Need a few last minute ideas for the big Turkey Day?
If you're anything like me (writing a blog about Thanksgiving on the 4th Wednesday night of November!) you might need some last minute recipes for the big day tomorrow...
Here are 3 easy recipes for you to try!
They put a twist on the traditional recipes with a splash of bourbon, whiskey and maple!
You absolutely have to have a good tasting bird on Thanksgiving. Last year was my first year making my own big holiday bird for our family, and I was intimidated - memories of Chevy Chase sitting at the table and the burst of a desiccated turkey being cut open haunted me! But I was happy to find out making the turkey wasn't nearly as hard or scary as I had thought it would be, and even more happy to discover how a-maze-ing a maple-glazed turkey tastes!
What would Thanksgiving be without pumpkin pie?
As if pumpkin pie wasn't good enough on it's own, why not throw in a little maple and whiskey...? I love how the author of this recipe equates the flavor of whiskey with a “cuddling up next to the fire experience in liquid form." Why wouldn't that be delicious in a pie?
Lastly, whatever you do this Thanksgiving, make this maple butter!
Okay, well it has to be Maple Buttah if you're in Maine. But whether it's Martha's recipe (the one below) or your own, I have not met anyone alive who doesn't love this simple 3-ingredient part of the Thanksgiving meal. I'll warn you now however, if you make it once, you'll have to make it every year!
No matter how you celebrate this Thursday, we hope that you are surrounded by the smells of delicious food, the sounds of friends and family laughing, and enough space and silence to feel grateful for all that is good in your lives.
