Monday Mashup! November 21, 2011
Here’s how it works: Every Sunday I’ll post a question on the DFD! Facebook page. Post your answer in a comment over there, along with your personal, business or blog web site URL. I’ll post everyone’s answers and URLs on Monday right here at the DFD! blog.
It’s an easy way connect with like-minded readers and bloggers.
TODAY’S QUESTION: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving side dish? (Extra question: How could you revamp that awesome dish with an all-natural, organic, or locally sourced version?).
Here are your answers!
“I’m pretty traditional when it comes to Thanksgiving side dishes. I love the sweet potatoes with marshmallows and the taters with gravy, but the one thing I can’t miss out on is cranberry sauce. Growing up we always had the jellied stuff in a can (that weird stuff you slice with a knife – that’s not natural, but I love it!). A friend of mine showed me an easy recipe for making your own cranberry sauce and it’s so good and so much simpler (and better for you) than the jellied stuff. It’s just cranberries, sugar, water and some spices like cinnamon to taste. What’s not to love!” -Sara, Sarandipity
“I’m all about rolls or biscuits. I’m a bread girl. I love it with Strawberry or raspberry jam. My mom makes the freezer jam with strawberries or raspberries from her garden. sooooooooooooooooo good!” – Corey, Living and Loving Every Minute Of It
“Mustard Greens with rutabaga is one of my favorite side dishes. We always have some sort of greens on the table at Thanksgiving . This year, I am so happy to say I have a new bff, Organic Farmer.” -Donna, Great Life Mastery
“Squash casserole! SO good, my mom has been making it ever since I can remember and now I make it for my family! Very much already made with fresh, natural ingredients.” – Jaimie
And my own answer: I am a sucker for some sweet potato souffle – with some un-Pilgrim-like marshmallows and some sort of sweet, crusty, crumbly stuff on top. Is it brown sugar? Soooo good, I hardly even notice the gigantic amounts of vitamin A. And I couldn’t tell you what the difference is between a sweet potato and a yam. I bet they both taste great smothered in gooey tradition.
