Thanksgiving is just around the corner! It’s tomorrow already. I can’t believe how fast the holiday season is approaching. If you’re looking for any last minute recipes for the big meal, check out AllRecipes. I found the recipe for the cornucopia pictured above that I will be preparing tomorrow for our family Thanksgiving. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, bloggers!
Mom was always an artist when it came to preparing a fabulous Thanksgiving turkey. She knew how long to cook, the perfect temperature, how often to baste, etc. She made it look so easy. This roasting pan endorsed by Emeril would be another tool in her arsenal of culinary excellence.
Sometimes, the biggest part of Thanksgiving for my family is not really the meal, it’s more the hors d’oeuvres. My family likes to visit around food. This online recipe for sun-dried tomato jam appetizer sounds intriguing. I’ll be honest, I’ve never put the words tomato and jam close together, so this will be an interesting experiment.
Looking at that pumpkin pie yesterday, I got to thinking about how good green bean casserole sounds right about now. And the recipe for green bean casserole is really simple. You can find this recipe, with little variations here and there, almost anywhere on the web. This recipe is probably the original, a “classic.”
When my mom would put together the Thanksgiving table together, she would place a turkey on the table as a centerpiece. We had a running joke in the family that if someone said something stupid or silly, the tail end of the turkey would be turned to face that individual until the next silly thing was said. Through the course of the dinner, it was not uncommon to turn the turkey 5-6 times (we like to tell silly jokes as a family).
