November brings thoughts of thankfulness and times of gathering with family and friends to share a meal together and to celebrate the holiday season. Perhaps you have traditional family recipes that always make the Thanksgiving meal list; or maybe you need some ideas to help with this year’s holiday feast. Below are some recipes we have found for you that will allow you to use some of the items you have harvested this year in your garden or raised bed or patio containers. You may have canned or frozen fruits and vegetables from this year that will work great for your Thanksgiving dinner preparations.
For breakfast we have a Baked Western Omelet, Fluffy Belgian Waffles, or a Winter Fruit Salad with Maple-Lime Dressing . For a light lunch, we have an Autumn Apple Salad with a Maple Vinaigrette dressing. For late afternoon appetizers, we have Butternut Squash Apple Bruschetta, Classic Stuffed Mushrooms, and a Thanksgiving Punch.
And for the main Thanksgiving meal, we have the following recipe options from which you can choose: Herb Garlic & Butter Roasted Turkey and Turkey Gravy from Scratch; Apple Cider Maple Glazed Ham; Simple is Best Dressing; Green Bean Bundles with Bacon and Brown Sugar; Broccoli Casserole; Secret Ingredient Honey Garlic Roasted Carrots; World’s Best Mashed Potatoes; Hasselback Sweet Potatoes with Brown Sugar & Pecans; Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Cinnamon, Butternut Squash, Pecans, & Cranberries; and Nantucket Corn Pudding. Then for dessert, we have Apple Pie Bread Pudding and Layered Pumpkin Dessert with Homemade Pumpkin Puree.
To help take care of your leftover turkey, we have included a recipe for Thanksgiving Leftover Turkey and Stuffing Muffins. Enjoy!
In the midst of the holiday festivities, don’t forget that November is a great month for pruning deciduous trees, planting spring bulbs, amending beds for spring planting, or refreshing raised beds. For these projects, we recommend using Daddy Pete’s Composted Cow Manure, Daddy Pete’s Lawn & Garden Soil, and Daddy Pete’s Planting Mix. If you haven’t fertilized your lawn for the Fall months, November is still an excellent time to spread Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer pellets on your yard. It will not burn and it is safe for pets and children.
