Is it just me or did November fly by wayyyy too swiftly? I am having guests for Thanksgiving Dinner and I am way behind on my preparations. The Christmas openhouse went great and we had a wonderful time. I am looking forward to our next openhouse which is Dec 5 and 6. It is fun to sell a lot of things but more fun to just be with friends.
I had intended to post several recipes throughout November that could be used for your Thanksgiving meal but as I said time just got away from me. I am going to post one recipe tonight though and hope to post several good ones throughout December that can be used for your special Christmas Dinners.
Frozen Cranberry Salad is a favorite in our family and my kids would be VERY UPSET if I did not make it for our Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners. I only make it twice a year because it has whipping cream in it!! It is very delicious I think you will love it.
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons white sugar
1 (16 ounce) can whole cranberry sauce
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix together cream cheese, butter, sugar, cranberry sauce, pineapple and nuts. Set aside.
Whip heavy cream with powdered sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form.
Fold into cranberry mixture.
Now you can put it in a loaf pan, freeze and then slice it. I like to put my
salad in a pretty bowl, freeze and let my guests scoop out as much as they want. That's it....simple yet delicious.
Frozen Cranberry Salad...
WILL be on Farmchick's Thanksgiving table on Thursday!!!
