Thanksgiving Wishes

This Holiday week there is no View From Here contribution,
so you get a little something from yours truly.

Because it's Thanksgiving Day here, and a holiday is a holiday.
(Meaning, taking the day OFF!)

Just a quick message of THANKS for YOU.

For your comments.
Your shares.
Your support.
Your friendship.

I can't say I couldn't do it without you,
'cause I could....

But doing it WITH you, is so much better!

I wanted to give you a little something.
A yummy something....

One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving dinner is cranberry sauce.
Last year, Mark found a recipe for HOMEMADE cranberry sauce that is DELICIOUS.
We are having it again this year.
I do believe it will be a staple at our table forevermore.

The recipe is from Emeril Lagasse.

Even though it's from a fancy chef, it's really easy.
(I don't do complicated, people.)

It goes like this:

Homemade Cranberry Sauce with Port Wine and Orange

2 cups cranberries
Juice and zest of 1 orange
1/4 cup Port wine
1/2 cup sugar, or more if needed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon cornstarch

In a small saucepan combine cranberries, orange juice and zest, port, sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmering and cook until cranberries are tender, stirring occasionally. In a small cup make a slurry with cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Whisk cornstarch mixture into cranberry sauce and cook, whisking, until sauce thickens. Taste and add more sugar, if necessary.

See? So easy.

AND SO GOOD! Totally worth the extra effort.

I made mine yesterday and plan to just warm it up today.

Here's hoping we all have good Thanksgiving meals with people we love!
