Thanksgiving Menu 2010
Since I can’t write a blog post without pictures-I had to borrow some. Giving full credit to Taste of Home-my favorite recipe site. I have never taken pictures of my Thanksgiving Dinner. Last year, we were with Dustin and Andrea, and I think all the pictures are on her camera. I would still like to record our very-very traditional menu. It never changes-unless someone brings over a different version of their favorite dish. I only make them once- maybe duplicating some dishes for Christmas Dinner–this way–my family looks forward to them all year.
This is the only thing I am going to mix up this year. I am adding some chopped apple and bacon. You can find the recipe here.
Sweet Potato Casserole. With a lot more marshmellows than this. I have to make a 9×13 pan of these. They must last for at least one session of leftovers.
Green Bean Casserole
Cranberry Relish Dustin and I are the only ones who eat this. It has become the family joke. But-I am making it anyway. In honor of Dustin. In honor of all things traditional. In honor of – I like Cranberry Relish – and I don’t care who knows it!
I personally think this should be the family joke at the table. Ok-well-maybe for me-it is. I call it ABC Scalloped Corn. I don’t even make this. This is a family tradition that my husband makes. I will usually take a bite-just to appease.
Dinner Rolls – this is one of my favorite smells in the kitchen.
Pumpkin Pie – A must –
Apple Pie – Another must. I will share my recipe next week-after-I take my own pictures. I feel kind of guilty for using someone else’s pictures. Next year-Next year-If I remember in the middle of it all to take the pictures.
Have a wonderful traditional Thanksgiving!
