Thanksgiving Tradition

Posted on

This week we thought we’d share our favorite Thanksgiving recipes/traditions. Despite my (Beth’s) European background, Thanksgiving has become one of my favorite holidays! Here’s one of my family’s favorite appetizers that we enjoy together. Pair it with a mimosa or Sangria early in the day! It is very tangy, but very tasty for those of you who like stronger flavors:

Start the Day off Right

  • One baguette
  • Goat cheese
  • Onion, finely chopped
  • Capers
  • Sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • Garlic, minced

Slice baguette and toast (easiest to toast on cookie pan in oven on broil- that way you can toast a lot in one go)
Mix together goat cheese, onion, sun-dried tomato and garlic. Spread on bread and sprinkle with capers. Voila!

Grandma’s Apple Pie

Every year I looked forward to eating my Grandma Schomburg’s apple pie.  I begged her for years for the recipe and she always said she never wrote anything down she just “made it.”  One year she did write it down and even though hers always tastes more special, at least I can enjoy it more than once a year.  One simple change is to get pre-made crusts. It doesn’t make them not homemade! Just not from my home.

For me this is more than a holiday, this is tradition at its best!

We wish all of you many of your own blessed recipes and traditions! Happy Thanksgiving!
