Getting Ready For The Turkey Time Feast

My menu is set and I need to shop now. Here’s my menu with links to the recipes I will use.


Holiday Cranberry Sauce – Simple but good! I once made one of those fancy cranberry sauces and it was too much for my taste. Truthfully, I like the stuff that comes out of the can too!

Turkey Stuffing/Dressing – I use the recipe here. I add water chestnuts & pine nuts to it. When I worked at Houlihan’s in my younger years, the stuffing they made for their Thanksgiving dinner was so good and it had water chestnuts in it… so I just add them to this simple recipe.http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Baked-Moist-and-Savory-Stuffing/Detail.aspx

Green Bean Casserole
Mashed Potatoes – I like them creamy with no lumps
Streuseled Sweet Potato Casserole – My fave and I made it today and it’s in the freezer!!! This is from Cooking Light. It was in the magazine a few years ago and I have made it ever since. Always a hit at my house!!!

I found a Turkey Mold I will put this in.

Sams Club Pumpkin Pie (okay, they have the best Pumpkin Pie and it is huge and such a great price – $5.00, you can’t make it that cheap. Take it out of the pie container and say you baked it, no one will know… Just hope they do not ask for the recipe.)
Choc. Chip Cookie Cheesecake – From Taste of Home… I have made this and it was a hit.

Apple Pie
Oreo Balls – They just look pretty on my tray of treats.
Do you have a special dish you make every year? Post the recipe in the comments and make my day!!!
