Bam! And these were just the entrées! L-R: My homemade stuffing, ham, pineapple ham, dark turkey meat, & white turkey meat.

Gravy, mash, and yams! Mmmm!

We also had loads of side dishes: poke (raw fish), edamame (soy beans), toss salad, dinner rolls, etc. Too much food! We were so stuffed!

Can’t forget the wines! The Stella Berry and the peach Moscato paired well with our feast.

And this glory- pumpkin/custard pie! All in one- yummy!

The stuffing was very simple to make. You need the following ingredients:

  • Stove Top stuffing mix OR any stuffing mix of your choice. I used Love’s Bakery’s stuffing mix this year.
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Chopped olives
  • Onions
  • Craisins or raisins
  • Pine nuts (optional, which I forgot to add this year)
  • Chicken broth

Sauté the celery, carrots, and onions together with either olive oil or butter. Let that cool. Mix stuffing mix, chopped olives, craisins/raisins, and pine nuts together. Throw in the sautéed veggies and mix together. Drizzle some chicken broth. Cover with foil, bake at 350° for 30-45mins. I like my stuffing loose and crunchy.

Before it went into the oven. Doesn’t it look delish?

Let the holiday season begin again! Time to get cookin’! Whoo hoo!

Have a wonderful rest of November.

A time for Thanks!

Happy belated Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with loved ones. This year, I decided to make my first ever cranberry-blueberry sauce to go with our delicious turkey my dad cooked. I added blueberries, some OJ, and a hint of cinnamon to be creative and change up the traditional cranberry sauce recipe. It came out great! My family enjoyed it! This has been added to the annual Thanksgiving menu, along with my stuffing!!! Yay!

Food for thought: Blueberries and cranberries are high in antioxidants- whoo hoo! And did you know that cranberries bounce? How cool is that?!
