absolutely… and, you know, quality time with the fam is okay too I guess. Lol.
    Grace talks about stuffing like I talk about chocolate, so I completely understand. You got it girl, I โค bread too. ๐Ÿค— Ummmm but that mac-n-cheese is real, lol.

  11. My FAVorites would have to be:
    -Macaroni pie (yes pie, lol. We're West Indian, so that's what we call it when it's all baked up)
    -Pumkin Pie
    -Cranberry sauce
    ๐Ÿ‘€ Mmmmm๐Ÿ‘…๐Ÿ™ƒ

  12. I do not celebrate Thanksgiving but Mac n Cheese is life!!!!! What I would be thankful for though is if @evelynfromtheinternets would post a video!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ซ itโ€™s been awhile now girl ๐Ÿ˜’ still love you though ๐Ÿ˜˜ make them coins ๐Ÿ’ฐ

  14. We dont have thanksgiving in Europe but when Christmas is coming I dont even call it "holiday season" tbh I refer to it as Samusas season and I know Im about to blessed. Im from Rwanda and we also just do straight meat as it should. Except we dont order them, girls get recruited to make hundreds and hundreds of them but it's worth it

  15. Ok, NIkki shaded cranberry sauce, but lowkey I grew up on that stuff. My grandma couldn't really cook like that, so when I was at her house and she would make me some Marie Callenders microwave chicken pot pie for dinner, best believe she and I were eating cranberry sauce-BY ITSELF- for dessert. Yes, girl! And to this day, I will go IN on some jellied cranberry sauce from a can. Happy Thanksgiving and happy holidays, guys!

  20. Lmao Grace is me when it comes to Thanksgiving. Dressing and gravy. All I need. Everything else is just whatever I can eat that goes with dressing and gravy.

  21. Ya girl is Ethiopian & I agree with Evelyn! We don't call them samosas we call them sambusas but East African sambusas are the best, just facts!

  22. Great video! I don't like cheese so mac & cheese was a no-go for me on Thanksgiving. I'm the only person in the world who doesn't like cheese…or most dairy products lol

  23. Evelyn! I was screaming when you mentioned samosas. I remember you posted a vlog of your thanksgiving that is my all time faviorate vlog. You not knowing how to act in that wig had me in a coughing fit. The way your brother was looking at you ahahah good times.

  24. I did not know Indian food was influential in Kenya? Let me check my googles. Is there a large population of Indians there? I am Trini and we got something like that as well, but a different name. Roti, doubles, poulori etc

  25. I'm not a vegan but the mac and cheese from the black-owned restaurant Seasoned Vegan (Harlem, NYC) is really good. I went with a group of friends and we had itis off vegan food.

  28. I have to agree with Nikki and Grace: I love baked mac & cheese and stuffing. Next would have to be candy yams and cornbread.

  29. Mac and cheese and samosa are the bomb. I'm from Kenya but my mom hardly ever makes samosa because she say's it's too much work LOL

  30. Lmao no ones ever mad eating mac n cheese is so true omg evelyn gurlllll you gon have to get to someones

  31. dressing! one of my favorite foods, period, along with greens (turnips, collards, spinach) and anything my Grandmom or Granny makes (especially Granny's biscuits).

  32. LMFAO AT GRACE – FOR ME EVERY DINNER OPPURTUNITY IS VARIOUS WAYS OF DELIVERING GRAVY INTO MY BODY! GRAVY IS THE BOMB. AND I'M SORRY NICKI BUT POTATOES ARE THE BEST THING ON THE PLANET. BETTER THAN AIR. FRIES,MASH,CHIPS ITS ALLL AMAZEBALLS
