Holiday Help

Thought I'd give a repeat of an easy recipe, just in case you are tasked with bringing something to your Thanksgiving dinner, and you haven't a clue. I guarantee that you'll like it... or somebody will.

Cranberry Applesauce

2 cups water

2 cups sugar

2 oranges, peeled (obviously) and cut into small pieces

2 apples, peeled and cored (again, obviously) and cut into small pieces

2 cups fresh cranberries (whole)

Boil water and sugar for about 5 minutes. Mix in oranges and apples. Boil 15 minutes more. Add cranberries. Boil until berries start popping (between 10 and 15 minutes). Mash and store in quart jar, or serve.

Too easy. Again, if drinking, be aware that your reflexes will be slowed and you may get pelted with popping berries. They hurt.

I was going to make this, but instead, I've been tasked with slaving over the stove for something else. I've gotta bring the pop.

What the...?! Non-alcoholic??? People are spending time in close proximity with their families, for crying out loud. Non-alcoholic recipes aren't any help!


Have a great Thanksgiving!

Heheh... the alcohol will already be consumed. Fritz opens at 9, has Tom and Jerrys and other hot toddies along with the normal beverages.

He closes at noon, and my dinner is at 12:30...

My own recipe, which I'll be bringing to a Thanksgiving party I'm attending, includes the following ingredients:

Two fifths of Sauza's Tres Generaccion tequila, a case of Pilsner Urquel beer and the presence of yours truly.

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends.
