Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Well this simply deserves to be reblogged:


Tired of the same ‘ol, traditional Thanksgiving dinner menu year after year? Mix it up giving the menu an exotic twist! What a great way to make Thanksgiving fun. If you think about it’s our most boring holiday – all we do is eat – but not any more. Greet each guest with a lei, spin Martin Denny on the stereo console and serve your fave tropical cocktail,. After desert do the limbo. How low can you go … after a Tiki Turkey Dinner???

Replacing the roast tom turkey with a turkey meatloaf shaped like a Tiki gives “carving the turkey” a whole new meaning. Mangoes make cranberry sauce sensational. Cornbread stuffing becomes Hawaiian bread stuffing with diced ham and crushed pineapple. Doctor the yams up with bananas, Kahlua and macadamia nuts on top of the toasted marshmallows.

Coconut curry completely reinvents the green bean casserole. Mashed potatoes are served in the shape of a volcano and the gravy is “lava.” For desert – something really special…and flaming – the pineapple upside down cake version of the Cherpumple – a three layer yellow cake. An apple pie and a pumpkin pie are each baked into the bottom two layers of cake and the top layer is Pineapple upside down cake. Frost the sides with white icing finished in coconut. Flambé top and serve.

It’s lovely!  Read more here:
