Tips for Thanksgiving Feast

Aug 17, 2007
For Thanksgiving party food must be simple and easy to serve, the can be prepared ahead of time without wasting so much time. From the following take a tip on which food would be the best and lovable to all your friends and relatives.

In planning your Thanksgiving feast make it as easy to serve as possible. That usually means serving those foods that can be prepared ahead of time. To save time and avoid the confusion of serving appetizers at the table we like to spread out a serve-yourself arrangement of cranberry cocktail and wafers on the living-room table. It adds a welcome air as the guests arrive.

Here's a good recipe for cranberry cocktail which, with the exception of lemon and orange juice, can be prepared the previous day. Cook four cups of washed berries in six cups of water until the berries are very soft and mushy. Strain through cheesecloth. Add one cup of sugar to strained juice and heat until sugar is dissolved. Chill. Add the juice of one lemon and one orange just before serving.

For the Thanksgiving dinner roast turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, peach pickles, fruit salad, buttered asparagus, hot rolls and jelly are traditional with us. Mince pie and pumpkin pie compete for first place as a favorite dessert with after-dinner coffee.

As soon as the guests are seated at the table and the head of the house is busy with the carving why not give him a break by diverting the attention of the guests while he carves. Have a small pad and pencil at each place. Read the following questionnaire. Be sure to allow enough time for each guest to write the answer to the questions as you read. Here's a sample one that's fun:

1. Name the part of the turkey that assists a lady in dressing Comb
2. Name the part of the turkey that opens the front door (last part) Key
3. Part of a turkey that appears after Thanksgiving Bill
4. Part of a turkey that's part of a sentence Claws (clause)
5. Part of a turkey that is used for cleaning Wings (dusters)
6. Part of a turkey that the farmer watches carefully Crop
7. Part of a turkey that is an oriental (first part) Turk
8. Why ought the turkey be ashamed. We see the turkey dressing
9. Why is a fast eater like a turkey? Both are fast gobblers
10. What color gets its name from turkey? Turkey red
11. When the turkey is cooking what country is he in? Grease (Greece)
12. What part of a turkey is a story? Tail (tale)
13. What part of a turkey appears on the battlefield? Drumstick

By the time the questions are all answered the host will have finished the carving. Collect the answers to be read while the dessert is being served. To the guest with the greatest number of correct answers goes the blue ribbon turkey cut from brown construction paper with a blue ribbon around its neck.

Entertained your guests by asking some question related to Thanksgiving Party while serving a delicious dessert, they would definitely have fun and enjoy the party.
