Well to start with Thanksgiving Day is what I like to call the hectic start off. I go a month ahead of time, and see where I can get real cranberries at a good price, and take what I can home canning them for Thanksgiving & Christmas. Instead of the can of Cranberry Sauce, I go for the real sauce. I know most can't stand the poignent taste, and aroma of Cranberries. I use what I don't cook on the Christmas tree. Still I keep them frozen. Here is my recipe for Cranberry Sauce.
1 pint of Cranberries canned
3 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice.
Mix all ingredience in a pot on the stove once the cranberry are purried with a blender, and thawed. You have to freeze the canned cranberries in order for them to stay good in waiting. When the pot comes to a boil remove it from the burner, and pour the sauce into a serving bowl, and walla homemade cranberries. You can always use the can at the store too. Mine is just what my family likes.
1 can whipped cream
1 can pumpkin pie
1 pie tin from the Dollar Tree, General, Family Dollar, or whereever it is cheap.
Then spread the pumpkin pie after opening the can in the tin, and bake it in the oven for 15 minutes. Top with whipped cream spread out over it. Serve. I wanted to make it as simple as I could for ya. This can't get any simpler. In all I say delicious.
The rest is history, as we all have our traditions.
Well happy holidays from Frugal and Tightwad Tanya
