In celebration of Thanksgiving and giving thanks, I’m hosting up what hopefully will be a little fun with a nifty prize at the end.
We love food. We love cooking. We are HUMAN…That means not all our loving meals quite come out like we intend. Maybe we ran out of something and tried to wing-it with another ingredient.
Maybe our oven takes a crap on Thanksgiving morning. (True story) Or maybe it’s not even the food, maybe our toilet became old faithful and you didn’t even know one could blow like that!! (Another true story)
Share your favorite Thanksgiving BLOOPER and sometime on the Friday after, I’ll pick a winner.
What’s the prize you ask?
An autographed copy of my sweet coming home, Thanksgiving themed story. The story of realizing you aren’t at the card table anymore and that you and your siblings are now grown.
An American Holiday-Turkey, Cranberry Sauce & Prozac!
In the story Kristi James shares a family recipe. Great Grandma Obaugh’s Cranberry Salad- Well folks, that was my grandmother Obaugh’s cranberry salad recipe, so while the story is completely fictional, this of all my stories holds the most little truths here and there.
For those who wish the recipe for Thanksgiving… Prepare the night before for best results.
Large Box Cherry Jell-o
One Cup Sugar
One Cup Walnuts or Pecans
One Cup Celery
One Cup Raw Cranberries
One Can of Crushed Pineapple
Large box of Cherry Jell-o and one cup of sugar. Add HALF the required boiling water and mix until all is dissolved. Set in refrigerator to HALF set.
While you are waiting.
Chop walnuts or pecans, celery and raw cranberries. Once Jell-o is half-set, add all ingredients, including entire can juice and all of crushed pineapple and grate the entire orange (zest) and then using fingers shred the flesh up into the jell-o.
Mix well and set in refrigerator overnight.
If you try it… PLEASE, PLEASE let me know what you thought. I loved sharing Great Grandma’s recipe and I thought she’d get a kick too!
