Let me join in on the recipe fun! Here are some of my family's favorites.
They are simple and simply delicious.
The night before or Thanksgiving Eve
I have to make this....
2 14oz cans of Dole Pineapple Tidbits - drained
1 14oz can of Dole crushed pineapple - drained
I save the juice for Jacob to drink later.....
1 11oz can of Geisha mandarin oranges - drained
1 package of mini marshmallows
1/2 package of angel flake coconut - more or less to taste
Maraschino cherries sliced in half about half the jar
if you use more than that it will overpower the salad
3/4 of a 16 oz container of sour cream - you don't want it
to be too loose or too dry - if it gets to loose add more
coconut - too dry more sour cream - see it's easy!
Sweet Potatoes with my Secret Ingredient
2 29oz cans of sweet potatoes in their own syrup - drained
1/2 cup brown sugar sprinkled over sweet potatoes
1 stick of butter cut into pats and dotted over sugar
Peeps - yes I said Peeps. Shaped like pumpkins (face down)
or snowman. I did this for the kids when they were young
and my niece and nephews would have a fit if I didn't continue this tradition (they are now 26, 24, and 22).
I used to make this in my corningware loaf pan - however the other day I opened my cupboard and found it cracked in half!
I don't know if my sweet potatoes will ever taste the same:(
I tried making them with baked and mashed sweet potatoes
but the kids had a fit. So back to canned - I know, so gourmet....
