Eep! I can”t believe (Canadian) Thanksgiving is only a week away! How did time go by so fast? This will be my first time celebrating Thanksgiving with my family in a very, very long time. I”m so excited! My mom makes the best Thanksgiving meal around and I”m so looking forward to enjoying it with the rest of my fam!
I thought for this month”s meal plan I”d focus on the Thanksgiving meal. Not so much the turkey itself, but some sides to round out the table. I”ll be sharing some more recipes later in the week!
While everyone”s waiting for the main event put out some Smoked Salmon Pinwheels, Creamy Pumpkin Pie Dip or Mini “Pumpkin” Cheeseballs to keep them occupied and grumbling tummy”s at bay.
Homemade Cranberry Juice is a cinch to make and can turn into a guest worthy punch by using sparkling water or mixing it with ginger ale.
This simple stuffing is my mom”s recipe that she has made ever since I can remember. This year I”m pitching in and bringing the stuffing myself. I wouldn”t dream of trying a different recipe because not only would the family be extremely disappointed, but it”s just one of those times when you don”t mess with a good thing. P.S. It”s not cooked in the bird.
These Breadstick Twigs would be super cute placed onto each place setting, perhaps with a name tag attached. They”re super easy to make and who doesn”t like an edible decoration?
I strongly recommend you bypass the stuff in a can this year and make your own Cranberry Jelly. Not only is it tastier but it”s so easy to make!
If you”re looking for something a little different and a little simpler then a traditional pumpking pie this Pumpkin Sheet Cake is a great choice. A tender pumpkin spice cake topped with cream cheese frosting – nobody”s gonna complain about that! Double the recipe and bake in a 9×13 pan to make 18 servings.
