Traditions are very important to me, but I love trying new things. I have found several recipes that I think would add to our typical Thanksgiving dinner; some I know won’t ever make it to the table due to odd ingredients and picky eaters, and others may become a new staple. Either way, I plan on attempting a few of these this year.
Here are my top 5. I could put like 50, but I narrowed it down to the ones I definitely want to try. (Some may have to wait for Christmas.)
5. Spaghetti Squash Casserole
I found several spaghetti squash recipes, and one I really liked in the H-E-B magazine, but there are a million out there. This Cheesy Spaghetti Squash recipe from a list on the Huffington Post looks pretty awesome too. It’s fall, and I feel as if squash goes under appreciated for it’s awesomeness. I may make my own squashy creation instead of following a particular recipe.
4. Pumpkin Spiked Latte
I am going to alter this recipe from HEB.com slightly but using a different brand of canned pumpkin and by making my own crust instead of buying a pre-made one.
I found this recipe in the My HEB Texas Life Magazine. If you live in Texas, these monthly magazines are free and usually in the front of the store or at a register.
You can find some awesome geek recipes at geekychef.com . For those of you who aren’t Legend of Zelda fans, this soup is from Twilight Princes and is made as a side quest. I am opting out of adding any meat to my soup though…definitely not fish. I have already purchased the ingredients and will be attempting this recipe some time next week. As opposed to adding fish or chicken I am only using chicken broth, and instead of fresh basil I am using dried.
