For Thanksgiving this year… we decided to change things up! Did you know that you don’t have to have turkey and fixings the traditional way.. check out what we did!

 Turkey Burgers with a kick:
1 lb of ground turkey
2 cups Mozzarella cheese
1 package dry ranch dressing mix
Mix everything together and form into patties… then grill!

 Sweet Potato Fries… Go to the store, look in the frozen food aisle and buy a bag of Alexia Spicy Sweet Potato Fries!

Pumpkin Pie (recipe from the back of the Libby’s Pumpkin can … why mess with a good thing):
3/4 cup sugar
1 can pumpkin (16 oz)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 can evaporated milk (12 oz)
2 eggs

Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and pour into a frozen deep dish pie shell. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes than reduce heat to 350 and cook for 40- 50 minutes.

Let cool for 2 hours, then serve or refrigerate.

We also made a batch of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies !

Regardless of what you did for Thanksgiving, I hope you had a fantastic day!
