heart healthy - cranberries
I was happy to hear Icy mention that she was gathering with family but the menu was a little nontraditional, but then what is traditional? more>>>>
If our family ate spaghetti every year, wouldn't that be our "tradition"? Perhaps I misunderstood her, but I have read many of her articles about eating healthy and seen some of the dishes she has prepared for her family. I know her well enough to know that she meant they are not necessarily eating traditional Thanksgiving fare, but am certain she would not feed her family food that is not healthy!
I started a tradition some time ago to make homemade cranberry relish. So we have bypassed the can for fresh cranberries and I like to blend it with some clementines and sweet apples to offset the natural tartness of the cranberry. I just finished preparing the relish along with some stuffing and a key lime pie and we will be leaving shortly to pick up Mom and head over to Chris and Mariolina's for dinner. I sincerely hope you and yours have a very blessed Thanksgiving! There is so much to be thankful for.
My questions - yes, I have them: :-)
1. What is your favorite traditional dish for Thanksgiving?
2. What do you insist on having made from scratch?
Please join me in wishing Amanda a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving, just as I wish for you and join us at two questions Thursday.
Blessings and hugs!!
