Thanksgiving was a celebration of food in my family. Roasted Turkey, Dressing, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Sweet Potatoes, Squash, 24 Hour Salad, Rolls, and Pie are my memories of childhood Thanksgiving's.
Thanksgiving Dinner 2011
This year for Thanksgiving the menu was very similar to the above except I substituted brussel sprouts for the sweet potatoes, substituted strawberry salad for the 24 Hour Salad and added green bean casserole to the menu.
Here is Mom's 24 Hour Salad Recipe:
4T. lemon juice
Beat eggs in small pan over low heat along with lemon juice, and sugar. Stir constantly until thick and smooth. Remove from heat, add butter, and cool. When cold, fold into 1/2 pint of whipping cream, whipped. Add:
2 cups oranges, cut up
2 cups pineapple tidbits
2 cups small marshmallows
2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
Store in refrigerator overnight.
