I am starting this topic for Thanksgiving recipes that are "family favorites" that you wish to share.



--------------------
I support the separation of church and hate!

IMAGINATION - the freest and largest nation in the world!


One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.

Am fear nach gleidh na h–airm san t–sith, cha bhi iad aige ’n am a’ chogaidh.
He that keeps not his arms in time of peace will have none in time of war.

"We're all in this together , in the parking lot between faith and fear" ... O.C.M.S.

“Beasts feed; man eats; only the man of intellect knows how to eat well.”

"Without food we are nothing, without history we are lost." - SHADOWS

Religion has spoiled many a good man.

Two filling variations for "stuffed" celery sticks:

Feta cheese, cream or half and half, ground walnuts, cayenne (or ground chipotle if you like it smile.gif ) to taste. Blend the cheese with enough cream to make a spread; fold in several tablespoons walnuts, season with pepper. Stuff celery sticks; Garnish with a light shake of red pepper, or sweet paprika, and a half walnut if you like.

Unsweetened natural peanut butter (chunky if you like it), tamari soy sauce, a mild or spicy Indonesian curry preparation, a little minced fresh ginger or galangale, a little fresh chopped cilantro. Blend enough tamari in to loosen up the peanut butter and make a spread. Fold in curry and fresh ginger to taste. If you like sweet flavor, a little honey, not too much. Stuff celery sticks, sprinkle cilantro over top for a garnish.

Penzey's spice company "Bangkok Blend", heavenly, great for this peanut butter spread:

Looks pretty if you alternate the two kinds of stuffed celery on the same platter. Better to cut smaller sections of celery, three or four inches, or even into 1" bite-size, because these are filling, especially the peanut butter.

All of my family is going to my Mom's house for Thanksgiving this year. For the past two years I've had to work, I told my boss I was taking the day off, so that's what I'm doing. I am fixing a turkey, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and a cheesecake, not sure which kind yet. We all bring a dish or two and that way no one has a lot of cooking to do. I almost forgot, oysters...fried breaded oysters! biggrin.gif

This is something my mother makes every fall. At least a half dozen times. I introduced it to my household, and now I am "required" to make it for Thanksgiving, Christmas and any days in between.

Fresh Apple Cake

Start With

2 cups sugar*
1 1/4 cup veg oil

Cream together til smooth
Add three large eggs one at
a time til blended. (very important to do this step!)
Add 2 teaspoons vanilla til blended.

In another bowl combine:
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
Add to creamed sugar oil, and egg mixutre,
a cup at a time.

Add 1 cup chopped walnuts and 3 1/2 cups chopped
apples. (granny smith highly recommended...has to be a tart non mushy apple)

Stir til blended.

Bake at 350' for 1 1/4 hour in a greased and floured
bundt pan.
Check to see if done by toothpick thingy..at an hr.
if not done continue for the fifteen minutes. Check again.

*(I make it with the half sugar/half splenda baking mix)

Please let me know if you make this and love it.

APPLE PUDDING

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1" chunks

2 tbsp Apple Pie Spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice)

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt

1 stick unsalted butter

1 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs

1/4 cup molasses

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/4 cups breadcrumbs

2 cups, more or less, of chunky applesauce

1. Spray pudding mold with Baker's Friend or Pam. Combine 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tablespoon water in a small saucepan over medium heat, and cook until sugar has melted. Continue cooking, swirling pan occasionally, until sugar turns a deep amber. Carefully pour caramel into pudding mold and roll it around so the caramel coats mold evenly.

2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small sauté pan; add apple chunks and 1 tablespoon granulated sugar. Cook over medium-high heat until apples turn brown on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes. Place apples in the bottom of the mold, distributing evenly so they reach up the sides.

3. Mix dry ingredients. Cut in 1 stick softened butter with pastry knife.

4. Whisk eggs. Whisk in molasses. Mix with dry ingredients, and add chunky applesauce until it makes a spoonable batter.

5. Fill pudding mold with batter and clamp on lid (no lid? Spray tinfoil with Pam, fold a pleat in it, and tie it to the top of the mold with string). Place mold in a pot of boiling water on a small dish or trivet. Cover pot, reduce to a simmer and cook 2 hours.

6. Transfer mold to a trivet and let pudding set, about 15 minutes or so.
Pour some rum around the edges of the mold, so it seeps down the sides. Let the rum soak in.

7. Invert the pudding onto a serving plate with high sides. If any of the apple chunks stick to the mold, remove them, and rearrange them on the top. When ready to serve, dim the lights, pour some warmed brandy over the top, and set alight. Serve with hard sauce or custard sauce.

My parents and I are going out for dinner. My sister and her family are going over to his folks' for dinner, and my mom doesn't see the point in making a big turkey dinner for the three of us.

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
