I hope it doesn't show up again this year.

We've all had it. It shows up at every family gathering. It's that dish you can't stand the sight or smell of, yet the rest of your family oohs and ah's over it. When I was a kid, it was my mom's potato salad. At my MIL's house, it's Stove Top. What dish do you hope won't be at the big family Christmas gathering (even though you know in the pit of your stomach it will be there)?
