The Thanksgiving Recipe post

actually, a contractual obligation post, in the Monty Python idiom

so anyway, as far as I know, Gabriel Malor kicked off the meme over at Ace of Spades early this afternoon, with his "Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip". Do go read, it sounds delicious.

In keeping with the contractual obligation, I offer the following recipes for your Thanksgiving enjoyment:

Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie Pudding


1 (15 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup gluten free flour mix
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons butter or margarine (melted)
2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons vanilla

Whipped Cream

In a large bowl mix together the first eight ingredients.
Transfer to small crock pot coated with Pam.
Cover and cook on low 6-7 hours.
Serve in bowls with whip cream, if desired.
Or this:
Apple Crisp

6 apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup apple juice 0r 1/4 cup orange juice/1/4 cup apple juice
1 cup EnjoyLife cinnamon granola
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp canola oil
3 tbsp applesauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
1. Peel and slice apples. Place into 8x8 baking dish or pie plate. Pour juice/s over the apples.
2. In mixing bowl, combine granola, cinnamon, vanilla, canola oil, applesauce and brown sugar. Will form a thick granola batter.
3. Spread topping/batter over sliced apples.
4. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
5. Let cool and drain excess juices if necessary.
This is a good rendition of a butterless apple crisp. Butter is a key to the a "crisp recipe", but this tasted fine without it!
Since tuna isn't a Thanksgiving staple, I offer this one up as a freebie:
Tuna casserole

1 12 oz. box of Lundberg penne rice pasta
1 big can of bumble bee tuna
vegan mayonnaise
1 can organic valley cream of mushroom soup
1 can organic valley cream of celery soup
1 jar pimentos
garlic pieces (hard)
1 8 oz. package of Kraft shredded cheese
almonds, slivered
almond crackers, crushed

cook pasta, mix with tuna, celery, mayo, garlic powder, seasoned salt, pepper, add pimentos and garlic pieces

melt cheese into two cans of soup then add in tuna/pasta mixture

top with paprika

cook on 400 about 25 mins then add the slivered almonds and/or crushed almond crackers for about 8 minutes..
The astute reader will recognize that the all recipes offered are gluten free (even Gabe's recipe), plan your menu accordingly.

This material will be covered on your Final Exam. Study accordingly.
