Thanksgiving Madness

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

For Thanksgiving this year, we of course made classics, like pumpkin pie, but we decided to change it up a little, too. Instead of mashed potatoes, we made Frankenmuth-style buttered noodles, and in addition to homemade rolls we made homemade Arabian pocket bread – like pita bread, but better. It’s a staple in our house, and I found a recipe for it in my school library on a fluke! The bread usually needs a special oven, but the recipe we used works with normal ovens!

Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie:

Grandma’s Cherry Pie!

Yum!  The only way to make a cherry pie is to use true cherry juice, not from concentrate. It’s worth it! =)

Who knew that fancy pie crust was so hard to make? Snow White always made it look so easy…..

A little tip: Cherry juice is great for people with arthritis, because it relieves the pain.

Frankenmuth-Style Cranberry Relish!

For those of you not lucky enough to stop by Frankenmuth’s Zehnder’s restaurant to try the real deal relish, try this recipe here on their website!

Beautiful table, by mom:

Puff Pita Bread!

You can find the recipe for this in Middle Eastern Cooking by Rose Dosti, but there are plenty of recipes like it you can easily find online!

Homemade Overnight Dinner Rolls

My parents LOVED these!

You can find this recipe here on this blog!

Frankenmuth Butter Noodles

My parents go crazy for Frankenmuth’s Bavarian Inn restaurant noodles!  These were pretty close, but they need a little tweaking. The recipe can be found here!

How did you all celebrate Thanksgiving? Comment and tell me about your favorite foods that you made, I’d love to hear about them!
