Day One...Give Thanks for Recipes

Because I'm truly thankful for all my bloggy friends, I've decided to be sweet and share some of my most treasured recipes that are used for our Thanksgiving meal. Honestly, I'm not one of those "It's-a-Secret-I'm-Never-Gonna-Let-You-In-On-It-Figure-It-Out-For-Yourself-If-You-Can" recipe people. Along with the good food you make, I believe recipes are meant to be shared.

My family likes a variety of culinary fare at our Thanksgiving table. There are quite a few fond memories of watching Mom hustle around the kitchen for days before our feast. She'd whip up pies, cakes, gelatin salads. The night before the feast, she'd put together casseroles, assemble the counters with a line up of mixing bowls, utensils, and platters needed to complete the morning task while we waited for her to execute her cooking and baking skills in mouth-watering perfection.

Oh, how long that Thursday was for us! We were ordered away from the kitchen, while Mom boiled and roasted, salted and seasoned, whipped and whisked, and created concoctions for the fabulous feast. What seemed like forever, though it was usually just 1pm, we'd be called to take our places at the table. Mmmm...I can still smell all those glorious aromas wafting around, and envision steam rising from the potatoes, green beans, and roasted turkey. My mouth is beginning to salivate onto my keyboard, so I'd best get to the recipes!

Because I need to keep myself organized with a list, here's the recipe schedule. Be sure to check back if you're interested in trying some new-to-you and dear-to-me culinary treasures.
