Food

Continuing our Thanksgiving theme this week, I want to know what is your favorite thanksgiving day foods? Is it the appetizer? Apple pie? Do you like your stuffing with fruit and nuts or traditional? Is there any strange thing you eat this day? Any recipe you want to share is welcomed too!

I loooove white trash green bean casserole. It is the only casserole I like, usually I hate foods all mushed together, but this I love.
I also heart this pumpkin cheesecake I make. I don't like pumpkin pie or muffins, but in this recipe it is to die for. YUM.

The only strange thing we have is lasagna for the non turkey lovers.

  1. Well I love what my mother used to call "non-nutritional rolls" i.e. those crappy rolls that open up into four pieces that you can get at the market for 99cents/dozen. But my all time favorite is an old family recipe, cranberry pudding w/sugar sauce. It's like a bread pudding (you steam it) and the sauce makes the dish. Pure sugar...hmmmmmm.

  2. I love the stuffing. Best part. It seems like that's the only thing we ever have that doesn't wind up as a leftover.. it's always all gone by the end!

  5. Jelly Salad. I know, sounds sketchy, but it's not, promise. Jello (red, whatever suits your fancy) and applesauce. The perfect palate cleanser.

  7. I love the jello salads we make but my favorite, by FAR is apple salad.

    Cut up 6 apples
    5 bananas
    1/2 cup pecan peices
    2 c mini marshmallows

    dressing-
    mix miracle whip, milk and sugar to desired taste and consistancy, pour over fruit about 30 minutes before serving.

    Apples will start turning brown unless you use a deterant but they still taste the same.

    Trust me, this is really good even though the dressing seems strange.

  9. I live for pumpkin pie. It's the only time of year that I WILL eat it, and there are a couple dishes we hispanics save for just the holidays. One of them is called pasteles- where you mash up plaintains and yucca (i don't know that word in english) and you spread it open and stuff it with meat/olives/peppers, whatever you like, boil it till the plaintains and yucca are cooked and enjoy with your turkey! It might be an acquired taste for the hispanic household, but I drool just thinking about them!

  10. Diana I have never had that but I do love yucca.

  11. yummy-empanadas...you must have good friends who have introduced you to these foods...they should have you taste pasteles. You will like them if you like empanadas, it's basically the same thing just not fried.

  14. I have to be boring and say stuffing! and I love traditional stuffing, none of that fruit and nut crap.

    And sweet potato pie, not pumpkin. Yum! I can't wait!

  15. I'd like to lump the turkey, stuffing and gravy together as my favorite food. Oh man, just the thought of it is making me drool.

  16. Yeah, the dressing throws everyone. It's the same dressing my mother uses with her potato salad (plus mustard). My freat grandmother was Amish- Menonite and I have several great recipes from that side of the family that sound pretty strange but taste amazing. If you get bored one day, make it and you'll see. Kids LOVE this stuff because it's got apples, bananas and marshmallows... can't go wrong with it.
