4 Foods on Friday-Thanksgiving Edition

Hard to believe it's already mid-November and that Thanksgiving is 2 weeks away! See what everyone else is drooling over on their Thanksgiving menu....

#1. Stuffing. Boxed or from scratch?
Boxed, but all doctored up with apples, celery, craisins, and onions

#2. If you were served the perfect Thanksgiving dinner what would it be?
Well, mine would have no meat, but the ideal Thanksgiving meal that I would serve to all my carniverous friends and family would be....Roasted turkey with hickory maple rub, stuffing (see above), mashed sweet potaotes with crushed pineapple and cinnamon, steamed green beans, sauteed spinach with garlic, homemade chunky cranberry sauce with fresh grated orange zest, and warm fresh baked honey wheat bread

#3. What’s your favorite Thanksgiving leftover?
Sweet potatoes reheated in the oven with just a dab of maple syrup

#4. Share a recipe using turkey.

I didn't grow up eating sweet potatoes but i love them now! I like the idea cooking them with pineapple and cinnamon. I'll have to give that a try as sweet potatoes are one of the few thanksgiving-y foods you can get here! :)

That is a great idea! Adding other things to boxed stuffing. Yumm.
