Revitalize Thanksgiving Day 2

It's thanksgiving day 2. Here are a couple ways you can redo your menu to keep it interesting.

Super Easy Whipped Cream

  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 table spoon of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
Taste it to see if you like the taste or if you need to add any more sugar or extract. Mix together until peaks form. Hint (it will take four times longer if you try to hand mix it. If you have a mixer use it!) 
Redo Cranberry Sauce
  • Cranberries to the color you want
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/16 cup of sugar
  • A couple walnuts 
Bring your water to a boil and add in the sugar until it dissolves. Add your cranberries in and bring the sauce back to a boil. ( I only had canned cranberries. I was a little nervous that it wouldn't turn out but it stilled tasted good.) Add in your walnuts. Only let it the walnuts stay in for a minute or so. Don't let them burn. It may look a little thin but it will thicken once you let it cool in the fridge. 

A couple add ons to the top:
  • Add a little brown sugar on top of the sweet potatoes
  • Add garlic to your white potatoes
  • OR rub some garlic on the plate before you add your white potatoes or your stuffing
