Hello again! I have been really missing in action this year with helping my Dad out all summer and into fall, but he's on track and doing well now and I can get back to this and what I love.
I have previous posts on Thanksgiving and the dishes. Our menu usually goes like this:
Roast turkey and ham
Green bean casserole
Candied yams with marshmellows
Seven layer Salad
Apple cranberry salad
Red Beet eggs
Spinach and artichoke dip
Butternut Squash mash with butter, maple syrup and cinnamon
Apple, pumpkin pies
It varies a little as folks will bring more goodies along but that's the main deal.
You can find some of the recipes here: http://www.pennsylvaniacooking.blogspot.com/2011_11_01_archive.html
Also, today is Hanukkah, which hasn't fallen on Thanksgiving in over a 100 years. Another reason to be very super thankful and blessed. You can find ideas for this week's celebration in a previous post here: http://www.pennsylvaniacooking.blogspot.com/2012/12/happy-hanukkah.html
So, now that we have those covered, my next post will be goodies coming on up into Christmas.
