Sign up for Fun Monday!
November 8 - Tell us about your Thanksgiving Day meal. Do you have your menu planned? Do you have the traditional turkey dinner, or go a bit more non-traditional? What is your favorite go-to dish for Thanksgiving? Any recipes you'd like to share?
This ought to be a food filled Fun Monday! I can't wait. I think I am going to share a recipe as part of mine. :)
Well around my mom's house, which is where we always celebrate Thanksgiving. It's so interesting, my dad eats no bird. We usually have ham and all the trimmings. Some years we have had pizza, one year we did Mexican, we were sick the whole weekend. We had eaten so much. Whatever we are having to eat is the last thing I really care about. I love to spend time with my parents, and my family that gets to make it home for the Holiday. You never can tell what we will be doing which is fine by me. Some people go nuts trying to make sure it is the Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving. One thing that is always the constant in our family dinner is dessert. We always have pumpkin pie and I always bring my Pecan Pie. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.
Here is the recipe if you are looking to make an easy pecan pie
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
3 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 to 2 cups pecan halves
2 tablespoons of Old No. 7 (Jack Daniels)
1 (9-inch) deep-dish pie shell unbaked.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar and melted butter. Add the corn syrup, eggs, pecans and Old No. 7, and stir until all ingredients are combined. Pour mixture into an unbaked pie shell, and place on a heavy-duty cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minuets. Lowe the oven temperature to 350 degrees F, and continue to bake for an additional 25 minutes, or until pie is set. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
