Well, I’m the last one to cross the Thanksgiving finish line. You see, my mom flew in from Kansas and didn’t arrive until Friday, so the family get together and the big feast didn’t take place until Saturday. While you were enjoying all those fabulous leftovers, I was happily slaving away in the kitchen.
My meal really isn’t all that blog-worthy as everything on the table was pretty traditional; turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, roasted sweet potatoes, dressing…BUT, I do want to pay homage to some blogger friends out there who inspired some new twists to my Thanksgiving buffet this year.
First of all thanks to Dave over at My Year On The Grill for his appetizer inspired Cream Cheese topped with Chipolte Raspberry Sauce. Delicious flavors Dave, thanks for the idea. You can see that dish in this post by clicking HERE. I’ll be serving this one over and over all year.
OMG, I found the best dinner roll idea over at Pioneer Woman Cooks. I purchased Rhoades Frozen Rolls and prepared them according to directions, when done and still warm, slathered them with plenty of butter, and sprinkled them with coarse cabernet flavored sea salt and chopped fresh rosemary. Holy rolly. Take at look at these by clicking HERE.
And this great little idea from Donna over at My Tasty Treasures. Cranberry Pineapple Mini’s These are really good, easy and can be prepared in advance. You’ll find these on my Thanksgiving table from here on out. Plus my mom was reeling of this clever idea. Reeling mom’s are a good thing. Take a look at this recipe HERE.
And then there is this delicious appetizer stuffed celery sticks from my friend Vickie in Montana. This is Vickie’s impressive photo, not mine. My camera didn’t seem to make an appearance the whole meal. You can find her recipe HERE.
So anyway, sorry to hold everybody up, I think we can officially start talking about Christmas food now! 🙂
