Food on Friday ~ Thanksgiving

there is always something to be thankful for

Here in England the few American expats celebrate Thanksgiving, otherwise this holiday just passes us by.  Perhaps that’s why we English make such big things of Christmas and the New Year celebrations.  Anyway, with a few twists, your Thanksgiving menus are pretty much like our Christmas menus.

First, something we don’t ever have here, from the gorgeous Ali at Gimme Some Oven, this healthier Pecan Pie, (with no corn syrup).  You know something, I’ve never ever had pecan pie.

The ever-perfect Heather Christo has given us the ultimate vegan Thanksgiving, and from her list I’ve chosen this balsamic maple mustard whole roasted cauliflower ~ what a great side dish.

If you’re not going to roast a whole turkey then Heidi at Foodie Crush has a 30 minute recipe for a perfectly juicy roast turkey breast.  Looks like a brilliant idea to me.

Tiffany at Creme De La Crumb has offered us her reader-favorite Thanksgiving recipes; including these ‘life changing’ slow cooker mashed potatoes ~ I love a great dish of mashed spuds.

Here’s something fairly important and very useful from Diane at In Dianes Kitchen, turkey cooking facts and safety.  I well remember the first time I tried to cook a frozen turkey, what a disaster!

Finally, your collection this week is from Country Living Magazine; 56 Best Thanksgiving Recipes to Serve on Turkey Day.  I’ve chosen something different from this list; Scalloped Oysters by Nancy Fuller.
