Except this isn’t Friday, it’s the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I wanted to post some ideas for Thanksgiving dishes before this Thursday, and give you time to go to the store. These are mostly desserts and booze, with a few other interesting things thrown in.
As Thanksgiving falls in the Autumn, (hahahahaha, a little English humour there), apples feature quite heavily in these recipes. Accordingly I’d like to remind you of Food on Friday # 48, which is all about apples and includes a few ideas I think could be super for Thanksgiving. (What do I know, we don’t do Thanksgiving in England.)
So, first up this week is a great recipe for a desert, or for something to have in the evening, or on Friday. From Andrea at Cooking with a Wallflower, we have this delicious looking apple pear pie. And if that wasn’t tasty enough we have Andrea’s favourite Thanksgiving dishes for 2016.

Also from Andrea, how about this fabulous autumn drink ~ apple pear cider.

This is a decliciously cute recipe from Jacelyn Delk Adams at Grandbaby Cakes, a site I haven’t featured before, caramel apple cheesecake. Doesn’t it look fabulous?

From Heather Christo, one of her gorgeous looking dishes, with one of her trademark very long names; pumpkin caramel and chocolate ganache tart with potato chip coconut crust. Heather says this recipe is both vegan and gluten free.

Autumn Sangria with Apples Pomegranate and Figs
Another drink, this time from Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest; pomegranate ginger paloma. As well as tequila this recipe uses honey, fresh ginger, and mint leaves. Nice, but make mine without the tequila. If that wasn’t enough, from bon appetit we have a collection of 25 Thanksgiving cocktail and drink recipes. Jeez.

Finally for this week, something that no Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner would be complete without; the stuffing. From Elise at Simply Recipes we have a sausage, sage, and cornbread stuffing recipe, (we don’t get cornbread in England).
Sausage Sage and Cornbread Stuffing
If all that wasn’t enough, Country living has 37 recipes for your best Thanksgiving stuffing ever, including this slow cooker cranberry pecan stuffing from one of my favourite cooks, Chungah at Damn Delicious.
