Thanksgiving Goodness!
 
Since I am a "lady of leisure" this year and Walmart had a good deal on turkeys I guess I'm cooking! What's on YOUR menu?

My 16 pounder finally thawed and, since I have a tiny kitchen and no job, I thought I'd get an early start. Today I baked the bacon cornbread and steeped the giblets. I do love a good giblet gravy. Bathed the poor dead bird and plucked all unnecessary feathers. Got the big guy all nestled into his cubby awaiting stuffing...savory apple bacon you know but I may throw in some mushrooms. Tomorrow the bird gets stuffed and roasted so I can trim it all out tomorrow before T-day's wonderful parades and such! Got brownies to bake with double swiss chocolate and pecans topped with raspberries and sauce. I do have a piece of pumpkin pie left over from last year but obviously it's not a big favorite of mine... Smashed taters, rolls...tis a given I suspect!

DANG that dog who gnawed on my/our turkey leg even before it's cooked!

I have 2 days of thankgiving! On Thursday we go to my moms house for dinner with the whole family. We have the usuals turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes.
Then on Friday I cook a meal for my husbands family. His mom is handicapped and can no longer handle cooking a big dinner, so I am going to take everything to her house to cook.

By the way, what is salloped corn? Is it like creamed corn?

Well actually, everyone likes a different pie. The Chocolate pie was a new one this time ...

Yes, Scalloped Corm is Creamed Corn ... I also include diced onion, diced green pepper, 1 sleeve of crushed saltene crackers (per 2 cans of corn) and black pepper and garlic powder to taste. Mix well!

You can add a few crushed crackers on the top as well if you want a crispy cover. Just put a few pads of butter on top to keep the crackers from burning.

You can also sub "ritz" or "townhouse" crackers if you want to give it a sweeter flavor.

In a greased 9x13 baking dish it takes about 35 mins at 350 F ... add 10 mins for each additional can of corn.

Poo Michael - I'm coming to YOUR house next year! Just add a blueberry pie to that mix please?

scalloped corn...I have to find my recipe but isn't there supposed to be cheese in there? I haven't made that in sooooo long and I really used to like it too. Mostly my oven's used for storing paper towels now-a-days. I don't cook like this much anymore. Too much work/clean up for just one person

We had a "mixed" berry pie last year ... it was rasberry, blueberry, bosenberry mix ...


Yes, the "long" version calls for sweet corn and then you add heavy cream and crean cheese!!! The "short" version is a bit more healthy ... so I can eat more of it!!! :D

Razzleberry pie? Never had it but I adore booberry pie. And there ain't nuttin healthy about creamed corn you know so make it as delish as possible! Look at dog food - corn is a filler. I love it anyway cause everyone needs fiber!
