Happy Thanksgiving

Sorry for being so late posting! Here are some vintage images free to use! (Original Source Here)

 In my neck of the woods--if you desperately need a turkey and the stores are sold out, you can attempt to do as this young lad is doing--lasso one up! Last year on Thanksgiving Day we counted 12 wild turkeys in the backyard flying around--in the suburbs no less!

 Apparently the creator of this postcard knew that in 2010 it may become taboo to wish someone a Merry Christmas or Happy Thanksgiving--so he got prepared for a "Happy Holidays" Card.... 4th of July Check.....Thanksgiving Check......Assorted Summer Fruits Check.....Seemingly foolish he left of Easter Eggs, Shamrocks, and any other holiday you can come up with!

 This must have been an early mock-up cover for the Weekly World News--Giant Alien Turkey Responsible for the first Thanksgiving....!

Oh--here is a quick and EASY recipe for a delicious Stuffing/Dressing.....

3 Boxes Reduced Sodium Chicken Flavored Stove Top Stuffing
1 Can Whole Berry Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce
1 Can Pear Halves in Lite Syrup, roughly chopped
3/4 cup Water
3/4 cup White Wine--something you'd drink by itself--not 'cooking wine'
1/2 Cup Butter or Margarine
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
A few sprigs rosemary, stems removed (optional)

In the first pan, add cranberry sauce, pears with juice, and half of the butter. Bring to boil. Stir to incorporate butter/fruit mixture--try not to break up the cranberries. Add 2 boxes of stuffing mix. Stir mixture, remove from heat and cover to keep warm.

Meanwhile, In a second pan add water, wine, rosemary (optional), and the rest of the butter. Bring to boil. Stir occasionally. Add 3rd box of stuffing. Mix well. Season with Black Pepper.

Now, fold both the cranberry stuffing in with the white-wine rosemary stuffing--fold gently. This creates a beautiful two-toned effect. You'll be able to see the berries and bits of pear and rosemary throughout!

This is really delicious and takes about 10 min. to make. Serve it up in a vintage Jadite mixing bowl for true Shabby French Cottage style! This should serve 12, but I'd plan on 6-8 because people will want seconds!

I don't recommend using this to actually stuff a turkey. If you must serve it from the turkey, cook them separately, then add the stuffing.

 Make sure you have your children change out of their Sunday Best before they go out and hunt dinner....this image almost makes me want tofurky...

This poor turkey has no idea that two sweetly dressed children are about to attack him as he strolls oh so merrily down the lane! If you are a Turkey I'd be on the look--for a boy in a blue sailor suite and a girl in a pink overcoat that looks like she's already gotten hold of the Easter Bunny!

Happy Thanksgiving All!
