Time to say goodbye by Andrea to Chely

First, let’s start with the main part of the meal, the turkey.

flava Maná this is Daniel this is really chilled with cops

To begin, remove the insides of the turkey and wash the inside. Stuff the turkey loosely with foods like apples and onions. Tie the drumsticks together and brush the skin with melted butter or oil. Insert a meat thermometer into the turkey. Place the bird in a roasting pan, and put it into an oven preheated to 350 degrees. Roast until the skin is a golden color and then cover with a foil tent to prevent further browning. During the final 45 minutes of baking, remove the foil in order to brown the skin.

 

Next, add some interest to the turkey by having it be accompanied by some sides. The sides include mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and stuffing.

 

Mashed Potatoes

  • 2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

1) Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until tender but not firm (about 15 minutes). Drain the pot and remove the potatoes.

2) Heat butter and milk in a small saucepan over low heat. Using a potato masher or electric beater, slowly blend the milk mixture into the potatoes until smooth and creamy. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to add some more taste to the potatoes.

 

Green Bean Casserole

  • can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup or Campbell’s® Condensed 98% Fat-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1/2
  • cup milk
  • 1
  • teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1
  • dash black pepper
  • 4
  • cups cooked cut green beans
  • 1 1/3
  • cups French’s French Fried Onions

1) Stir mushroom soup, milk, soy sauce, black pepper, bean and ⅔ cup onions in a casserole.

2) Bake the mixture for 25 minutes at 350 degrees or until the mixture is hot and bubbling.

3) Stir the mixture and then sprinkle the remaining onions on top. Bake for 5 more minutes or until the onions are golden brown.

 

Stuffing

  • ¾ cup butter
  • 2 large celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 9 cups soft bread cubes (15 slices)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground sage
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

 

1) Melt butter in an oven over medium-high heat. Cook the celery and onion in the butter for 6 to 8 minutes.

2) Toss the celery mixture and mix in pepper, sage, salt, thyme leaves, and bread cubes.

3) Bake the stuffing for 30 minutes at 325 degrees with the dish being covered. Uncover the dish and let it bake for 15 more minutes.

 

Finally, the topping of the Thanksgiving meal includes pumpkin pie.

 

  • Pastry for Single-Crust Pie:
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons cold water

 

  • Filling:
  • 2 cups mashed, cooked pumpkin
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporate milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Prepare pie crust by mixing together the flour and salt. Cut shortening into flour; add cold water 1 tablespoon at a time (you may need only 3 tablespoons or up to 4 tablespoons). Mix dough and repeat until dough is moist enough to hold together.
  3. With lightly floured, hands shape dough into a ball. On a lightly floured board roll dough out to about 1/8 inch thickness. With a sharp knife, cut dough 1 1/2 inch larger than the upside-down 8- to the 9-inch pie pan. Gently roll the dough around the rolling pin and transfer it right-side up onto the pie pan. Unroll, easing dough into the bottom of the pie pan.
  4. In a large bowl, beat pumpkin with evaporated milk, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt with an electric mixer or immersion blender. Mix well. Pour into a prepared crust. Bake 40 minutes or until when a knife is inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean.

 

These foods will help to make this Thanksgiving one of the best ever. Be thankful and feast this Thanksgiving.
