What’s your favorite one Thanksgiving food? It could be something you make or something you remember having on prvious Thanksgivings. If it’s something really yummy and you have the recipe, will you share it?
My grandma always made Watergate Salad and I dearly love that stuff. Since I’m trying to lose weight and since I like it way more than anyone else around here and since I eat more of it than anything else on Thanksgiving Day, I think I’m going to exercise a bit of self-discipline and not make it this year.
I also love Cranberry Cherry Salad. I started making it several years ago and we all love it so I’m definitely making that this year. Here’s the recipe:
Cranberry Cherry Salad
1 – 16 oz. can jellied cranberry sauce
1 – 16.5 oz. can pitted dark sweet cherries, drained and coarsely chopped (I sometimes just cut them in half)
1 – 10.5 oz. crushed pineapple with juice
1 – 6 oz. package cherry Jello
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2 cups boiling water
In a medium saucepan, melt the cranberry sauce over low heat. Stir in the cherries and pineapple with juice. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl, pour boiling water over Jello and stir til Jello dissolves. Combine the Jello mix with the cranberry mix. Stir in the almond extract.
Pour into a 9 x 13 type dish and refrigerate overnight.
Yum! This stuff is so good!
