The Recipe for Thanksgiving

BXP45536Often I am reminded of how blessed I am.  God has provided for me so much since my first day of becoming a part of this world.  I have parents that love me.  My wife and boys are more than I could ever have imagined I would have.  Our extended family is awesome as well.  We have a roof over our heads and food to eat everyday and so much more.  We all have given our lives to God by receiving His Son, Jesus.  Now that’s a recipe for Thanksgiving.  Thank You, Lord.

Here is the project.  Can you help me?  Will you or your spouse (Ladies, I may need your help significantly on this one) add a favorite Thanksgiving recipe in the comments below?  I’ll start, here goes.  By the way, HAPPY THANKSGIVING next week to you and yours!

One of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes:



2 c. self-rising flour, 1 1/2 c. buttermilk, 1c. self-rising cornmeal, 1 egg (beaten), 3 T. shortening (melted)

Combine flour, cornmeal and melted shortening.  Add buttermilk and egg.  Mix well.  Bake in a large pan at 400 degrees until browned and firm.


1 recipe cornbread, 4 eggs, 1/2 c. onion, 1/2 c. celery, 1/4 tsp. black pepper, 1 1/2 tsp. sage or poultry seasoning, Approx. 4 – 5 c. chicken or turkey broth

Crumble cornbread and add onion, celery, pepper, sage and eggs.  Add enough broth to make real thin.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until brown.

    Green Bean Almandine

    3 cups fresh green beans
    1 teaspoon sea salt
    1 teaspoon crushed basil
    enough water to cover beans (I cook most of water out)
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

    Cook the above ingredients on low heat with the lid on until beans are tender. Don’t over cook. They are to be on the crunchy side. The last 5 minutes of cooking, add 3 tablespoons of slivered almonds.
