I never know what day it is, and just by accident today I realized Thanksgiving is next week. WOW, how fast time is flying lately. I hope it’s not my age. No, it can’t be, I don’t think I’m that old yet!
It doesn’t matter, the turkey is ready to be roasted and that’s that.
Our family makes a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner. You know, the usual turkey, stuffing or dressing, cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes or yams.
In different states across the country those ‘traditional’ dishes are made in many variations. It is still what we call ‘traditional’ for this special day though it may, or may not be the same meal that was served at the actual Pilgrim dinner.
Last year I shared a cranberry relish/sauce recipe. It can be made in advance and it’s very easy which, to me, is the most important thing in a recipe.
Homemade cranberry sauce is a very flexible recipe. You can use any fruits you like, make it a day or two in advance and you have a head start with your Thanksgiving dinner.
My next recipe to add on to your traditional Thanksgiving dinner will be a healthy alternative recipe for Pumpkin Biscuits.
This is another easy recipe with flavors of the fall holiday that is just perfect with Thanksgiving dinner.
