Gobble Gobble

I am so ready to pig out tomorrow, & I have no shame in admitting it. I know I'll come away from the table completely miserable, but that won't stop me one bit. We are having Thanksgiving dinner at my grandparent's house this year, & I was put in charge of a few things. I'm bringing the pumpkin pie because it's my favorite, an apple pie, & my mom's 5 Cup salad. I have absolutely no idea where the recipe for 5 Cup Salad came from, but we make it every year. The recipe is so ridiculously easy...seriously...a child could make it. The pumpkin pie is the usual recipe, & for the apple pie I chose The Pioneer Woman's Flat Apple Pie recipe.

5 Cup Salad
1 c. sour cream
1 c. shredded coconut
1 c. mandarin oranges
1 c. crushed pineapple
1 c. miniature marshmallows

Combine all ingredients & set in the fridge overnight.

Pumpkin Pie

1 (9 inch) deep dish pie crust
3/4 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
2 large eggs
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, & cloves in a small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar/spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk. Pour into pie shell.
Bake for 15 minutes then reduce temperature to 350 degrees; bake for another 40 to 50 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

(I won't post this recipe since it's in her new cookbook. You'll just have to buy it to find out.) :-)
I hope everyone has a very happy & safe Turkey Day!!!
