Today I thought I would continue with my Thanksgiving Menu that I've been sharing with you... The next item on My Menu would be mashed potatoes and gravy... I don't think I need to tell you how to make classic mashed potatoes... all I can say is that.... ehem... well... I don't make my gravy from scratch! Remember I am talking about a 'stress-free Thanksgiving Dinner' where the host/hostess can enjoy as well! so ... if you feel there's something you'd rather just buy already made, go ahead and buy it!' I do prefer things from scratch.... all I am saying is that if there is something, anything, that would cause you to stress out... don't do that... like Beth Moore would say: "Do what blesses, not what burdens"!
So... the next item on my menu is a delicious, really delicious Cranberry/Orange Relish... we prefer that to the cranberry jelly ... but it's your choice! I hope you do try it! It's really yummy and super easy to make! I got this recipe from Auntie Sally (Hubby's aunt) and I am happy to share it with you (just her sugar cookies recipes I am not allowed to disclose )
