breadstick cornucopia

I made this with my dd's a couple years ago and now can't find the recipe/instructions. Has anyone heard of it???

Its a cornucopia (sp?) made out of breadsticks-the kind that come in a tube, like Pillsbury. I think you needed 3 tubes and somehow wrapped them around tin foil.

Thanksgiving with our family is a huge event. We have between 30-40 people every year. My mom-in-law is the hostess. Everyone brings their specialty dish. Our menu is usually something like this.....

Turkeys
Ham
dressing
mashed potatoes/gravy
deviled eggs
green beans
corn
sweet potatoe casserole
brocolli casserole
slaw
rolls
cranberry salad

lots of desserts but always...
pumpkin pie
coconut cake
4 layer dessert

and many gallons of sweet tea!

Happy Turkey Day!

Kelly

Is the turkey done

when the little red button pops out? Even if it hasn't roasted for the alloted time on the chart? Last year the button popped up after 4 hours (but the chart said the turkey should roast for 6 hours). I was nervous about taking it out so soon, so left it in for the 6 hours. We all ate dry turkey.

Vickilynn, I don't pay attention to those "bird watcher thermometers." The best thing to do to find out if any meat is done is to use a meat thermometer. Poultry should be roasted to an internal temp of 180. It will "cook" a little after taking it out of the oven so take that into consideration. Here is a US Government site that lists the safe temps for all meats:

Barbzy, I'm going to buy a meat thermometer before I make another turkey. Thanks.

Kellydid, I love the Tipsy Cake recipe. I think I'll try it (WITH liquor) the next time I have the in-laws over. Maybe we'll all get along better

And I've never heard of sweet potatos in orange shells! What a clever idea!

Here's my

Cranberry Salad

1 can crushed pineapple (drained)
1 can wholeberry cranberry sauce
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 (8oz) pkg. Cool Whip
2 cups mini marshmallows
½ cup crushed pecans

Mix everything together and freeze in a 9x13 pan. Remove from freezer about 1/2 hour before serving, and slice into small squares.

VickiLynn:

The Tipsy Cake is really better if you do put the liquor in it but since I serve it to my grandson, who loves it!!!, I don't. I do make two at Christmas, though, so the adults can enjoy one with the liquor.

Hope you enjoy it if you make it!!

yummy marinade

We were going to fry our turkey but my baby dh was whining about it being too cold. wah wah 30-35 degrees is nothing
Sooo I was asking around how to season the bird since its been quite a few years since I had to cook one.
The obvious choice was my bro who is a chef. This is what they used to do-also works with chickens.

Roughly chop 10# of onions and mix with 2-3 tbls. of salt. Let sit for a few mins to start drawing out the moisture. Clean the bird of course then completely cover it (breast down) with the onion mix. Can use a big bowl or roasting pan whatever is handy. Pour 1-2 cups apple juice over everthing. Cover with plastic wrap and marinade in the fridge about 12 hours.
In the morning discard onion marinade and cook as you normally would. VOILA yummy, moist and great flavor.

Thats the plan. And only if the family chips in and helps clean the rest of the house first.
