I had a massive craving the other day for my traditional Thanksgiving dinner. I realize that all of you who do not live in the USA don't celebrate this but for those who do, I would enjoy knowing what is "your" traditional dinner. I've noticed over the years that many families don't always serve the same dishes as I do. Also, what is your absolute favorite dish and what is your specialty dish? All of mine is listed below. Very traditional! Plus, everything has to be made from scratch that goes on my table, that's just me.
On my menu I serve of course turkey, honey glazed ham, mashed potatos, fresh green beans with bacon that's cooked for hours, my famous sweet potato casserole, homemade cranberry-orange sauce, stuffing, gravy, dinner rolls, pumpkin pie and apple pie. A newer tradition is in honor of my mother in law who passed away some years ago and my husband loved this, a macaroni salad.
My fav and best dish is my sweet potato casserole with a struedal topping. Nobody wanted me to change from the usual version of candied sweet potatos with marshmallows but I finally got my way and came up with this dish. Now everyone always wants to know if I'm serving it every year! What a difference a dish makes!
So, what are you serving this year?
And BTW, after my dish was such a hit, I bought recipe books for all of my sisters, put this one into it and gave them all a copy for Christmas.
