THANKSGIVING 2008 - FOOD IDEAS

As most of you must already know, our fellow Americans will be celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday the 27nd of November 2008.

It is a good occasion for all the non-American people around the world to discover a different tradition as well as for all of us food addicts to rejoice at the prospect of collecting many scrumptious recipes which might be very useful for our Christmas and New Year meals (or any time of the year)!

In order to help you choose a dish or find a menu idea, I have compiled a few interesting links and recipes specially for you. I'm pretty sure that during those festivities, you surely don't want to be haunted by nightmares or depressed and stressed while anticipating all the cooking or baking you'll have to do!

  1. A wonderfully eclectic set of suggestions Rosa! Thank you for this selection. :-) I particularly liked the Chestnut Jam Bites as I made something similar today, though it is a Greek recipe.

    Happy Thanksgiving for our American friends!

  17. HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU, DEAR ROSA!

    That is really good lists you provide for us. So many choices, I am already actually plan to make your noodle kugel, which by the way seem much more delicious then the original "Joan Nathan" version.

    The Panetonne look very tempting as well, I might try to make this for christmas.

    This year my thanksgiving will be a bit challenging since my father in law is going celebrating with us. Everything have to be kosher, and have to be careful in the process of cooking too. You know what I mean!

    Anyway, I just got up and don't want to think too much about it, plus it will make my head spinning. Just going to enjoy my coffee, and the bread that I made yesterday.
    Xoxo,
    Elra

    No they are not cranberries (some kind of poisonous fruit on a decorative bush). Unfortunately, they don't grow here...
