*I'm reposting this because I had to delete the first one. You see, in trying to participate in Dani's Thanksgiving Recipe Link-up thingy, I brilliantly linked to my Typepad editing page, where people could then just start clicking around in my blog account. It's a good thing I'm so good at all this technology junk.
Cut two loaves of cornbread into fourths. Then cut it into thinner pieces and put it in a bowl. Get 1/2 cup of water. Add some seasonings to it, like one teaspoon cinnamon and one cup of pumpkin seeds. Cut up a whole onion into ring slices. Cut up a half bag of parsley. Use a cutting board so you can cut it into small pieces. Add four teaspoons of sugar and ten shakes of pepper. Mix all the seasonings with water. Pour the seasoned water into the cornbread. Put it in a pan and bake it for an hour at 100*. Cut some holes in the turkey and stuff the stuffing into it. Put the extra parsley around the turkey to make it look nice.
Max came home from first grade with a whole recipe book full of hilarious recipes like this one. Ben and I were in tears reading through them all. This following recipe is the my favorite thing about Thanksgiving and the only thing I really care about from the whole meal. It may be all I eat today.
Cleburne Cafeteria Baked Squash Casserole
10 medium yellow squash, sliced
1 to 2 Tbsp oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
6 medium eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp each: salt & black pepper
40 (about) saltine crackers (1 stack pack), crushed
3 Tbs melted margarine
Drop squash into a small amount of boiling water. Cook, covered, until crisp-tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain well. In a skillet, heat oil and saute onion. Add to squash with eggs, sugar, salt, and pepper; mix well.
Heat oven to 350* (325* if using a glass dish). Spray a 13x9x2 in casserole dish with nonstick spray, or grease dish and place squash mixture in it. Top with crushed crackers and brush with melted margarine. Bake 30-35 minutes. Serve hot. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
I've never actually made this. My mother always makes it for me. The one year she didn't, I had a bit of a fit, true to my only child ways. I'm happy to report she's currently in my kitchen making it for me today. I guess this won't be much of a help to anyone as today is the day, but maybe you can enjoy this most favorite squash of mine sometime soon. Happy Thanksgiving!
