Thanksgiving Throwback

Posted November 24, 2014 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Holidays, Pop Culture Corner / 0 Comments

As a holiday based entirely around food, Thanksgiving holds a special place in my heart. Yet as much as I love it, deciding what to cook can be a little intimidating. If you have a potluck-style dinner like my family, pretty much every relative has their “thing” that they make every year. Finding something traditional and festive that someone else isn’t already making can be a challenge. However, a great way to circumvent this problem is to make a dish that uses iconic Thanksgiving flavors in a new way. I’m making Deeper ‘n Ever Turnip ‘n Tater ‘n Beetroot Pie for Thanksgiving this year, since it’s one of my favorite AWR recipes (and TOTALLY tastes like stuffing). In fact, after looking through the archives, I realized we have loads of Thanksgiving-appropriate recipes…

Beorn’s Nutbread with Fruited Honey (The Hobbit)



Roasted Hens in Woodland Wine (The Hobbit)

Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving, folks! I’ll be out of town visiting family, but our usual Thursday recipe will still be posted. Yay for working ahead!
