Thanksgiving: Food…

The card slot on my computer is not working, so I can’t upload the rest of my pictures I wanted to share from the Auburn v. Georgia game that we went to this past weekend! D3 had a ball and loved the cotton candy, if you can’t tell from my previous post!

It’s hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is next week-so, I wanted to post a couple of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes!

Mawmaw’s Cornbread Dressing

  • Cream of celery coup
  • Cream of chicken soup
  • 1 ½ tbsp. sage
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cake of cornbread


  • Crumble cornbread into fine piece in a medium bowl
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and stir
  • Place in casserole dish
  • Cook on 350 degrees for 45 minutes

And I’m pretty sure my husband’s favorite thing that I make:

Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie

  • 1 deep-dish pastry crust- 9 inch
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 6 cups thinly slice, peeled apples (2 different kinds)
  • 1 recipe crumb topping (below)
  • 1/2cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup caramel topping

Ingredients for Crumb Topping:

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup butter

 Directions for Crumb Topping:

  1. Stir together brown sugar, flour, rolled oats
  2. Cut in 1/2 cup butter until topping is like course crumbs.  Set aside.


  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt
  2. Add apple slices and gently toss until coated.
  3. Transfer apple mixture to the pie shell
  4. Sprinkle crumb topping over apple mixture
  5. Place pie on a cookie sheet so the drippings don’t drop into your oven.
  6. Cover edges of pie with aluminum foil
  7. Bake in a preheated 375 oven for 25 minutes.  Then remove foil and put back in for another25-30 minutes without foil
  8. Remove from oven.  Sprinkle pie with chopped pecans then drizzle with caramel on top.

Yum! These are always the 2 favorite things I look forward to at Thanksgiving.

What are your favorite Thanksgiving foods?

  1. I will be making “Cindy’s Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie” (that’s what we call it) as well. Other famous recipes I’m trying are Paula Dean’s Green Bean Casserole, Crock Pot Candied Yams, Ma Mashke’s Corn Casserole, Rachael Ray’s Turkey Gravy and Ocean Spray’s Cranberry Sauce (ha – right out of the can)! Mike will be smoking the turkey on the green egg. Mom is making pumpkin pie, dad is making mashed potatoes, Mark is making his famous dressing, and Nate and Maggie are making cookies. I’m also going to attempt to make baked apple french toast for breakfast that morning! Mike’s mom visited a couple weeks ago and said I’ve really improved with my cooking (and she’s my toughest critic). Maybe there’s hope for me, yet! The cold weather has really kept me in the warm kitchen, so I’m getting lots of practice!

    We will be thinking of you guys! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Love to all.

    Wow- you guys are going to eat well! Sounds yummy. I’m not sure my cooking skills have improved a whole lot in 8 years of marriage. 🙂
