View Full Version : Thanksgiving ideas for this coming weekend?
10-04-2007, 03:36 PM
Well, for those in Canada, we're looking forward to the long weekend this coming weekend when we celebrate our Thanksgiving.
This is only the second time I'm going to prepare something special, so I thought I'd get a thread going. Anyone have any ideas on what they're going to prepare?

Someone just bumped a thread about this recently. I'll see if I can't find it and back to you ~ Cathy

Used the banana search (at the top) and found it!

I don't know about this bump thing but...a couple of nights ago I tried to make some corn crackers. I didn't have all the ingredients so I put a bag of frozen corn, 1/2 onion, little green pepper and some ground flax in the blender, for just a bit the corn was mushy, but still chuncky, then put it in the dehydrator over night.
The next morning I had the BEST scalloped corn ever. It was like the whole batch was as good as the topping used to be on cooked scalloped corn. Yummm,,That will be on our T-day table I hope. Still a ways away.

Diana, did you ever look at the responses from your previous thread? there was no acknowledgement whatsoever of any responses, and someone else asked you further questions to try to help you but they just went unanswered.

Hi. Just checking that other link. Have a couple of challenges; my ISP totally buggered up everything and so I went shopping for another one. When I advised them of the fact that I was switching companies and to let me know when my cut-off date was with them, the cockroaches cut me off right then and there!! Needless to say, that totally screwed me up in many ways. So I'm here trying to do all that is necessary on the net in small windows available at work! <sigh> So if I've missed responding to anyone besides this other thread, pls be advised that I'll be following up once I get my new ISP which hopefully will be in up to, but hopefully less than, 2 weeks.
Thanks for everyone's responses. I'll keep looking, however. The corn sounds very interesting. And there is some organic corn available right now, which is not usually the case.

Don't know why the link above didn't work for me, but after searching, found this:

someone on here posted "stuffing nuggets" a while ago, it has that nice poultry seasoning type taste of traditional turkey stuffing.
here's a link to that discussion, which might help in general, as it was a Christmas dinner discussion.
I sometimes make a raw pumpkin type pie (picture and approx recipe in this thread)
Note that you need a really ripe nice orangey rich squash for it to work, if your squash is too young and waxy it doesn't come out as nice.
There's also a fake pumpkin pie recipe in Raw Food Real World that doesn't have any pumpkin in it.
I'm thinking I'll make something cranberry this year, not a cranberry sauce (which is possible raw BTW) but maybe a cranberry dessert or cookie or something just to involve the cranberry.
