Yum... love the pumpkin mousse recipe. The cornucopia looks festive. I think I'll make brocolli casserole for dinner tomorrow.

I cannot get my family to eat any stuffing except stove top... but I'll keep trying!

Thank you ladies!

Ginger-Orange Cranberry Sauce

1 bag (12-0unce) Cranberries

1 Cup Orange Juice

1 Cup packed Brown Sugar

2 teaspoons (or more if you like ginger) grated ginger

Combine in a saucepan and stir. Cook for about 10 minutes on medium heat, or until the berries begin to pop. Turn off the heat. Leave the sauce on the burner to cool. That's it: you now have cranberry sauce.

Vegetable oil
1 pound Brussels sprouts
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons butter
½ cup chicken stock

In a large skillet, heat oil on medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts, and stir slowly until lightly browned. Add butter and chicken stock, cover, and reduce to medium-low heat. Let simmer until fork tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Do not overcook.

Many people think of Brussels sprouts as “cute little cabbages” but prefer not to eat them, usually because they’ve only experienced them mushy and overcooked. Brussels sprouts should be steamed or simmered very briefly, just until they’re beyond the raw stage. That way, they’ll stay nice and green on the outside and white and delicious on the inside

* 1 package (12 ounces) fresh /or/ frozen cranberries, thawed
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
* 3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
* 2 green onions, chopped
* 2 teaspoons lime juice
* 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
* 1/4 teaspoon /each/ ground allspice, cinnamon and cumin
* Tortilla chips


* Place the cranberries, sugar, chilies, cilantro, onions, lime juice,
* peel and spices in a food processor; cover and pulse just until
* blended. Transfer to a serving bowl; chill until serving. Serve with
* chips. Yield: 2-1/2 cups.
I found this in the Taste of Home magazine a couple of years ago. It is simply outstanding. I add about 1/4 tsp salt in my version and have never remembered the lime peel, but certainly don't miss it. I have frozen green chiles in my freezer that I use rather than canned. I normally make a double recipe and go slightly overboard on the cilantro, just because I love it. Last time I served it, it was pronounced "magical." It goes very well at Thanksgiving or any holiday or any day.

Many years ago in the 1950's my sister sent me this recipe. I make it every Thanksgiving and Christmas. I took this to a potluck years ago. The people loved it and the ladies all got the recipe. They thought it would be good to freeze and have on hand. Later that year I found it in many of the chruch and school cookbooks. I love sharing recipes. I also like that people bring us fresh cranberries to have in our freezer. We live near the cranberry bogs and this year the neighbor brought us a 5 gallon bucket full.

Florence's Raw Cranberry Christmas Salad

1 (12-ounce) package fresh or frozen cranberries
1 cups sugar
In a blender or food processor, process cranberries until coarsely ground. Pour into a bowl; add sugar. Cover and chill for 1 hour. (or overnight)
1 (2 cups) can crushed pineapple, drained
2 cups miniature marshmallows
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
Fold in and serve:
1 cup whipping cream, whipped

Can be Frozen
Transfer to greased square dishes. Cover and freeze for up to 2 months. Remove from the freezer about 45 minutes before serving. Cut into squares.

This is another odd Holiday year for us. Last year we were at a relatively local restaurant for Thanksgiving b/c my DH's deep fryer burner was busted in the move out to MD from AZ. Well we're still here, but now we are living in a hotel. They are offering Thanksgiving "dinner" as part of their M-Th dinner special, but no desert. SO, we have made reservations at a Buca De Pepo's for a Traditional American - Italian Thanksgiving dinner w/Desert.
