A nice selection of Thanksgiving Side Dishes to try!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

We are just now getting over the community virus that has plagued us for more than six weeks, it seemed to have cycles of getting better and then rebounding. This has been rather bothersome, to be honest, and to say we are delighted that it appears we are healed is an understatement!

Our Thanksgiving dinner has been planned, all we have left is some shopping and then, of course, a bit of travel to go and be among family and friends. My offering to the combined buffet we shall set out for our group to enjoy is a Roast Turkey with Cornbread Stuffing and Rich Pan Gravy. If all I ever got to eat on this day is cornbread stuffing and gravy, I would be happy!

I look forward to the stuffing every year. Homemade bread, diced and toasted dry in the oven, the same with a pan of our favorite cornbread. The pan drippings enriched by the layer of chopped vegetables to lay the turkey upon for roasting. I think you get the idea...

What I did think I would do is highlight my favorites to share with you, because there are too many to put on our table this year and by sharing I can remember them again. I hope you give them a try. Just simple food, cooked with care and served with love. Exactly what a day of thanks, is all about...

Green Bean Cobbler
Green bean casseroles are a must for so many families. This one is not like the mushroom soup variety (no disrespect intended, we still use a can of this from time to time), this one is even called Green Bean Cobbler, AKA The other green bean casserole. Delightful with sour cream, cheddar cheese, and a crunchy buttered crumb topping.

Cottage Cheese Dinner Buns
So are dinner rolls. These Cottage Cheese Dinner Buns are very festive and so easy! Stir them up, let them sit a bit to proof then ready the dough for baking. They bake up quickly fresh and hot while you are making gravy. Don't forget to pass the butter!

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream
Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream. Pumpkin pie is traditional, but this cream and rich-tasting non-dairy ice cream would be perfect to share as well. Especially for those with food restrictions. It is not only delicious but offers that same great taste we all have come to enjoy and look forward to at Thanksgiving time.
