It's beginning to look a lot like Thanksgiving here...
What are your plans for the holiday weekend?
Every year we spend Thanksgiving with my husband's family. It seems like the weather is almost always just perfect and we spend a lot of time playing outside after a huge, delicious meal.
I only have to contribute a few dishes and today I got a head start by making a cranberry relish. This relish is made with cranberries and oranges... it's tart and sweet at the same time and brings back so many memories. My mom always made this relish and a traditional cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving.
4 cups of cranberries and 1 quartered orange (including the peel) get thrown into the blender (or a food processor) until the mixture is thoroughly chopped. Then add almost 2 cups of sugar and blend again until just mixed.
The relish tastes best after sitting in the refrigerator at least overnight.
But Jillian and I have already sneaked in several samplings... just to make sure it tastes all right, of course.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and always has been. Each year I find that I have so much to be thankful for...this year I count your friendships among my many blessings.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I hope you have a wonderful holiday and weekend.
