What a Happy Thanksgiving we had this year!!! It required a LOT of obsessive planning, which involved and EXCEL spreadsheet, but it was WELL worth it because it went off without a hitch!!!
Due to the raging success, I feel obligated to share my recipes and plans with my devoted imaginary friends.
1 large box of cherry jello
1 can of crushed pineapple, drained and save about 1 cup of juice
1/2 cup of nuts I used Butter Toffee Pecans
Chop cranberries in food processor. Mix chopped cranberries with 1/2 cup of sugar. Let soak for a couple of hours. Mix 2 cups of hot water with jello. Add 1 cup of cold water with 1 cup of drained pineapple juice. Add cranberries, pineapple and nuts. Refrigerate for several hours. This will make a TON!!!
My spreadsheet consisted of a timetable for reheating/heating everything. A less compulsive person could just write out a list. ;)
Here you have it!! Thanksgiving made easy so that you can ENJOY your day, family and guests.
