Thanksgiving is a time where all the family traditions come out to share with friends and family. Here are a few tips for planning your celebration:
Many people spend the day, or more often just the afternoon, preparing their Thanksgiving meal. This meal generally includes the turkey, beets, mashed potatoes, stuffing, dinner rolls, candied yams, and of course dessert.
Dessert is often pumpkin pie and what better way to enjoy pumpkin than with a pumpkin custard pie. You will need 1 pie shell, 1 ½ cups of canned pumpkin, 1 2/3 cup evaporated milk, 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, 1 package of golden egg custard mix (or you can make your own custard), ¼ cup packed brown sugar, and an egg yolk. Combine the ingredients into the pie shell and bake for about a half hour on 350 degrees. Whipped cream will top of this pie with perfection.
Candied yams are also wonderful. A typical recipe will combine 3 apples, 4 medium sized yams, ½ cup brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon of water. You will bake the mashed ingredients for a half hour on 350 degrees and then add marshmallows on top to melt the last 5 minutes.
Thanksgiving has many traditions depending on your family, including menus dating back to the very first Thanksgiving among the Indians. Many families prefer to add a modern twist to the celebrations, serving trifle fruit salad or other delicious desserts. To a large extent, it really is all about your traditions and creating new ones. And, of course, spending time with and being thankful for the ones you love.
