Once you have pushed away from the Thanksgiving table and everyone is napping, go to your computer. You probably won't find a lot of new blog entries to read due to the holiday but here are some of our past Thanksgiving posts in case you need a blog fix.

  1. My mama makes the best cranberry sauce - so much better than that jelled stuff that slides out of the can with a glup glup. :)

    It's Paula Deen's recipe:

    1 (8-ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce
    1 (6-ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
    1 cup walnut pieces
    1 cup pecan pieces


    In a medium size bowl, gently fold together the cranberries, mandarin oranges, walnuts and pecans.

    I like the sound of your dinner, GA - it sounds as if you have a lovely family and I know it will be wonderful to have them around your table.

    I'll be with 41 family members - the oldest is my mom at 83 and the youngest is just learning to pull up on things. Massive food and the aforementioned sauce that mom will make. I took over the sweet potato casserole from her and will get started on that tonight.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, my friend.

  2. Enjoy the holiday and the time with your family. Sounds like a wonderful meal is on its way.

  3. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  4. You are too funny, re-posting blogs.

  5. Tomorrow we are taking a friend for vegetarian Chinese food. Friday I am cooking for Mr. RK and myself, although I am sure our kitties will be hovering. Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Pistachio fluff?? I need to know about that.

    Hope you have a terrific Thanksgiving! I am pooped already. We will have turkey,ham,dressing,mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, cranberry sauce, gravy, pumpkin and apple pies.

  7. I was about to ask about the Pistachio Fluff too. That sounds very intriguing and delicious. Have a wonderful, delicious Thanksgiving!

  8. I love cranberry sauce!

    Just Me! Have to work. Haven't had one holiday off this year- can't afford it. Sucks all the fun out of life sometimes.

    I bought a $4 turkey thigh- had it a day early, boiled potatoes, croissants from work, n Cranberries- a local crop.
    Tomorrow I'll cook the frozen apple pie I bought for $2 on sale. Cheaper than apples this year.

    You are indeed a fortunate person to have such a gathering-
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  9. I am painting today...not Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

  10. Pistachio fluff?? Oh, that sounds good. I must get my hands on that recipe (if you can get it). Pistachio is my favorite pudding, cake and ice cream. I can't get enough of it!

    Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Sounds like you've enjoyed quite a feast.

  11. Happy Thanksgiving Annie :D

  12. Ok so when it the link for this pistachio fluff does intrigue me so!!
