    I love the corn casserole already posted. I love creamy mashed potatoes. another favorite is maple glazed turnips.peel and dice up some purple top turnips...melt some butter in a saute pan, when the butter is melted add in the turnips to coat, add in chicken stock to cover half way up the single layer of turnips, cook stirring occasionally, when most of the stock has reduced and turnips are fork tender add in some maple syrup stir to coat and reduce... this is yummy!

    I have made this jello mold ever since my kids were small,which has been about 40 years. I always make two, one with the nuts and one without. I only make it for Thanksgiving dinner, as then it is a special treat, plus I really never make jello molds anymore. Enjoy! JELLO MOLD FOR THANKSGIVING2 SMALL PKS OF STRAWBERRY JELLO2 CUPS BOILING WATER1 CUP OF cold WATER2 CUPS OF SOUR CREAMCHOPPED NUTSYOU CAN DOUBLE THIS AND DIVIDE BETWEEN TWO MOLDS.Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water. Add one cup of cold water. Add two cups of sour cream and mix well (I use a hand mixer). Add chopped nuts, as many as you like (I use walnuts).
