The menu each year is always the same, and I think if I changed it, my family would rebel. Tried and true recipes, nothing fancy or elaborate. In fact most of my recipes come right off the can or box and they always come out just right. Years ago, I sent in my box tops (remembering doing that?) and received a recipe booklet of Jello molds and what meats they go with. Who knew?
When we will be playing games around the table on Thanksgiving night, the snack of choice is Chex Mix. There is just something about it that says, The Holidays! Well, I sent in my box tops again and got this cute tin, with the recipe on the inside of the lid (so I would never lose it). I have changed up this recipe a bit and have switched to using Crispix and less salt, but it is still great.
And finally, with my vintage glass pie plate and my can of Libby's pumpkin, I will knock out our favorite Pumpkin Pie. My mother used the recipe on the can and made the best pie in the world. So I shall do the same. Why fix what isn't broken?
Well, I better get crackin'! Have a very Happy Holiday!
