    I can just have the mashed potatoes, homemade gravy and apple pie and be perfectly happy! My mom cooks like Martha Stewart (without the felony record) :icon_eek: Suffice to say it skipped a generation with me! That homemade apple pie is a thing of beauty. It is my yearly holiday highlight...

    We also make homemade pies---I'm not going to do anything special this year... Just the ole tried and true simple things that the family likes... turkey, potatoes, sweet potatoes, stuffing, veggies cranberry sauce, and we can't for get the eggnog, liquor and wine.

    I always have to take a nap after Thanksgiving dinner. That Tryptophan, or whatever the chemical is, does a number on me. :icon_wink:

    Another tradition is to watch a holiday movie, as a family, after we've had our after dinner naps... :icon_mrgreen:

    Chispa. I'd like your cranberry sauce recipe... :tup:

    Cranberry Relish
    2 oranges
    1 cup sugar
    2 teaspoons lemon juice
    2 teaspoons fresh ginger, cut in fine julienne
    1 bag (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

    1. Peel 1 orange and cut the zest (orange part only) into a very fine julienne, as thin as possible; set aside. Squeeze both oranges for juice; set aside.
    2. Combine sugar and lemon juice in a small sauté pan. Heat up slowly and continue cooking until the sugar begins to caramelize. If necessary, wash down the sides of the pan by brushing with a little water to keep the sugar from burning.
    3. When the sugar is caramel colored, add the julienned ginger and orange zest. Cook for about 1 minute, then add the cranberries, orange juice and pepper. Continue to cook on medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes or until the cranberries are slightly broken but not mushy (frozen cranberries will take about 7 minutes). Remove from the heat and let cool.

    Pineapple Cranberry Relish
    • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
    • 2 (16 ounce) cans whole cranberry sauce
    • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
    • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen strawberries, thawed and drained
    DIRECTIONS
    1. In a large bowl, mix together the pineapple, cranberry sauce, walnuts and strawberries. Cover and chill overnight before serving.

    Cranberry Chutney
    • orange, peeled, tough membrane removed, chopped
    • 1/4 cup orange juice
    • 1 package (12 ounces) fresh cranberries
    • 1 3/4 cups sugar
    • 1 large Golden Delicious apple, peeled, cored, chopped
    • 1/2 cup golden raisins
    • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
    • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    PREPARATION:
    Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 8 minutes, or until cranberries are bursting. Chill until serving time; freeze surplus in small containers.

    A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.
    John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.
    Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder.

    John, in desperation, threw up his hands, grabbed the bird and put him inthe freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.
    Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

    John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird continued, "May I ask what the turkey did?"


    HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL
