I look forward to this time of year since the holidays are upon us. There will be so many delicious foods to enjoy with family and friends.
Since my kitchen isn’t functional for the moment, I won’t be able to add any new Thanksgiving recipes until next year. But over the past three years, I have published many of my favorites. In Poulsbo, Washington we have a wonderful family-owned local grocery store called Town and Country Market. I have ordered my turkey from there and here is my recipe for Spatchcock Turkey. Also, check out my recipe for Slow Cooker Orange Cranberry Sauce. If you would rather keep things simpler, I recommend buying Harry and David’s “Country Cranberry Relish.” This is a nice combination of cranberries, oranges and walnuts. An easy way to make stuffing is Ina’s Herb Apple Stuffing Casserole. The stuffing is a delicious combination of bread cubes, Italian sausage, onion, apple and many fresh or dried herbs.
When it comes to pies at Thanksgiving, I have two that I love and have been making for years. They are Deep Dish Pecan Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Apple Butter Pie. These are super easy to prepare, and you can make them a few days in advance.
On the home front, the first area where the tile has been installed is the kitchen. Early next week, the dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, washer and dryer will all be installed. That means that the kitchen will be the first room in our entire house that is functional.
We are excited to have our dear friend Nanda here as our first guest in our new home and at Thanksgiving. She is very brave. With the home improvement delays, I have been feeling reluctant about being able to make our Thanksgiving feast. But now it’s looking like a go and just in time.
Dave and I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving from our table to yours!
