November BSG - Luscious Lavenders - Week 3 - Blog : My Favorite Thanksgiving foods

Friday, November 16, 2012

Ok so i talked about my ways of Thanksgiving and my favourite memory in my last blog, here i am to write about my favourite thanksgiving foods. And this this year i won't be with my family for Thanksgiving, Adrian said that mother will prepare the same with Christmas for me when i am together with them.

I always saw the main feature as turkey and who wouldn't it is so big and shiny, my mother often uses lard and such for braising. But hopefully this time she will try the herb roasting recipes i found with sparkpeople, I have been talking with others how i can change things i normally eat into healthier version. My favourites have always been pies, i love fruit pies, and pumpkin pies, so i am planning this year for Christmas meal to make my own healthier version. My mother makes this good butter scotch pudding thought which this year i would try only a small piece. But for Christmas we also have that rich rum and fruit pudding, wow is that good, but i guess i am getting semi sidetracked with Christmas now lol.

I really love the roasted turkey, the roasted pumpkin, potatoes, onions and stuffed peppers/capsicums. I enjoy the lovely chowders, and the fruit punch dad makes.

Even though i love these not all of them are healthy, so hopefully with my next meal serving of this type with my family i will talk of healthier alternatives and see how it goes for the family likings.

    Strangely, no one in my family is a big turkey fan - so we always roast a small turkey for tradition's sake but also roast one or two chickens. I guess my favorite Thanksgiving food would be the stuffing - I could eat the whole bowl. I like it best as a snack in the evening - cold and lots of pepper on it.
We always have apple and pumpkin pie.

    ooh I like all the things you mention. I wasn't familiar with capsicums until I looked them up and found they are peppers. What kind do you like - and how are they stuffed. The butterscotch pudding sounds sooooo good. I would love the recipe for that one if you mum is willing to share. I'll be interested to know how you adapt your recipes. Thanks for sharing your favorites. emoticon

    I enjoy the turkey too but my mom usually uses vegetable oil. I think if I make a turkey this year I'll use olive oil. I love the pies too and it's hard when there are many pies available to eat. The rum and fruit pudding sounds really good! emoticon

    Great blog, I too enjoy having the turkey, as this is really the only time of the year I can have turkey. DH doesn't like it, so we only have it at Thanksgiving & always have a ham with it.
