Thanksgiving Menu Sampler Two


The Thanksgiving Menu is integral part of this celebration and emphasizes the need to give thanks for all that we have been blessed with.




It’s also a chance to get together with family and friends  and get caught up with the events in their lives, and just spend a wonderful day with good conversation and usually lots of belly laughs.


It’s one of those holidays that has far less stress, anxiety and drama. And since our purpose is to give thanks and enjoy the food and company….what could possibly go wrong?

Don’t ask…without a doubt I always end up with at least one failure…burnt rolls, mushy stuffing, overcooked veggies … you name it, I’ve done it.

But, in the end it really doesn’t matter, we still made it through the day. And it’s just another calamity that’s been added to the list of “Mammy’s Bloops and Blunders”.  Just a little FYI…my first born grandson couldn’t pronounce his g’s so he came up with “Mammy” and it stuck. And I wouldn’t change it for the world. As every grandparent can attest, everything our grandchildren say and do is just pure genius, like no other child on the planet…am I right?


So here’s a menu that is simple, yet still special in it’s own way. Several of these dishes can be made a day or two before, which makes it easier on you and actually taste better when they have a chance to sit. That list  includes the pimento cheese dip, broccoli soup, stuffing, cranberry sauce and the pumpkin cake roll.

Now get your favorite beverage, curl up and cruise through and see if anything strikes your fancy. I’ll check in with you later.
