Thanksgiving Table 2016: Pumpkin Pie and Cranberry Sauce

This year, I baked the pumpkin pie and made the cranberry sauce.

I didn't have all the spices called for in the recipe, so I only added cinnamon, nutmeg and went very easy on the cloves.

As for the cranberry sauce, I prepared it just as suggested on the package of fresh cranberries, one cup water, one cup sugar per 12 ounce package of cranberries. Only this time, I prepared two packages worth of cranberries, because cranberry sauce is the thing that always runs out first. 

Cranberry sauce always goes fast!


  1. Your meal looks great. My favorite is homemade cranberry sauce on mash potatoes.

    1. Thanks, Julia. I have never tried cranberry sauce on mashed potatoes. We usually eat it separately.
