Our Thanksgiving meal usually consists of:
Turkey with Stuffing cooked in.
Stuffing casserole on the side (Usually Pepperidge Farm with celery and onion)
Homemade Mashed Potatoes and gravy
Fresh green beans with 'shrooms
Spicy Orange Yams
Orange Jell-O Mold with carrots and pineapple
My mom always makes everything from scratch..nothing storebought outside the ingredients. Of course everyone is in a food coma afterwards..
For anyone that likes yams..
My Grandma's Spicy Orange Yams. Simple recipe, but DELISH.
2 small or 1 large can of Bruce's Yams. (Or substitute fresh if desired..)
4 T of orange juice concentrate (frozen)
1/2 cup of brown sugar (packed)
1/4 cup of butter
Orange slices (if desired)
Drain yams. Melt butter in large frying pan over medium heat. Add OJ and sugar, mixing well to dissolve sugar. Add yams. Cook over medium low-medium heat approx. ten minutes, stirring frequently to coat yams. Remove from heat, serve right away. Top with orange slices. You can add marshmallows if desired, but I always leave them out.
