It's Soup Time...


Erica, you're the winner of the Progresso Soup giveaway! I will be emailing you to get your name and address to send to our sponsors. Again, thanks all for entering and thanks to our sponsors, Progresso and My BlogSpark for their generosity. 

A note of correction is in order. I was chatting with my dear friend and Thanksgiving host, Nancy, about yesterday's post and cranberry martinis. She let me know that we are in for a change and there is a new yummy beverage being featured tomorrow made with pomegranate. I will definitely share my review over the weekend. I also am going for a change in one of my Thanksgiving contributions. One of my standards for a number of years is cranberry pear relish with ginger. We all like it and it's requested every year. But this year I saw a recipe for cranberry apple ginger relish with jalepeno, and decided that it was time for a change. I was a little wary of the jalepeno, but the recipe sounded so good. I will let you know if this is as popular as our standard cranberry treat. For those of you who are twitter friends, I am planning to tweet the recipe. 

Do you mix it up and try new holiday recipes or do you stay with the tried and true? We are sticking with our  beloved brussel sprouts and not abandoning turkey, but there will be some new dishes around the table. Best of all there will be familiar faces, loving hearts and grateful thoughts as we celebrate.

We have a different dinner every year...this year is salmon, mussels, roasted new red potatoes, all with brown butter and dill sauce. Oh, and sauteed snap peas, baby carrots, and baby bellas. And turtle cheesecake for dessert.

Can't wait to hear how the new drink and cranberry dish turn out! Sadly, I'm the only person here who likes cranberries.

Joyful Thanksgiving!

Hope you enjoyed your dinner. The secret to using jalapenos is to remove all the seeds. Seeds gone, heat gone.
